South Carolina man says McDonald’s sweet tea came with weed inside
HILTON HEAD, South Carolina — A South Carolina man who went to McDonald’s for a sweet tea said he received a little extra herbal substance on the side.
The Island Packet reported that Parrish Brown went to a McDonald’s on Hilton Head Island and asked for a sweet tea with light ice and extra lemon.
Brown now believes “extra lemon” was code for marijuana, since he found three bags of weed in his cup. He said he only realized it once he was “high as a kite.”
Brown said he had never had marijuana, so he did not recognize the taste. He said he paid regular price for the items.
Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Maj. Bob Bromage says an investigation is ongoing. He did not specify which McDonald’s Brown had gone to.
A representative for McDonald’s said the company is “fully cooperating with law enforcement on the validity of this claim.” IB/JB
