Unfortunately, even in many legal states across the US, most fast-food restaurants don’t accept cannabis in place of cash. One man in Taree, NSW, figured otherwise.
It’s late at night, nothing’s in the fridge, and nothing is still in the fridge 15 minutes later. What do you do? Fast food.
Most people would order in, but this man was clearly quite sensible and wanted it fresh, so he ordered an Uber to take him to his local restaurant.
He walked up to the counter, ordered everything his munchies desired, and then it was time to pay. In either a brief lapse of concentration or simply a bold statement, he placed his cash and weed on the counter and followed with:
How do you want me to pay, with the cash or the weed?
Cash was likely paid (even though weed would’ve been worth far more) as he was later found with 4 grams of cannabis in his possession after police caught up with him.
Hopefully one day soon, staff will simply say – “Sorry mate, due to company policy we cannot accept your weed in exchange for food.” – and that would be the end of it.
Instead, these 4 grams of cannabis has landed this man in court later this year.
If you or anyone you know has successfully paid for fast food with weed in Australia, please reach out to us. We’d love to tell your story, anonymously of course.
