Florida Man Tried to Pay McDonald's with Marijuana

On Sunday morning Anthony Gallagher of Florida must have forgotten his wallet at home when he took a drive down to the local McDonald's to satiate his marijuana munchies.

After placing his order at the drive-thru Gallagher tried to trade a bag of weed for his meal—which the employee promptly refused. So Gallagher left the drive-thru only to return to the same McDonald's sometime later. However, we may never know if he intended to actually pay for his food with real money, as police had already been contacted and arrested Gallagher when he returned to the restaurant.

Gallagher reportedly told the officers that the whole thing was just a joke. But the police didn't find it funny, and Gallagher probably isn't laughing after after getting booked. Recreational cannabis remains illegal in Florida and Gallagher has found himself charged with drug possession and driving under the influence.

President Trump's 2020 budget request includes a loophole that would let Washington, DC finally open up dispensaries for recreational cannabis. Although DC voters passed a ballot initiative to legalize recreational cannabis back in 2014, Congress has used its power over the nation's capital to prevent it from selling cannabis for recreational use. Right now, local dispensaries can only sell medical marijuana to registered patients thanks to Congress, which controls spending in the District of Columbia.
