HOAX ALERT: This story has been officially documented as a hoax.
Citizens in Colorado recently incorporated the Colonel into their munchies menu.
Since retail sales in Colorado began a little over a year a ago, the lucrative marijuana business in Colorado has apparently caught the all seeing eye of high level executives at Kentucky Fried Chicken, wanting to get a piece of that "pot" pie.
According to reports, the corporation thought it was brilliant idea to combine marijuana with their legendary fried chicken menu, and were approved early last month for a Marijuana Retail Recreational Occupational Business License from state authorities.
In a statement from KFC spokesperson William Rausch to the Racket Report
, "in order to be successful, a deep understanding of the market is critical to success. It's all about evolution and we are ready to serve the needs of the people of Colorado."
What this means is that Coloradans with a valid I.D. and are over the age of 21, will now able to legally purchase at least an ounce of marijuana at a time within franchise KFC establishments, while out-of-towners will be held to a quarter ounce.
Along with premium grade cannabis buds, the franchise will also be selling edibles with names like Bong Time Biscuits, Smashed Potatoes, and Macaroni Munchies, all made with signature marijuana infused butter.
Nearly half of the 100 KFC franchises in Colorado have already added the "marijuana" option to their menu with all expected to convert by March of 2016.
No mention has been made by KFC executives thus far, concerning the shortage of chickens that may occur, from combining marijuana with hungry Coloradans and KFC, or whether smoking paraphernalia such as glass pipes
, rolling papers, and other smoke accessories will also be sold their premises, but we'll keep you updated as this phenomena unfolds.
