Grand Rapids Press sports writer David Mayo, now a convicted felon for a marijuana cultivation is getting his old job back at the Press. This on the same day many of his fellow employees are on the way out.
Apparently police found more than 200 marijuana plants growing at the Mayo home, but he pleaded to a lesser crime. The 200 plants were for "personal use." That's a lot of personal use.
Mayo seems to be drawing as much ire over his lawyer's comment about his "humiliating" experience as a waiter as his drug use. Many of the long thread of comments are pretty brutal.
Some of the commenters appear to be Booth employees (anonymously) poking fun at the company's "zero tolerance" drug policy.
For my part, I believe everyone deserves a second chance, but it does raise some questions about how serious Booth is over its employee drug policy.
