Corporate TGIFs already responded that this message was independent of the brand’s stance and is under investigation:
TGIF’s knows who breads their wings and fries their potato skins: and that is stoners. Cause you’d have to be high to eat in a TGIF’s, which is slightly above Applebees and slightly above Chiles on the list of inedible mid-range food chains. As you’d expect, stoner social media is up in arms from High Times to every major Instagram account:

At least it’s a fun way to end 2016: the year that telling stoners they’re not welcome in a corporate food chain gets you under investigation and hopefully fired. Hopefully it’s a sign for what’s to come in 2017.
