Jack in the Box partners with Merry Jane for an official munchies meal
Jack in the Box (and other fast food restaurants) have always flirted with stoners via their menus -- we're Elegant, sure, but how can you turn down a Crunchwrap at 1 AM after a serious late night session, right? Until now, however, the overtures have been more subtle than anything else. Jack in the Box has offered a munchie meal from 9 PM on, and while anyone with half a brain might look at that and say it's mean for partiers and stoners, the chain has never really made it official.
Until now, anyway. Marijuana is going recreational in California on January 1, and with legal weed comes fast food partnerships, apparently. Jack in the Box has teamed up with cannabis brand Merry Jane to create the Merry Munchie meal, an officially cannabis-branded version of the late night box of bites. The box features a serving of half fries half onion rings, two tacos, five mini churros, three chicken strips and a drink, all for the on-brand price of $4.20. So yes, the box is still bring-your-own-pot, but it's quite a hookup if you want a lot of terrible food to eat. The meal will be offered at select locations in Long Beach ("Snoop Dogg's hometown," according to the notice), and may presumably go elsewhere, depending on popularity.
Real talk: there are plenty of better things for you to eat while high, and as a site about being an Elegant Stoner, we'd advocate, you know, cooking up some late-night pancakes or pasta if you're really craving some calories you'll probably regret eating in the morning. Still, it's cool to see a major fast food brand embracing cannabis. Presumably we'll see more mainstream acceptance like this as cannabis continues to go legal in more states around the US.
