Sonic Is Begging Customers to Stop Smoking Weed In Drive-Thru

The days of consuming cannabis in the Sonic drive-thru are officially over.

Sonic Is Begging Customers to Stop Smoking Weed In Drive-Thru

This week, the fast food restaurant Sonic is begging customers to stop smoking weed in the drive-thru. This comes after the Mississippi Sonic reported an epidemic of stoned drivers. Here’s the story.

The Restaurant In Question

A Mississippi-based Sonic reported that two weeks ago a drive-thru customer rolled down their window to order food, and blew smoke into an employee’s face. This was the last straw for Sonic employees, sick of their stoned clientele.

Shortly after the smoking blowing incident, manager Yasman Freeman put a sign in the window of the Gulfport restaurant.

According to The Sun Herald, the sign reads: “If you are smoking weed in the drive-thru you will not be served! Please show some common courtesy and smoke and air out before pulling up to order.”

Freeman explains that the smoke-blowing incident prompted the sign installation, but this has been a longtime problem. Employees were exasperated by the sheer volume of marijuana they were smelling as customers pulled up for a bacon melt cheeseburger.

How Has This Affected The 420-Friendly?

According to the manager of the Sonic restaurant in question, employees are reportedly smelling less ganja than ever before. This may have less to do with the sign than the pictures Sonic security cameras are taking of smoking customers.

A Brief History of Marijuana and the Drive-Thru

Nothing makes you want a burger and fries more than a little Mary J. And sometimes, there’s no better place to go for weed than the drive-thru. Last year, a New Hampshire Burger King employee was caught selling weed at the drive-thru.

Local police arrested 20-Year-Old Garret Norris and his shift manager, Meagan Dearborn, for their marijuana operation. According to Epping, New Hampshire Police Chief Mike Wallace, customers would order a ‘Nasty Boy’ with extra crispy fries and receive a very special order.

Cases of the opposite have even been reported. Two employees at a Washington State drive-thru accepted dabs in exchange for fast food. Jonah Tacoma, who offered the Frugals employees dabs as payment for a burger and fries, videotaped the whole thing. Dabstars then used the video to promoted legalization.

Some marijuana-friendly states are taking the marijuana-fast food marriage to the next level with the medical marijuana drive-thru. Last year, Sun City, Arizona opened All Greens Dispensary. It’s located at the intersection of Bell Road and 99th Avenue.

The medical marijuana drive-thru better caters to patients who are elderly or disabled. It’s convenient, and also safer, according to All Greens Dispensary CEO Anthony Harrington.

Final Hit: Sonic Is Begging Customers to Stop Smoking Weed In Drive-Thru

No one is surprised that Sonic has some super stoned customers. While you can’t really top fast food while high, and a drive-thru is pretty convenient, let’s hope that Sonic customers find a safer way to indulge. And maybe a more considerate way: Not everyone wants smoke blown in their face.

One thing’s for sure: If Sonic restaurants start discriminating against the stoned, they’re going to cut into their own margins. McDonalds and Taco Bell are already more popular with weed smokers.

    I understand how it may fee like discrimination, but here’s a thought – how would you feel if someone came up to you & blew cigarette smoke in your face???
    The only way to prove you’re a responsible pot smoker is to tell those morons to stop giving tokers a bad name. My pot smoking friends Down Under would never be that disrespectful to anyone which is why their non toking friends have a great deal of respect for them.Vo

      I agree wholeheartedly. All these negative comments are so wrong. I remember a time when you didn’t want people, even your friends to smell it and want to get into your tash! You wanted to keep it for yourself.

      No excuse for rude behavior. Pot smokers already have a bad name, why justify it and give credibility to the critics & haters.

      Exactly! Cigarettes, cigars, weed, whatever, NO ONE wants smoke blown in their faces. I open my sunroof before i get to the window when I’m smoking a cigarette so the smoke goes up and out.t instead of our my window into the drive thru window.

    Sonic’s food used to be good, but then they started cutting corners on everything and selecting cheaper products to sell for a higher price. Now this? You must want to close. Filming people while smoking to use against them? Don’t get your Sonic shot up for backing a drama causing car hop with nothing going on in their lives but to bitch about anything they can. Those car hops acting Boujee and like they’re not single Mom failures sucking dick for meth after work, or on the way to being that.

    You would have to be high to eat that crap. Sonic started in my home state. At one time it was awesome but greed has ruined their food and their attitude.

    Better idea: SONIC needs to obtain the plate number, contact the police, and stall to give the police time to arrive so that they can arrest the idiots that think that it’s ok to drive under the influence.

    I’m all for smoking weed – RESPONSIBLY: Don’t drink and drive & don’t get high and drive. Anyone that drives high is f-ing stupid !!!
