McDonald’s Billboard Makes Weed Joke, But Big Bosses Don’t See The Funny Side


A billboard for McDonalds has cracked a stoner joke but the big bosses have failed to see the funny side.

The Maccy’s franchise put up the billboard on the New Mexico/Colorado border to advertise its breakfast burritos.

Recreational marijuana use is legal in Colorado so it would seem the billboard is just fitting in with local crowds.

The billboard reads:

Usually, when you roll something this good, it’s illegal!

Well, not in Colorado…


After one driver spotted the billboard and posted a photo of it online, it quickly went viral. And while the internet enjoyed the joke, but it’s safe to say corporate have not.

A McDonald’s representative told the Huffington Post:

This local franchise billboard does not meet our standards and is being taken down.

A sign of the times?
