FREDERICK, Md. -

Carla McFarland and her two kids went to a Sonic in Frederick Wednesday afternoon hoping for a good meal and fun family time. But when the mother of two received her order, she got more than just the side of fries she asked for.

“I looked in and I saw this little bag in my fry container,” says McFarland.

The little bag she is referring to is this small baggie full of marijuana. Yup, she got pot in her French fries.

“I sort of kept looking at it, like is this really what I think it is,” says McFarland.

She added that at first, she was stunned and unsure what to do. Then she snapped a photo, asked for the manager and then called the cops. She says what bothers her most is that her kids were in the car and they could have accidentally eaten the drugs

A spokesperson for Sonic corporate headquarters emailed us this statement: "Management of this franchise-owned location immediately contacted the police when notified of this issue. They have cooperated fully with authorities. The employee involved is no longer associated with the company, and the franchisee is conducting an investigation to ensure the issue is fully resolved."

McFarland says that according to the store manager, a female employee immediately admitted the weed was hers and that it fell out of her apron, so the employee was fired on the spot.

Meanwhile, McFarland says police told her there wasn't enough pot to press charges.

    CHICAGO (AP) -- An anti-addiction drug used to fight the nation's heroin and painkiller abuse epidemics poses a threat to young children who accidentally swallow relatives' prescriptions, a federal study says.
