    The Limits of Libertarianism (must-read)

    First legal-marijuana buyer in Spokane fired … but gets job back

    First, the good news for Boyer, the temp agency that was giving him 40 hours a week working in the auto-auction industry – TrueBlue Labor Ready — has, he told us, given him his job back and will pay him for the day he missed, Wednesday. Boyer accepted the job and pay.

    The Associated Press got a hold of TrueBlue: “Stacey Burke, a spokeswoman Tacoma-based TrueBlue, says company policy prohibits being under the influence on the job. She said there’s no reason he would have been fired for having bought the pot, nor would the purchase have given the company reason to order him to take a drug test. She says the company is looking into Boyer’s claims, and that if he was fired outside of protocol, he would be reinstated.”

    It’s about time for the IDF to stop putzing around and take a leaf from the Assad pere/fils playbook and apply Hama Rules to the Gaza Strip.
