Marijuana healthier than fast food?
Burger king usually offers of prizes, double burger offer, buy one get one free offer, and many other deals but this time burger king have presented a quite different offer to a 4 year old kid. It was a marijuana pipe and bud inside the burger king’s happy meal. The happy meal and pipe seem quite different things but it really happened in the Detroit branch of Burger King.
The story starts when a grandfather took his grandson to burger king in Detroit, which recently has moved its deal from Happy meals for High Meals. The grandfather ordered food including a Kids meal for his grandson. On opening upthe box, they found an unexpected surprise. Therewere a pipe and bud in a kid’s meal.
The family immediately informed police about the incident. Police officers responded and investigated the whole incident. After complete enquiry, it was revealed that 23 year old employee of burger king, put the pipe in box to hide it in working hours and he had no intention to give it to a customer, a little kid.
The employee was arrested with the other two men, not working in the restaurant, held responsible to be involved in the incident. Grandfather saw one of them running during rush in the parking lot. This moment made him suspicious and after checking police found Hashish and other drugs in the car. Three of them were arrested for having involved in an illegal crime.
Although it is a good attempt to stop drug addiction and its awareness in society but it seems miserable for those young men who get their job as an employee in any take away and finally lose it after being involved in any illegal activity. It definitely takes their 2-3 months wages or even more.
It seems justified that people in the car were arrested because of illegal drug possession, but it doesn’t seem rational that the employee was intended to educate youth on marijuana. Marijuana helps to cure many diseases. Its usage in this relevance is appreciable but police and other legal authorities are justified when they take action on spreading awareness of marijuana as a drug.
Fast food is, no doubt, dangerous for human health and it has bad effects in our routine works. Even then it is questionable that can marijuana, healthier than fast food, replace other fast food items available in different restaurants and takeaways. The advocates of this concept believe that marijuana could be replaced by fast food because fast food items are proving more damaging than marijuana intake. Fast food damages kids’ body machinery more quickly so advocates consider the intentions of Boulder King useful in this accordance. It is believed that the employee could use more good technique to spread his idea i.e. he could keep the pot in the kid’s meal box instead of putting a pipe and bud.
These diverse concepts are important to be considered by legal authorities on a rational basis so that future law could satisfy the interests of all.
