I have never worked somewhere that would call the cops if we had that much weed delivered to us.

We would throw parties. And get bonuses. And more parties. And Doritos.

Are we doing it wrong?

10 pounds of packaged pot delivered to North Seattle Kmart

In another couple of years, this headline won't make the news.

This is just down the street from me. Why, oh why, couldn't it have been inexplicably mailed to my house?

Instead, it was sent to the address on the return label, which for some reason was the Kmart store.

They really don't understand?  Okay, I'll explain it.  The shipper wasn't dumb enough to use his own address on the package.  That's it.  The entire explanation.  They probably had a K-Mart advertisement close to hand and used that address.  It's not a Columbo level mystery.

Are you kidding? This is illegal untaxed marijuana. I would suspect a K-Mart getting a huge shipment of untaxed liquor or cigs would get an article too.

2013-02-18 08:59:42 PM  
So, Kmart is expanding the meaning of 'ship to store for pick up'.  I haven't checked, is this possible at all Kmarts or is it availability by zip code and does the sale of the pot goes towards the points savings card.

/To really expand their ship to store, they need to actually get some quality products.

I bet the person that farked up saw the article and was thinking: "What about the other ten pounds? I sent twenty."

Well, that explains why they have shiatty minumum wage K-Mart jobs. This would be a most unnewsworthy event if I happened to be on the clock.

The police estimated the street value of the 2.3 pounds of pot as $947 million

My first job was at Kmart. I worked the service desk and got to make the store announcements for blue light specials and store closings and whatnot. When we were particularly slow I always got a kick announcing "attention Kmart shopper" to the lonely souls wandering the aisles.

Repeat. And stupid headline. If people continue to equate marijuana with hallucinogenics ie.. "wow look at my hands", then the "war against drugs" bullshiat will continue to thrive.
Ignorance.

Actually, I put together the FARK party on Capitol Hill.  I think Benevolent Misanthrope put together the party in Issaquah, which I missed.  Sorry BenMis; next time for sure.

Back on topic:  if I really wanted weed, I could go to the grow house across the street.

KrispyKritter: the odds that a shipping/receiver worker would call the law are staggering to my imagination.


Indeed, having been a shipping/receiving person, I would have kept that loot to myself and gifted it to friends who smoke the ganja.

The article wasn't clear on whether or not that package was actually shipped from Kmart, though. Wouldn't surprise me if someone with access to the shipping puter sent it out. Tee hee hee.
