The first man to buy legal, recreational marijuana under Washington state's new drug laws claims he lost a job due to the news coverage he attracted.

Kodiac Security said it still employs Michael Kelly Boyer, according to KREM 2 News, but his other employer, Labor Ready, has requested he take and pass a drug test by Thursday.

Boyer posted his claim and resume on Craigslist in a post titled "LOST MY JOB! still #1 tho!!"

"I lost my job due to the news coverage of me being the FIRST PERSON TO BUY MARIJUANA LEGALLY IN SPOKANE! I regret nothing. But now im jobless and have decided to post my resume here. Thanks for reviewing it," Boyer wrote.

On Tuesday, Washington became only the second state to allow people to buy marijuana legally without a doctor's note.
