Would You Like Some Pot With Your Happy Meal

Have you read about this idiot in Ottawa, Illinois who left his weed, lighter and a pipe in a Happy Meal box. Well, as it turns out an 8-year-old little girl finds this stuff along with her Shriek toy, in her Happy Meal. It seems the little girl was somewhat delighted at the find. Not because she wanted to get high with her friends later, but because she thought she had gotten some extra prizes in the Happy Meal. This wasn’t a marijuana cigarette, this was a bag of weed. The parents of the little girl went immediately to the police.

The police was able to determine that the marijuana and drug paraphernalia belong to a 17-year-old employee of the McDonalds the parents had gotten the Happy Meal from. This dummy confesses that he had come to work and forgot he had his marijuana and pipe in his pocket, so he decided to hide the bag of weed, the lighter and the pipe in a Happy Meal box until he could get it at the end of his shift. Unfortunately for him he left the box where another employee could get it and put the child's food and toy in it. The employee never noticed the drug items in it.

Needless to say the 17-year-old was fired and is now facing charges of possession of marijuana and of drug paraphernalia.

The thing is, it seems to me that people just don’t think things out now a days. First of all at 17 this kid should be smoking pot or doings drugs anyway. It’s apparent he isn’t a bright kid, so he should be concentrating a lot on his schoolwork. Second, why would you put your illegal items in a place and in something that is accessible to other people? It doesn’t make since. Leave it in a box outside under the thrash container or under a bush, not inside where anybody can get at it.

Like I said the kid shouldn’t have had the stuff in the first place. But if you’re going to have it, be smart enough not to get caught with it. That says it all.
