Iowa couple claims to have discovered marijuana between two patties of a McDonald's cheeseburger

Iowa Couple Says It Found Weed Hidden In McDonald's Cheeseburger

Hold the pickles and add the pot. Police in Iowa are investigating a report of what might have been marijuana in a couple's McDonald's hamburger last month.

According to WJXT, the couple ordered the McDoubles from a drive-thru in Ottumwa, Iowa, on April 26, but upon biting into them, thought they tasted off. That's when they opened them up and found what appeared to be pot sprinkled into the cheese between the two patties.

The couple informed the manager, who informed police.

The Des Moines Register spoke with Police Lt. Jason Bell, and he confirmed the substance "appears to be consistent with marijuana."

Investigators will know more when test results come back, but they could be waiting up to two months for the lab's answer.

The Ottumwa Post identified the woman as 23-year-old Brittany Songer, who was six weeks pregnant when she took a bite of the burger.

She told the Post, "Once I opened those burgers, you couldn't smell McDonald's anymore. You could only smell the illegal drugs that were on it."

Police did say one employee was found with some drug paraphernalia -- but didn't provide details.

The couple told local media they might sue if the burgers test positive for drugs.

As of Wednesday, the Iowa McDonalds in question remains open.

Right. What I smell here is someone who wants their 15 minutes of fame and nothing more. Drive thru....put something into their burger and then claim foul. Just another pair of idiots looking to sue and make some money. Probably can't afford that baby they're expecting so they hope to have McDoanld's pay for it.

Probably the only thing that would help me eat one of those gross disgusting blobs of fat. Can't believe they would complain about it. If they managed to finish it, just think how great dessert would have been.

With as much grease and pepper is on a double cheese to give it 'flavor' I'm inclined to wonder how in the world this couple could taste any pot that might have been on it. No one's going to randomly hand out that much pot to a person they don't even know at a restaurant. I could see a dealer doing something weird (I actually knew a dealer who put crack in the coffee at the motel he lived in, many years ago) but not just some random cook who has no interaction with the people.

Weed stinks like you wouldn't believe, I was in a Home Depot, you could smell these two food 20 feet away. They went up to ask a question of one of the guys at the enterence, they were making faces and waving their hands after they walked away. And some people think it's a funny thing to do, even worse they put other body fluids in the food.

by the way she's 23 and pregnant. I have no doubt in my mind that it was a scheme thought up by a pregnant 23 year old.
