Anthony Gallagher, 23, was busted early Sunday morning after he tried to barter with a fast food employee at the Port St. Lucie drive thru: greasy food for some weed. Police said the McDonald’s employee turned down Gallagher’s pot payment around 2 a.m., then called 911. Gallagher allegedly left the drive thru, then circled back shortly after, when officers were already waiting for him. Port. St. Lucie police said officers smelled a “heavy odor of marijuana emitting from the car” and found 11 grams of weed. Gallagher admitted to trying to pay with marijuana, but said it was all in jest. He was arrested for possession of marijuana and driving under the influence and booked at the St. Lucie County jail.

The lens, which gives a Snapchatter Marley's signature crocheted cap, dreadlocks and dark skin, has infuriated many social media users, who lashed out at the app, calling the latest update a form of blackface. "@Snapchat I am very offended about the Bob Marley filter for 4/20. IT IS BLACK FACE!," one tweeter complained, while another fumed: ".@Snapchat delete the Bob Marley filter NOW. It is blackface, it's racist, and it's disrespectful to reduce such an important artist to this." Rather than remove the filter, Snapchat issued a statement in response to the backlash, defending the company's decision to create it. "The lens we launched today was created in partnership with the Bob Marley Estate, and gives people a new way to share their appreciation for Bob Marley and his music, the company wrote of the singer, who died of cancer in May 1981. Millions of Snapchatters have enjoyed Bob Marley's music, and we respect his life and achievements." Kylie Jenner, who currently reigns as the most-viewed person on Snapchat, was one of many users who tried on Marley's mug. The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star shared a video of herself as the Jamaican-born icon, saying, "Yaaas, bitch, yaaas."
