New Jersey Police Find 50-lb. Package of Weed, Taunt Intended Recipient on Facebook

Fifty Pounds of Weed Gets Shipped to the Wrong Address

When a large, unexpected package arrived at a New Jersey family’s home where the addressed recipient did not live, the residents called the police. When Hazlet Police arrived and opened the package in search of a packing list or receipt that could help them locate the intended recipient, they found 50 pounds of vacuum-sealed marijuana.

Now, we’re all familiar with the whole “it got lost in the mail” shtick, but I really wouldn’t want to be the person who misaddressed $100,000 worth of weed to an unsuspecting suburban family so law abiding they wouldn’t even open another person’s mail.
