McDonald’s Colorado turns stores to burger “joints”
Have you seen “Harold and Kumar”? It is an amusing, hilarous comedy movie about two potheads going through a series of unfortunate events just to satisfy their cravings for that delicious, juicy White Castle burger and fries.
Apparently, McDonald’s Colorado got the inspiration from the movie and capitalized on marijuana users, sans the hassle of misfortunes along the way.
Beating White Castle to the idea, McDonald’s is now opening the pioneering marijuana smoking sections in some 15 stores across the state. The idea is to replace Play Place by converting them to marijuana-friendly zones.
The trailblazing “smoking pods” will allow marijuana users to smoke their joints, pipes and bongs. The device has its own vent, filtering away smoke and keeping non-users “safe”.
At present, there are two McDonald’s restaurants already offering such smoking pod, while the remaining 13 is expected to be completed by end of the year.
Meanwhile, McDonald’s Colorado clarified that only marijuana is allowed in the pods, adding that tobacco and cigarettes are still banned in the stores.
