"Aspiring mechanic" Sunith Baheerathan, 20, was apparently looking for some pot to get him through the day at a Vaughn, Ontario, auto shop.

Baheerathan, who’s Twitter handle trended locally, tried to brush off the incident.
I just caused a huge outrage on Twitter over one tweet. Y'all really gotta stop taking tweets serious lmao— Sunith Baheerathan (@Sunith_DB8R) August 13, 2013
It's not the first time York Regional Police have scolded Twitter users for drug use. YRP told off a Vaughn-area woman named Brittany last year. Oddly, she actually offered Baheerathan some words of wisdom.

Update: On Wednesday afternoon, CBC News confirmed that Baheerathan was no longer employed by Mr. Lube. He's since deleted his Twitter account.
