A woman in Hazlet, New Jersey was greeted by a 50 pound package of marijuana when she checked her mail last week.
She was expecting to find a number of hair care products which she had previously ordered. When she found the cannabis, she contacted local law enforcement.
She told police she did not know who sent the package, which was not addressed to her — which begs the question of why she was expecting to find the products she ordered.
Local police confiscated the cannabis and posted photos to their Facebook page. The social media posts invited the true recipient of the package to claim it from police headquarters.
The police estimated the product had a street value of $100,000, or $2,000 per pound. Based on this estimate, it would sell on the street for $15.60 per eighth or $125 per ounce, prices, which in New Jersey, would lead a knowledgeable cannabis consumer to question whether it was actually marijuana or rather just packaged dirt.
