“I’ll have a Big Mac Meal and a joint, please.”
Posted on October 25 2015
Well no, you won’t. At least not in the foreseeable future. Sorry.
I’ve not been to McDonalds for a bout ten years, at least. If I go to a Burger Chain I’d definitely go Five Guys or In’N’Out. McDonalds would not make it into my top ten list. Then I read an article on a site called Now8News (where the picture is from) and I very briefly considered heading out for a Big Mac. Or maybe a Sausage and Egg McMuffin.
The site introduced the following information:
"5 Colorado McDonald franchises have announced that they are converting their McDonald’s Play Place areas into marijuana friendly smoking areas. Each facility will consist of 15 smoking pods in which customers can smoke a joint, bong, or pipe without being harassed or bothered by people who are offended by it.
Each pod not only contains the marijuana smoke within it’s small space, but also it repels the smell of the marijuana through a ventilation tube above the pod. So, although the doors are sealed in this previous “Play Place” location, the smell of marijuana will not seep into the main restaurant as people enter and exit the facility.
Two restaurants in Denver, Colorado have successfully converted the play areas into a marijuana smoking section, with the other 13 franchises to complete renovations by the end of 2015. As for now, McDonald’s will not be getting into the sale of marijuana or marijuana edibles. However, they do welcome their patrons to have a smoke before ordering.”
Amazing, right? Well yes, it would be if it were true. Unfortunately this is all complete bullshit, delivered in a deadpan way. Incredibly it made its way as actual news onto some “actual news” sites. Still, good work whoever wrote it. You had me dreaming about a Happy Meal. And that would be some happy fucking meal.
