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.

Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
