Got the munchies? Hit the drive-thru. No matter where you stand on the weed legalization debate, you kind of can’t blame some businesses for smelling fresh opportunity. That seems to be the case in one U.S. state, where franchisees are opening a number of new Taco Bell locations in the wake of legalization news.

The Mahopac News out of Mahopac County, New York reports that fast-food restaurants in the area are ramping up for some major jumps in business. That appears to be thanks to the legalization of recreational marijuana, the local paper says, as some McDonald’s in this area just outside of New York City are rolling up their sleeves to put permanent delivery service in place.

The news outlet reports: “[T]he owners of the Taco Bell in the hamlet of Carmel have filed three more site plan applications for new restaurants throughout the town, including two in Mahopac and one in Mahopac Falls.” This, as the number of marijuana dispensaries in the area is growing like weeds… with some even offering delivery themselves.

So hey, the new Taco Bell openings are all just to service demand. A spokesperson for Taco Bell’s parent company, Yum! Brands, commented: “Obviously, the need for tacos and chalupas is going to increase exponentially once [more] dispensaries open.” They also plan to increase their current hours of operation “in anticipation of the uptick in business.”
