As part of its ongoing comeback campaign this year, Chipotle has deployed several tactics, such as free food and booze deals and even a summer rewards program to lure you back into its restaurants. Now, its latest effort appears to be an insanely chill tweet referencing sex and marijuana aimed at millennials, and -- yes -- it's as cringeworthy as it sounds.
