    "Mike Boyer, the national treasure and inspiration to us all who lost his job after becoming Spokane, Wa.'s first legal weed buyer, is going back to work.



    Newsweek reports that TrueBlue, a staffing agency that employs Boyer, changed its mind about firing him:



    '"TrueBlue got ahold of me and offered me my job back," Mike told Newsweek.

    "I'll accept it and we'll see where it goes from there," he said.

    "The reason they said they gave me my job back was because their policy says you cannot be under the influence at work, which I was not, and since I officially had the day off, what I did on my time was my time.

    And they gave me my job back, and even gave me a day's worth of pay that I missed."'"* The Young Turks hosts Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies), Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show), and Gina Grad (Pretty Good Podcast) break it down.
