Weed is legal in Washington state, but it's still not an acceptable tender in trade for burgers and fries at a fast-food restaurant. Last April, internet weed fanboy Jonah Tacoma offered a hit of hash oil in trade for his meal to employees at a Tacoma, Washington, drive-through called Frugals. They went for the deal, lining up to hit Jonah Tacoma's bubbler and allegedly giving him his food for free. Jonah filmed the thing and posted it online, where the video promptly went viral. The fine people in Frugals management were not particularly pleased, and fired both employees shown leaning out of the drive-through window to rip a bowl.
"We were going through the drive-through and when we were done ordering, I offered to pay with a dab instead of cash," Tacoma explained to KOMO News yesterday. "She said, 'Yeah, sure.' We started filming when we pulled up … It was kind of just a funny thing that happened."
Frugals's big-wigs didn't find it all that funny. In a statement to KOMO News, the company's financial manager wrote that "Frugals has a zero tolerance drug policy in the workplace, and we in no way condone the type of conduct captured … The isolated actions of the two terminated employees do not in any way reflect the Frugals crew as a whole."
The real lesson here is that if you're going to smoke weed at your shitty restaurant job, stick to one-hitters in the walk-in freezer like your parents used to do. And keep the camera phones off.
