Woman Gets A Special Surprise With Her Sonic Fries

  1. Rob Cypher
    A woman who ordered from a Sonic fast food chain in Frederick, Maryland discovered more than just her child’s chicken fingers and fries when she reached into the bag.

    The woman, 35-year-old Carla McFarland, reported finding a plastic baggie containing marijuana alongside the food she had purchased for herself and her two children, ages 6 and 8.

    “I just kind of sat there in my car in shock. I kept thinking, what if my kids had eaten it?” said McFarland, according to the Frederick News Post.

    After making the discovery, McFarland notified the manager of the Sonic restaurant. An employee reportedly admitted that the bag had likely fallen from her apron, and she was subsequently fired from the franchise. The Sonic location also made McFarland a new batch of food and gave it to her without charge.

    McFarland also claims that the response to her discovery has been met with laughter and amusement from friends, as she posted about the incident on Facebook.

    “I think that’s why everyone thinks it’s so funny, because it’s marijuana and it’s going to be legalized. It could have been crack. It could have been cocaine in that little baggie,” said McFarland.

    It wasn’t crack cocaine, though, and the marijuana laws in Maryland are certainly changing. According to WUSA9, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley signed two marijuana bills into law in April.

    SB 364 calls for the decriminalization of possession of less than 10 grams of marijuana, punishable only by a fine of up to $100 for first-time offenders. HB 881 also legalizes medical marijuana in the state, making Marlyand the 21st state to adopt such a policy.

    Still, marijuana remains criminalized in the state, and the incident at the Sonic restaurant is under investigation by the Frederick County Sheriff’s office. Charges have not yet been filed against the employee.

    From which we learn the following:

    Drugs have nothing to do in your working clothes.

    She should sue Sonic, because it's the american way And i have no petty for a giant conglomerate that barely contributes anything positive to the world.

    And the kid should be fired and possibly be forced into drug counseling for being .... Probably high enough, to accidentally put your weed bag into a happy meal.

    I'm not anti -marijuana. but at the end of the day, The person should be held responsible for what he did. Weed is a drug , And on a conceptual level if any person gave my kid a drug in my happy meal i would be extremely upset. Whether it was aspirin, molly, or weed.

    Just a total disregard for human life, and bad responsibility.

    Personally I'd be happy as a pig in shit if I found free drugs in my $5 bag of fast food... but putting her into drug counseling? That's a bit extreme.

    But yea sue the fuck out of Sonic! probably still won't be enough to put her kids through college...
  4. Openmymind
    Lol true story about college.

    I'd be happy as well. But at the end of the day this is the definition of Not being able to respect the herb properly.

    Drug counseling might be harsh , but he is not a functioning user. he's making things worse for the state of legalization and the future of the herb.

    Of course mistakes happen though, I just think drug counseling would benefit the indiviual personally.

    As a manager I couldn't consider keeping her as an employee. if she can't do that right, what else is she not doing right?

    Liability, lawsuits, and blunders come from negligent employees.

    Wasn't it punishment enough that She lost her weed?

    From a business point off view I understand that she had to lose her job, but come on, drug counseling? I think she probably got shit on enough. People do make mistakes , but come on people it was a little bag o weed.

    I thought it was punishment enuff she lost her damn bag of weed! Must have been good stash if you that high you don't notice a bag of weed falls from yer apron INTO a bag of food... Seriously how can that even happen...
  7. RoboCodeine7610
    Isn't it a bit suspicious that now that cannabis has been regulated in a couple states stories are popping up all over the place about people finding weed in their burgers? I'm highly skeptical of 99% of these claims.

    It was a little bag of weed...that made its way into children's food. If this person is not responsible enough to know not to take drugs into work, let alone store it someplace where it can fall into the hands of children, then yes, they need some kind of counseling. It's not as if going to some drug counseling classes is all that severe anyway, and it might actually help them remember to be more responsible.
  9. Name goes here
    I literally ate there last week passing through. I was given no free weed with my happy meal.

    It amazes me the level of stupid with some people. Why would you carry drugs in a pocket while working? If your smoking on the job, hide your stash.
  10. Ospreius
    Even though both sides have made valid arguments, I find it very surprising how divided we are over this. Perhaps I'm stuck in a G.C. forum mindset.... lol

    Personally, if I bring drugs to work for whatever rare reason/occasion, I keep them with all the rest of my stuff, which is in my locker. Not in an open-top pocket of my clothing.
  11. Openmymind
    I feel like if people are going to use drugs, they should be able to handle themselves especially in a work setting.

    It's gonna be hard for me to agree with anyone who accidentally puts their marijuana into the food they sell.

    What if that person was searched by the police , didn't know it was in there, and got in major legal trouble?

    That is why i think this person needs counseling . He put that person at risk, and he put drugs in a kids meal.

    I don't hate weed either. I hate reading stories like this, it brings the weed community two steps backwards when things like this happen.
