Denver, CO - In a rebellious effort for equal competition and fair pricing, sources found that Jeff Hartley tweeted," Theaters need to stop extorting customers for food if they are going to charge $10.50 for someone to see a crappy movie."
It is reported that shortly after he tweeted, this price conscious renegade stopped by a local convenient store before going to the movies to purchase gummy bears in an attempt to avoid the high prices of theater snacks and beverages. Not to miss the Coca-Cola movie trivia questions, Hartley accidentally picked up marijuana edible gummy bears that resembled his gooey treat.
Local anti-drug groups were seen protesting the store for the mistake. They made points to emphasize that this incident could have been disastrous if the candy was intended for children.
The shop owner defended his right to sell the marijuana candy by holding a press conference in front of his store. "I keep the marijuana fused snacks and the plain snacks in separate sections of the store, he rushed in and out so fast, he must've missed the sign, and I did check his ID." Upon review of the security footage of the store, Hartley can be seen showing his ID.
Later that same day, eye witness from the theater lobby confirmed that Hartley spent over $250 on theater snacks, and left the theater stating, "Paddington is the best movie ever."
