Maybe THAT’S why Chipotle tastes SO good.
Chipotle’s top marketing executive, Mark Crumpacker, was charged with seven counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and released on bail.
Chipotle is getting hit with so many different things, I am surprised they are still open. People were getting sick from the food… and now they are the cocaine capital of the world!
Just the other day I wrote story about new changes to bring customers back, but I guess they don’t want new customers.

From Daily Mail:
The Chipotle Chief Marketing Officer arrested in a major New York City drug sting appeared in court on Tuesday.
Mark Crumpacker, 53, asked for cocaine to be delivered 13 times to his $2.5million apartment on West 13th Street near Union Square, and spent $3,000 according to the district attorney.
He was charged with criminal possession in the seventh degree and bail was set at $10,000 or $4,500 cash.
He looked somber as he made his way in to see the judge, dressed in a blue blazer and handcuffed while being led by a police officer.
Crumpacker made just shy of $4.3million in total compensation in 2015 in his role as CMO at the Mexican fast food chain, receiving roughly $45,00 for housing expenses and over $30,000 for a company car.
Judge Edward McLaughlin said to Crumpacker and his lawyer on Tuesday: ‘I don’t want someone who is a purported bigshot to think they should be treated differently.’

What a great use of your tax dollars, New York City. Our drug war is awesome. Keep enriching cops and courts with our hard-earned taxes.
