Carl’s Jr. will serve a weed burger on 4/20; Fiesta Latina to be held at The Union

Today is Thursday, April 18, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Edible marijuana brownies are popular among college students, but have you ever had a weed hamburger?

On April 20, fast-food chain Carl’s Jr. is introducing the Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight, a cannabis-infused burger, at one location in Denver.

Patty Trevino, senior vice president of brand marketing for Carl’s Jr., said the company is “all about innovation” and the new burger “feels right for the brand.”

It’s unknown what toppings will be included on the burger, but it’s safe to assume the devil’s lettuce will be included in some capacity.
