The 420-friendly term "munchies" just took on a whole new meaning.
Now, I'm not sure if this is a bad thing or a good thing, but it happened. An Ohio-based mom named Dezeray Risner is claiming that she found actual weed in her daughter's french fries purchased from Wendy's.
I guess it's safe to say Wendy partakes in the consumption of the ganja, am I right?!
All jokes aside, Risner realized that her 4-year-old daughter's french fries were paired with deep-fried marijuana after she complained that the fries "tasted funny and were yucky."
Risner posted photos of the fries to her Facebook page. Yikes.
The Ohio mom spoke to Fox 25, saying,
So I told her to spit it in my hand, (and) I just kind of reached my arm back. She did and when I looked at it, you could see it. It was chewed up with the French fries. There was the weed in there, the wrap that it goes in or whatever. I freaked out.
Yeah, I'd be pretty freaked out, too. No, seriously. I'm not just saying that.
I mean, who is Wendy to just load up my french fries with weed? That's totally uncalled for and whoever is responsible for attempting to offer a marijuana edibles menu at a major fast food franchise should be held accountable for their actions.
At the end of the day, a 4-year-old was the victim here -- and that's a very serious matter.
Risner took to Facebook to inform her friends about what had happened.
According to Fox News, Risner called the Wendy's where she had originally obtained the weed-covered french fries. A manager at the location stated that no one at their store had weed and basically dismissed the complaint.
That's when a concerned Risner called the police to report the bizarre incident. A police officer reportedly opened up the container with the french fries in it and was able to smell the aroma of marijuana emitting from the food.
The police department eventually made a visit to the Wendy's in question and spoke with a few staff members, including a shift manager and three employees. The report states that two employees had admitted to smoking weed.
However, when the restaurant was searched by authorities for the substance, nothing was found.
Despite the thorough investigation by police, Risner is still certain that someone's personal weed or "blunt" at Wendy's somehow made it into her daughter's meal. She added,
It was someone's personal blunt, likely stuffed near or on their persons and dropped into my daughter's food. The fries were not 'laced,' sprinkled with weed, or deep-fried with weed (that one alone sounds ridiculous).
Finally, after Risner's story made its rounds and gained traction on the Internet, Wendy's issued a statement regarding the deep-fried weed fries, saying,
Please know all of our customers as well as the quality and integrity of our food are a top priority at Wendy's and we are taking this very seriously.
Look, there's NOTHING good about a 4-year-old finding weed in her french fries, but I will say, at least she didn't find a fried rat head in her food like that one woman did at Popeyes!
