$425k in pot?  Meh, it would take forever to smoke all that and it's probably shiatty Mexican brick.  Now if it were $425k in coke.....

Looks like the NRA/Tea party has been busy in marijuana distribution.

Who else would think of using a gun safe to transport dangerous drugs, DANGEROUS DRUGS THAT END UP IN THE HANDS OF OUR YOUNG CHILDREN!

The cartels would figure out who got it and come calling.  If you haven't let the police in on it by then they will probably charge you.  You would be farked if you didn't just store the weed for the cartel.  Even if you did that, you just got yourself put on the radar of cartel friendly people and that path could lead to tragedy.

No, you're mush better off securing less than 10% of it somewhere safe for a long while or so and calling the cops to take their picture with the rest.

Then a year or so later you get to make the best hash you ever didn't pay for.

unnamed person who got delivery in early june and did they also mention the county/city? Yeah, real hard to figure out for the company who ships those safes

Funny story, it seems the department scale was mis-calibrated and it was really only $325k worth of MJ...

Weed in those quantities in Mexico is about 75-100 per pound. Youre talking less than 50k cost to the Mexicans. Nobody is looking for it.  I dont know what it'd go for in that part of the US, but in TX it'd be around 450 per pound sold individually. All at once, probably 250 north of the border patrol checkpoint.
If you got it and you're not in the drug business, selling off that much weed would probably result in you getting caught before you cashed out.  Lots of risks are involved if you hold on to it and sell it... The Mexicans finding you probably isnt one of them.  Getting caught or ripped off by potential "customers" is probably much more likely.

From comment in TFA: Being a retired trucker myself, I have to wonder just how many of the safe's were "loaded" and too, since the truck had to pass through several states to get to its destination, why did the load weight for the safes and the weight ticket not match. Never mind probably a Mexican truck and driver so...

bud I dont want to sound all ITG or anything, but I have had a bit of experience with how the drug scene works and unless you are one of them the cartels are very gunshy about tracking down people in the US, the money,effort and exposure it takes is not worth it to them, even if you are a mule that burns em most of the time they write it off as a business expense and move on, most consider it a success if one in five shipments makes it. Plus the effort of finding out where the misdirected shipment went to would leave a unwanted trail back to them and they know that
As far as the police are concerned, leave the stuff untouched in the safe for a while to see if the cops look for it, if they do you plead stupid and make like you never opened it, if they dont come after a bit its party time

That is some of the dumbest advice there. If the police have the thing flagged and are tracking it, if you don't attempt to turn it in immediately, and take your wait and see approach, they are going to turn your life upside down. There is no playing stupid, if they are tracking it and you don't turn it in immediately, they will arrest you, tear your house apart, and charge you. Even if they eventually drop the charges it's going to end up costing you a few thousand dollars. But hell, if you want to take the chance, go ahead.

Wouldn't it be equally likely that they would be pissed at you for turning it in? Then it's gone forever, and they have law enforcement trying to track where it came from. If you held onto it for a while then at least you could give it back. Even destroying it would be a better option since at least no one is looking for them because of it.

In fairness to their argument - If the police are tracking hundreds of pounds of pot, what department in the US is going to wait until it's delivered? If they know it's on the truck,  that's an amount worth a roadblock. the CARTEL tracking it is far more likely. And the cartel's probably going to turn your life upside down regardless of intent, just because you're a witness essentially.

Maybe they want the person it is being delivered to? Like they do when ever they flag a shipment being sent through the mail or ups.

Where in the article does it say 10lbs? I don't even smoke the sh*t and I know it wasn't 10lb. Maybe 150lb of ditch, or 75lb of premium...

Ofc with cop math, maybe it was 10lb... It's not like cops are great at anything but harassment.

10 lbs of pot, wholesale is about $2000/lb.  So that's $20k of pot.

So much derp. Who do you think put the pot in the safe to begin with? "The bad guys." Do you not think maybe they know it "fools the dogs" already? This is obviously Mexican cartel, not Badger on the corner here..

If the argument is now the cartel knows who received their drugs, I would argue the citizen is safer as the cartel knows to stop looking for their missing shipment and just write it off. I don't think the Mexican cartels have as much respect for the citizen/cop/criminal divide as our more traditional mafias, but why would they kill you for a mistake they made in shipping if you didn't try to keep it?

I believe the headline said three hundred pounds. It beaks down to about a hundred and five dollars an ounce, which is toward the high end for mexican brick at street level. so a bottom level dealer would pay about 45 to 60 an ounce, or say eight hundred a pound. his supplier would be in at about half that, probably less, so about 80-100 grand, but that's assuming its on one person, which it won't be. At least one or two more levels are likely, with each step nearly doubling the value. To the actual cartel controlling the shipment, its probably only in the fifteen-twenty thousand range, if that.

tl;dr- farking cop math. If everyone went by cop math, I'd be worth about two-hundred-million dollars, despite being dirt poor.
