Hold The Onions, Add Marijuana? Man Claims McDonald’s Burger Came Topped With Weed

When ordering at the McDonald’s drive-thru one has to consider the chances of their order coming out wrong. But an Iowa couple says they got something in their hamburger they would have never expected: marijuana.

Local police in an Iowa town tell KCCI (warning: the link has video that autoplays) that a man alleges a hamburger he ordered at the local McDonald’s for his pregnant fiancé came topped with pieces of marijuana.

“I’ve seen a lot of stuff, but never something like this,” a lieutenant with the police department says. “I really haven’t had a lot of investigations where I’ve focused so much on cheeseburgers.”

A sample of the substance was sent to the Division of Criminal Investigation for analysis, but results won’t be known for at least a month.

In the meantime, police aren’t taking the report lightly; everyone from the restaurant’s employees to the couple who reported the incident are being investigated.

“We are exploring all possibilities at this point, and that factor is one thing we’re considering with the investigation,” police officials tells KCCI. “It’s more of a serious allegation against a business in the community. In any business, we want to make sure we come to the best possible conclusion on where it originated from.”

While police did find drug paraphernalia on an employee at the fast food chain, they say no one has been charged in the case.
