Police say a family found a pipe stuffed with marijuana inside a kids meal bought for a 4-year-old boy at a Burger King restaurant in southern Michigan.
According to CBS Detroit, the incident happened on Tuesday at the fast food restaurant when a family came for a bite after visiting a nearby water park.
Police reportedly said a man went into Burger King and bought a kids meal for his grandson but before giving it to the child he found the pipe in the box and notified police.
Dundee authorities report that a 23-year-old employee says he put the pipe in the box to hide it while he worked and he didn't mean to give it out.
Police arrested the employee and two other men ages 18 and 20 who do not work at the restaurant but were connected to the incident.
Formal drug possession charges are pending, according to the station.

A Drugmaker Bets on Marijuana to Treat Diabetes, Epilepsy, and More
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
Medicinal marijuana advocates contend that smoking pot helps relieve pain and alleviate nausea. British drug company GW Pharmaceuticals (GWP:LN) is betting that medicine made from cannabis can also treat maladies as diverse as diabetes, colitis, and epilepsy.
GW is the only pharma group in the world now selling a prescription medicine derived from marijuana plants, as opposed to synthetic equivalents. The drug, a nasal spray called Sativex, has been approved by regulators in eight countries—Italy, most recently—to treat spasms associated with multiple sclerosis. A request for U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval is pending.
Taking aim at a potentially much-bigger market, the company this year plans to launch second-stage clinical trials of a cannabis-based drug that has showed promise in treating Type 2 diabetes. The drug, with the tongue-twisting name of tetrahydrocannabivarin-9, improved patients’ production of insulin and helped lower blood-sugar levels between meals.
An estimated 371 million people worldwide suffer from Type 2 diabetes. Patients taking the cannabis-based drug “could potentially be controlled on oral therapy for a longer period of time and wouldn’t need to take injections,” says Mike Cawthorne, a GW consultant who is director of metabolic research at the University of Buckingham.

In honor of marijuana legalization in Washington state, local breweries Redhook and Hilliard's created the Joint Effort Hemp Ale. A session ale, the brew is is dry-hopped and made with hemp seeds.
While this may sound like a somewhat kooky concoction to some, the Joint Effort Hemp Ale is only one among many marijuana-inspired brews. Check out some other beers that pay homage to the drug (though, besides Joint Effort, there's no actual hemp in any of them):
