Twitter plea for pot costs Canadian his job
OTTAWA, Province of Ontario (AFP) - A Toronto area mechanic who posted a Twitter message seeking marijuana to alleviate boredom at work this week got an unexpected reply - from police with an apparent sense of humour.
The young man also lost his job after his boss was alerted, Canadian media said on Thursday.
Posting under the user name Sunith Baheerathan, he wrote on Tuesday: "Any dealers in Vaughan wanna make a 20sac chop? Come to Keele/Langstaff Mr. Lube, need a spliff or two to help me last this open to close (shift)."
Police spotted the post and were first to reply: "Awesome! Can we come too?"
