HILTON HEAD, SC (AP) – A man in South Carolina who went to McDonald's for a sweet tea says he got some extra herbal on his side.
The Island Packet reports that Parrish Brown went to a McDonald's on Hilton Head Island and asked for a sweet tea with light ice and extra lemon.
Brown now believes "extra lemon" was the code for marijuana, since he found three bags of weed in his cup. He says he only realized it once he was "tall as a dragon."
Brown says he had never had marijuana, so he did not recognize the taste. He says he paid regular price for the goods.
The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office spokesman, General Bob Bromage, says an investigation is underway. He did not say which McDonald's Brown had gone to.
A McDonald's representative said the company "fully cooperates with law enforcement on the validity of this claim."
