ORLANDO COUPLE SURPRISED, FINDS 65 POUNDS OF WEED IN AMAZON DELIVERY
Usually one can breathe easy when shopping at Amazon. But for one Orlando couple their simple order of plastic 27 gallon storage bins came with a bit of a surprise. When the delivery arrived via UPS it weighed a startling 93 and a half pounds. When the couple opened up the package the mystery was solved when they discovered tightly compacted bales of marijuana, to the tune of 65 pounds. That’s a lot of weed to find on your doorstep.
ANXIOUS SQUARE COUPLE REPORT WINDFALL OF GANJA TO LOCAL AUTHORITIES
While some might consider this a windfall, the couple didn’t welcome the discovery and immediately reported the massive weed delivery to the local authorities. The shipment of the unexpected drugs is still ongoing, but it is known that the storage bins filled with weed originated at the Amazon’s Warehouse Deals facility in Massachusetts. It seems a safe bet that someone associated with the misplaced and confiscated shipment of marijuana is in just a bit of trouble.
FEAR OF WEED OWNERS SHOWING UP AT THEIR HOME TO COLLECT MASSIVE SCORE
The couple were made just a bit anxious about receiving the trackable package to their home filled with the illicit weed. “We love Amazon and do a lot of shopping on Amazon,” the anonymous customer told local reporters. But they added, “We were still pretty fearful our home would be broken into, and we didn’t sleep there for a few days.”
WOULD YOU KEEP THE WEED? OR WOULD YOU CALL SMOKEY?
I’m not sure about most people, but if someone mistakenly shipped me 65 pounds of weed (which ranks as mid-grade weed on the very authoritative-sounding site Stuff Stoners Like suggests could be worth $2,000-3000 a pound for a total of $130,000-190,000) I suppose it would be just a bit tempting to lay low for a little while. It’s entirely possible the original weed-stashers lost tracking of the box before it made its way into Amazon’s discount warehouses.
But perhaps they didn’t, and there’d be almost no way to know when or how the weed entered into Amazon’s system, or even whether the likely panicking people who misplaced it could potentially find out how to track it to its delivered destination. I’ve remember No Country for Old Men, which ended really badly for every character but Anton Chigurh. So, maybe on second thought, keeping the massif puff party probably wouldn’t be the best idea.
But, at least Amazon reportedly gave the couple a $150 gift certificate. So there’s that.
