A shipment of pot at a Kmart store in Seattle arrived Monday and has management and police stumped. Reportedly, 10-pounds of marijuana that began in Los Angeles and was meant for Philadelphia somehow made its way to the retailer instead.
According to a Jan. 31 report from Seattle Weekly, workers at the Aurora store received the package around the noon hour and were shocked when they discovered its contents.
Pot, not the garden variety at a Kmart store, was wrapped in garbage bags, shipping peanuts and -- get this -- Korean newspaper, according to a SFD spokesperson.
Officers say the mystery weed, while addressed to the store, located at 132nd and Aurora Avenue N in Seattle, was meant for an undisclosed location in Philly. However, officials are not letting on as to how they learned about this piece of the ganja puzzle.
Nonetheless, it brings up a lot of questions about the safety of packages delivered by different conveyances. Are criminals that brazen enough to use the U.S. mail or commercial delivery to ship and service their clientele?
Perhaps, the folks on the West Coast misheard the news and believe the sale of marijuana is legal in all states.
Heck, perhaps the bud was for medicinal purposes or scientific research. Okay; that was a stretch, right?
No matter; if pot in a Kmart store gets all the way to the location undetected, a valid question is: who's minding the shop?
