Burger King’s Weed Happy Meal, seems to fit into the ‘Have it Your Way’ Slogan of the fast food restaurant, but this time went too far, when a 4 year old found a weed pipe in his order at the Burger King located in Dundee, Michigan.
The grandfather was shocked when he saw the stuffed pot pipe in the kid’s meal.
“The boy’s grandfather notified the police after he went to pick up food for his family at the Burger King in Dundee, Mich., Richard Uhl, chief of the Dundee Police Department, told ABC News. The family was on vacation at Splash Universe, a water park in Dundee. He had bought a happy meal for the 4-year-old, only to find a smoking pipe filled with marijuana nestled within its contents. The grandfather promptly returned the happy meal.”
The marijuana pipe belonged to a 23 year old Burger King’s employee, he said he did not intended to give it to anyone but to hide it from his employer.
The grandfather also saw a suspicious car in the parking lot and wrote down the plate number, when the police arrived and approached the vehicle, two young me, 18 and 20, ran away into the woods. They were friends of the BK employee.
The police called them with the number they got from the employee’s phone and told them that if they do not show up immediately, they will impound the vehicle and press charges against them. They showed up and were taken into custody. The three friends face charges of drug possession.
Burger King released this statement: “This Burger King restaurant is owned and operated by a franchisee who enforces a zero-tolerance drug policy. The franchise management team is cooperating fully with police. BKC and the franchisee extend a sincere apology to the guests involved in this unfortunate incident.”
