Man tries to buy M&Ms with pot; Fake Hershey's "Pot" Candy

When you gotta have your M&Ms, you gotta have your M&Ms...from the Chicago Tribune:

A New Zealand man who offered to pay with marijuana when he did not have enough money for a snack was caught by a police officer who overheard his unusual proposal, a news report said Tuesday.

Wade Churchward, 28, went to a service station on March 22 in the capital, Wellington, where he picked up two packets of M&M's candy and some potato chips, the Dominion Post newspaper reported.

But when he reached the cashier, he realized he didn't have enough money and instead offered a container with 0.042 ounces of marijuana and a pipe for smoking it, the report said.

Churchward failed to notice a patrol car outside and a police officer standing behind him in line -- who promptly arrested him.

Which brings us to an older story I stumbled upon in looking into the story above from ABC News - fake Hershey's candy with a definitive marijuana theme.


No surprise, Hershey is suing the California marijuana dealer who did this, for ripping off the company's name and using it to sell marijuana-laced knockoffs. Our favorite? Tough call, but we're going with Keef-Kat.
