McDonald's Employee Hides Pot Stash In Happy Meal Box, Gives Happy Meal To Child

“Daddy, I got two toys in my happy meal!”

We realize that you have to disguise your stash when you go to work, but hiding your pipe, marijuana and lighter in a happy meal box is a dangerous idea. Why?

You might hand your stash right out the drive through window. That’s what one McDonald’s employee in Ottawa, Illinois did, and as you might imagine, everyone—even the police chief — is laughing at him. The employee is a 17 year-old high school senior, he’s been arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. From FoxChicago:

“Police admit that many in the town find the incident… funny.
Police Chief: “I’d be rather surprised if at any time in the rest of my career I see something like this happen again.”

Oh, Illinois! We miss you and your perpetually stoned populace. —MEGHANN MARCO
