Not a fan of pot, but it is good to know which businesses to not be leaving one's money at. If they can use such things as firing pretext, I feel pretty certain their HR policies are not the most worker-friendly ones to begin with.

For sake of respect for workers integrity and ability to feel safe and have stability, companies like this needs to be boycotted if you think the above makes sense.

Good for them to bring him back, but clearly due to bad PR and feedback, IMHO. Sounds very similar to Costco's political censorship of a book of recent and THEN they backpedalled after being caught.

The Costco boss is apparently a good companion of Obama. Companies that keep politicizing agendas at the cost of normal people's dignity and well being needs to get similar respect back.

Costco was very obvious. Bigotry, but this one was not far away.
