Man claims McDonald’s served him tea spiked with weed

A South Carolina McDonald’s is under investigation after a customer claimed he was served sweet tea with marijuana in it.

Hilton Head resident Parrish Brown told sheriff’s officials he ordered “sweet tea with light ice and extra lemon.” And that’s exactly what he thought he’d received — until he realized he was “high as a kite” halfway through drinking it, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office report.

Prompted by his euphoric state, Brown says he looked inside the cup and found three small baggies of weed. When filing his complaint, Brown told authorities he now believes “extra lemon” is code for marijuana at the fast food eatery.

If what Brown says is true, the McDonald’s in question will likely start doing brisk business. Brown says despite the supplement, he paid regular price for the tea. The sheriff’s office is investigating his claim.
