Man Tweets For Weed; Job Goes Up In Smoke

Note to self: When soliciting for drugs on Twitter, try a direct message.

Facing another boring day at work, a Toronto car repair shop worker decided some weed would be just the thing to make the day fly by.

Instead of reaching out by phone or walking to his friendly neighborhood drug dealer, the user, using the handle @Sunith_DB8R, tweeted that he needed a joint delivered to his workplace in Vaughan, just north of Toronto.

The York Regional Police, @YRP, caught a whiff of the request and enthusiastically — perhaps too enthusiastically — responded with, “Awesome! Can we come too?”

You can imagine what happens next.

The police forwarded the tweet to an account for a man listed on the board of directors for the repair shop chain.

But it didn’t end there.
