Someone Sent $270K Worth Of Pot To The Wrong Clothing Store

I’ve never mailed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of marijuana to anyone, but if I were going to do it, I’d at least make sure that it was properly addressed. But that’s apparently not the case for whomever sent 90 pounds of pot to one Philly-area clothing store over the course of two days.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that the dopey deliveries began Monday, when the manager of a clothing store received two boxes, each weighing about 30 pounds.

The packages were addressed to the store, but what they contained was nothing intended for the retailer’s shelf. Both packages were packed solid with marijuana, which the police said has a street value of about $3,000 per pound.

The manager contacted the police who confiscated the parcels and began investigating.

But they just had to come back the next day when a third box, also full to the brim with 30 pounds of pot, arrived at the store. That means someone has basically thrown away $270,000 worth of pot in just two days.

At this point, we expect that several people are seeing the possibility of green in every box that arrives at the store.

This is just the latest story in drug-deliveries gone wrong.

Just a few weeks ago, a FedEx driver delivered a box full of pot, painkillers, cocaine, morphine, LSD, hash, steroids, black tar heroin, codeine, and other drugs to the wrong person, who notified police, resulting in a substantial bust of the intended recipients.

In 2013, a box containing 11 pounds of marijuana landed on a California man’s doorstep because whoever sent the package had used his address as the return address.

Then there was the lawsuit in Massachusetts filed by a woman who received a box full o’ drugs intended for someone else, only to have the rightful recipient show up at her door because FedEx had given them her home address so they could pick up their parcel.
