Four-Year-Old Finds Marijuana Pipe in Burger King Kids Meal

by at . Comments

A Michigan Burger King franchise apparently feels that when it comes to its slogan "Have It Your Way," the way four-year-olds want it is really baked.

A family found a marijuana pipe in their four-year-old's kid's meal box, according to reports. Instead of a Jungle Book toy, they got a glass bowl.

The boy's grandpa went to the Dundee, Mich., restaurant to pick up his burger, then discovered that fries weren't the only item it came with on the side.

Dundee Police Chief David Uhl said the pipe was full, too:

"He handed the kid's meal that he had gotten at Burger King to his 4-year-old grandson and when they opened it up they found a loaded marijuana pipe."

The boy's parents were "on top of it," he said, and removed the piece, which a 23-year-old employee hid in the meal box earlier while he was at work.

It was then inadvertently filled with food and given to the young customer, and the employee was charged with drug and paraphernalia possession.

This gets stranger still. After making the discovery, grandfather noted a "suspicious" car in the parking lot and wrote down the license plate number.

The kids in the car, 18 and 20, turned out to be friends of the BK employee who attempted to warn him when cops were called in to handle the matter.

They were arrested and charged with drug possession as well.

Burger King said in a statement: "This Burger King restaurant is owned and operated by a franchisee who enforces a zero-tolerance drug policy."

"The franchise management team is cooperating fully with [police]. BK and the franchisee extend a sincere apology to the guests involved in this incident."

Silver lining for BK? They're far from alone in this regard:
