A Maryland woman found an extra dose of happy in her fast-food meal when she ordered a combo of chicken fingers and fries – and came away with a baggie of pot as well.

Carla McFarland says that she pulled out of the drive-thru at her local Sonic in Frederick and began to tuck into her meal when she saw the packet in her bag of fries – and immediately knew it wasn't the kind of spice she wanted in her life. She immediately stopped her kids from eating their meals before checking to see if they also had the bonus packets – which they didn't.

According to a manager, an employee admitted the marijuana was hers and said that it must have fallen from her apron – an offense that got her fired on the spot. McFarland got free replacement meals for her and her kids. (UPI)
