Florida Man Arrested for Trying to Buy Pot at Burger King Drive-Thru
Sure, Burger King probably makes tons of money from stoners. Who else is going to eat half that menu? Lets be honest, who do you think all those bizarre ads they ran for years were targeted at? But BK is not in the business of selling pot. Thirty-two-year-old Shawn Porter of Deltona, Florida found that out the hard way when he tried to order a "blunt and some herbs" at the drive-through.
Porter was obviously joking when he made the request, but the cashier decided to be a total narc about it. After smelling the stench of marijuana wafting from his car, the cashier jotted down Porter's license plate and then a supervisor called police.
We guess you really can't have it your way all the time at Burger King.
Police ran Porter's tag numbers through a database to find his home address, and when he returned an officer was waiting for him.
The officer searched Porter's car and found 28 grams of marijuana. Porter was arrested for drug possession.
