PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (1010 WINS) – They do try to stay up with the times at McDonald’s, but they’ve not yet entered the barter economy.

A 23-year-old man in Florida was unsuccessful in his attempt to pay for his meal at the drive-thru window with a bag of marijuana, police said.

The cashier declined his offer. (There's apparently no button for that on the register).

Port St. Lucie police were informed about the proposed transaction and they nabbed Anthony Andrew Gallagher a short time later when he returned to the McDonald’s.

He’s charged with DUI and possession of marijuana.
