Man fired after Twitter request for drugs is retweeted by police A Canadian man has lost his job after he requested a marijuana delivery on Twitter, which was seen and re-tweeted by the police department.
"Any dealers in Vaughan wanna make a 20sac chop? Come to Keele/Langstaff Mr. Lube, need a spliff," the man tweeted.

York Regional Police noticed the publicly visible request and decided to reply. "Awesome! Can we come too?," they replied on Twitter with an RT of the original request.


The shop, Mr Lube (.. seriously), told CBC News later that the man was fired for requesting that drugs be brought to the workplace, and thanked the police force.
