Free marijuana

dopeI received this bag containing 8g of high-grade marijuana at my office yesterday. There was return address, no note, no Thank You card … just the bag of dope inside three carefully packed layers of sealed bags and inside a prepaid post bag. It was addressed to the office.

With a street value of around $80.00 it’s either an expensive prank, a mistake or some other game. I delivered it to the local police to be on the safe side.

What’s the craziest thing you have been sent to your business?

    We have had little gifts of the same product left for us. We just disposed of it. Small town no need to cause a fuss.

    Pretty sure it was part of the weekly supply to gotch and networks supply allocation dept, explains a lot about how they set their supply numbers.

    Made me laugh out loud rick ! For years
    as we tidy up the magazine mysteries at the end of delivery days I have joked about how much silly weed they have been smoking in the warehouse ……

    Perhaps another gift from the Anonymous Louse who wrote that lovingly crafted letter about you and your business. What better way to bring someone down than attacking sexuality or drug use.

    Although I am in favour of liberalizing drug laws, taking that direct to the police was the only option you had.

    David it’s hard to tell. The police wondered about a connection to several events this year.
