Today, the quick food dining establishment Sonic is begging clients to stop smoking weed in the drive-thru. This follows the Mississippi Sonic reported an epidemic of stoned drivers. Here’s the story.
The Restaurant In Concern
A Mississippi-based Sonic reported that two weeks ago a drive-thru customer rolled down their window to purchase food, and blew smoke into a worker’s face. This was the last straw for Sonic employees, fed up with their stoned clients.
Soon after the smoking blowing incident, manager Yasman Freeman put an indication in the window of the Gulfport dining establishment.
According to The Sun Herald, the sign reads: “If you are smoking weed in the drive-thru you will not be served! Please show some act of courtesy and smoke and air out prior to pulling up to order.”
Freeman describes that the smoke-blowing incident prompted the indication installation, however this has been a longtime problem. Staff members were annoyed by the sheer volume of cannabis they were smelling as consumers pulled up for a bacon melt cheeseburger.
