Man Tries to Pay For McDonald's Meal With Pot

Man Tries to Pay For McDonald's Meal With Pot

The economic downturn has forced many people to save money on food in unconventional ways, from reinventing leftovers to organizing food swaps. However, one man may have crossed the line when it comes to creativity.

Shawn Pannullo was arrested in Vero Beach, FL, for trying to pay for his McDonald's meal with pot. The incident occurred just after midnight, at which time a McDonald's cashier called 911. Pannullo, 27, was charged with possession of cannabis and posted $500 bail. A report didn't disclose whether he ultimately paid for the meal using something other than marijuana.

While possession of cannabis is obviously a crime, I must admit I find this story entertaining. The report also failed to list what Pannullo ordered at McDonald's. I'm guessing . . . three of everything?

Hey man, if you really got the munchies, you gotta do what you gotta do. LOL. Anyway, I would have told him I needed cash, and sent him on his way. I wouldn't have called the cops on him!

The cashier called 911??? For pot really?? I would have just turned him away it's not like he was trying to hold him up or something. Sheesh over-react much. But it is a funny story. What a doofus.

hmm...economic crisis? no money? let's buy pot instead? Somebody needs to get their priorities in order. If you don't have money for munchies dont buy pot (or buy less pot). (oh how do you get all those funny little smiley faces??)
