Pregnant Woman Orders McDouble Gets McMaryJane Instead


The latest chronicle in the “weird things found in our food” saga comes from Iowa where a pregnant woman allegedly found pot in her McDouble.

Probably fulfilling a pregnancy craving, the woman and her fiancé ordered their food as normal from the drive thru, but a few bites into her McDouble she realized one of the toppings didn’t belong. The couple is claiming the patty was tainted with marijuana but the local police won’t know for at least a month until the test results are completed.

During the investigation police did find one McDonald’s employee who was in possession of drug paraphernalia but no one has officially been charged yet. As to why someone would waste their stash on some random customer’s burger, who knows.

Whether it’s a crime or a prank we have to wonder how Mickey D’s didn’t think of this before, seems like a good way to get customers to come back with the munchies and order all the things…just kidding.

Sit Down & Shut Up: Marijuana-Infused ‘Nugtella’ Exists


I bet whoever came up with the idea of Nugtella is pretty damn pleased with themselves right about now. As well they should. This actual pot-friendly item can be purchased at select dispensaries in California and are not available online.

The Sugarleaf-branded product comes from Organicares, makers of “medical edibles” and apparently all things brilliant. The hazlenut spread infuses 320 mg of hash oil, making for a particularly enjoyable treat. This discovery follows the recent announcement that an Official Nutella Cookbook will roll out come August 20th, making for a perfect opportunity to create incredible and no doubt mind-blowing chocolate desserts. Think “Nugtella” macaroons, chewy brownies and cheesecakes. Yes, MJ in your cheesecake.

You’re welcome world.

Burger King Employee Hides Marijuana and Pipe in Kids Meal, Hilarity Ensues


Here’s a life lesson: Don’t hide drug paraphernalia in your fast food, folks. It’s like hiding it in a six pack of beer in a frat house fridge, aka WORST HIDING SPOT EVAR.

Unfortunately, this particular Burger King employee didn’t get the memo.

After taking enjoying a day at Splash Universe water park, a Michigan customer found a packed marijuana pipe in his 4-year-old grandson’s Burger King Kids Meal purchased at a location in Dundee, Michigan. Needless to say, grandpa was not amused and notified the police.

“He handed the … meal … to his 4-year-old grandson, and when they opened it up they found a loaded marijuana pipe inside,” stated Dundee Police Chief David Uhl.

Determined to find the culprit behind the matter, the customer scribbled down the license plate of a car full of “suspicious” kids he spotted outside the restaurant he saw a Burger King employee running to. As an officer was interviewing the employee, he noticed the suspect’s cell phone laying nearby. The two friends in the car outside called the cell hoping to warn the suspect of the police and unknowingly informed the officer that, “We’re across the street.”

When the officer went into the parking lot, the two ditched their car and ran into the woods. After the officer called them on their cell phone and threatened to arrest the two and tow their car, they emerged from the woods. Hashish and other drug paraphernalia were discovered inside the car; the Burger King employee admitted to police that the pipe was his and that he brought the pot to work that night.

All three involved, ages 18 to 20, were cited for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Of course, in a statement emailed to Huffpo, a Burger King spokesperson would like everyone to know that customer safety is a “top priority” and that “[this] Burger King restaurant is owned and operated by a franchisee who enforces a zero-tolerance drug policy.”

Luckily, no one was harmed by the loaded pipe.

Weed Wine Exists, Getting Crossfaded Now Easier than Ever


As anyone whose done their stint in college knows, weed does funny things when paired with alcohol. For those of you who are fans of this glorious feeling, good news: Weed wine exists.

Although, you can’t just chug any boozy pot, according to journalist Bonnie Collins at VICE. Red wine laced with marijuana will make even your 21st birthday hangover pale in comparison, while white wine will give you a more “balanced” flavor and more pleasant effect.

Collins notes that some of the most successful producers — flower children of the ’70s out in California — create a “tincture” by soaking nuggets in Everclear (yowza!) to extract the THC. The liquid is then added to wine in the throes of fermentation. The ABV (alcohol by volume) can jump as high as 12 percent, making for an especially potent drink when paired with marijuana. Unfortunately, it’s illegal to produce weed-laced wine, so you won’t find it in the liquor aisle. If you do happen upon it though, we know some willing taste testers.

Apparently, Pot is Bad For Kids; Government Calls for Childproof Pot Brownies


A kid’s life is hard nowadays. Sometimes, he has to use a desktop computer instead of his second generation iPad to search Wikipedia for the answers to his homework questions. Sometimes, he searches all 3000 available cable channels, and the only thing on is that vintage old people show, Boy Meets World. And sometimes, the stash of brownies he happened upon are laced with marijuana. All he wanted was a snack!

While the former two issues can be counted off as first world problems, the third is apparently a legitimate medical concern in states where laws against THC have been relaxed. See, for the most part, kids know not to go in medicine cabinets. Even if their parents haven’t told them a hundred and one times not to go in there, many medicine cabinets are child-proof, and all medicine bottles are. Unfortunately, it’s real difficult to childproof those marijuana edibles, especially when they look like cookies. If there is an opposite of childproofing, this is it.

Dr. George Sam Wang of Children’s Hospital Colorado started researching pint-sized cases of pot intoxication after having seen an increase in said cases over the last few years. Unsurprisingly, these occurrences began to crop up more frequently after Colorado changed its marijuana laws back in 2009. Since then, 14 children, all under the age of 12, had been admitted to the hospital where Wang works for ingestion of marijuana. Of these 14, eight had consumed medical marijuana (as opposed to the street drugs), and seven had gotten it from an edible. Two ended up in intensive care.


This is crazy depressing, but not necessarily surprising. We all know kids ain’t nothing but smaller versions of us, and with pot having increased in potency in the last several years, the effect it’d have on tinier systems is cause for concern.

Enter Michael Kosnett, a really cool dude. He’s also a medical toxicologist and associate clinical professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and he and Wang have been working up an idea with Colorado policymakers. Get this: Childproof your pot brownies. At least the ones that are bought and sold on the market. Like grabbing Tylenol off the shelf and knowing you’ll have to perform some level of contortion to open it, heading into your pot shop will now mean getting your pot cookies in a cage. Or at least, according to the new signature by Colorado’s governor (which went into affect on June 1st), “child-resistant packaging” means only 20 percent of 4-5 year olds can open it in around ten minutes. Plenty of time for a parent to walk in and lie about why the brownies in the back of the freezer are only for grown-ups.

That’s One Pot Tamale – And This California Dispensary Is Giving It Away For Free


You should totally take a hit of this tamale.

That’s what they’re saying at the ABC Cooperative, a medical marijuana dispensary in Garden Grove, Calif., where every Friday is “free tamale day.” At least, that’s what I’m guessing they’re saying. I for one have never stepped foot in a marijuana dispensary and would never ever associate with anyone who would frequent such an abominable institution.

Supposing I did though, I’d imagine the prospect of getting free Pineapple Pot flavored tamales every Friday would be pretty damn exciting.

Made off-site, the tamales were first introduced by the company due to high customer demand and are available only to those with medical marijuana cards – along with the regular, non-medicated Chicken, Cheese and Pork flavors, which I’m assuming are available to anyone.

Did I mention they’re free?

For Future Reference, Denny’s Doesn’t Accept Marijuana as a Form of Payment

It’s pretty fair to assume a healthy amount of folks eating at Denny’s after midnight have consumed a fair amount of alcohol or marijuana, but let us make this clear, it’s not kosher to offer up a bag of pot as a form of payment. Regardless of how awesome it may sound at the time.

The incident in question involves a Niagara Falls man ordering a take-out dinner from a Denny’s restaurant shortly after 2 a.m. Apparently, he tried to pay for his $9.91 worth of food with $1 and a bit of pot.

Once the cashier refused the transaction, the man tried to sell the pot to other customers in the restaurant, according to police. What an entrepreneur!

During the ordeal, an employee at the restaurant recognized the pot peddler and gave his name to police. Authorities reported that he wasn’t home when officers arrived later in the day.

An investigation is continuing — no word on whether the guy got to enjoy his Denny’s meal or not that night.


Free Hashish at a New Oregon Pot Eatery

Earth Dragon Edibles Restaurant and Lounge is not the first of its kind in the state, but it’s definitely making headlines. Owners, Kevin Wallace and Michael Shea are actively working to keep their pot eatery up and running!

Restaurants that specialize in marijuana infused foods are slow to emerge despite its appeal due to heavy regulation. However, Wallace and Shea are fighting the man by working around the system! Since it’s “not a crime to share medicine,” offering “free” hashish with orders of stir-fry to cardholders allows these law abiding owners to make a living doing what they love. Well played guys!
