A 17-year-old employee of an Ottawa, Ill., McDonald's is out of work and facing drug charges after allegedly hiding marijuana and a lighter in the Happy Meal.</td>

Where can I find myself a Happy Meal like that? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Seriously, though, that was incredibly irresponsible of the employee to have drugs and drug paraphenalia at work with him. Not to mention dangerous- 8yos should not have lighters and we don't know if this particular child was allergic to MJ. I'm all for the legalization of marijuana but not for its distribution to 8yos without parental consent.<br><br>
IMO, the 17yo <b>SHOULD BE</b> out of work and facing drug charges- he or she was well aware of the law and chose to ignore the law anyway.

it is actually a pretty brilliant business strategy-though I'm not sure that even a bad case of the munchies could make me eat mcdonald's.

Sigh, why is everyone so sue happy?<br><br>
Some free coupons for their trouble or something should be enough. We don't need to sue over EVERYTHING. And it is not they are going to sue the kid who did this, they are going to sue the McD. corp with it's big pockets.

what would be the purpose of suing? There was no harm done, no one was hurt. I might ask for some gift certificates, which i am sure they would be willing to give.<br><br>
Problem is so many people sue in this day and age, and so many people get outrageous settlements for the tiniest things, and the people who sue because of great loss or injury, get the shaft.

im actually ok with pretty much anyone suing mcdonald's for pretty much any reason. it is too bad that rainforests can't generally hire lawyers.

Man I would have taken it home (for, um, safety, confiscation and all that, ya know) then came into the store the next day and announced I found a bag and turned it into the police...see which employee turned white. But I'm rather mean <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">: How dumb do you have to be to BRING DRUGS TO WORK, and then hide them into something that is given to the CUSTOMERS. Duh!
