Pot in a Kmart store was en route from Los Angeles to Philadelphia when it made an unexpected stop in a Seattle department store. The marijuana had been painstakingly wrapped in Korean newspapers, garbage bags and packing peanuts. The paper wrapping had been doused in cleaning fluid, according to a Jan. 31, 2013 report by Seattle Weekly.
The sender of the mysterious package used the address of the department store as the return address on the package. That's how the pot in the Kmart store wound up at its unlikely destination.
The workers at the department store were probably surprised to discover the 10-pound package of marijuana delivered to their door. It's important to note that the employees did the right thing by calling the police, who seized the pot from the Kmart store, rather than keeping the contents of the package for themselves, which may have been a temptation for some people in that situation.
Marijuana was recently legalized in Washington State thanks to the passage of Initiative 502:
"I-502 authorizes the sale of marijuana in Washington State by retailers licensed through the Liquor Control Board. The rules implementing the initiative will not be completed for about one year. You can find information about the implementation of I-502 on the Washington State Liquor Control Board's website. The initiative does not amend or repeal the medical marijuana laws (chapter 69.51A RCW) in any way. The laws relating to authorization of medical marijuana by healthcare providers are still valid and enforceable. Some additional information about I-502 and the current medical marijuana laws is available in our frequently asked questions."
