Uhm, we didn’t order this: 10 lbs. of pot delivered to Seattle Kmart

PotSEATTLE — We all know how frustrating it can be to have packages delivered to an incorrect address, but one Seattle-area Kmart was in for quite a surprise when it opened a package in its stockroom and found 10 pounds of pot inside.

Seattle police reported that shortly after noon on Jan. 28, Kmart employees alerted police about the unusual package that had arrived at the Kmart store at 132nd and Aurora Ave. N. The package, which contained not only the aforementioned 10 pounds of pot wrapped in garbage bags, but was also stuffed with packing peanuts and Korean newspaper soaked with cleaning fluid, appeared to have been shipped via UPS from Los Angeles to a Philadelphia address.

The package never made it to its intended destination and for whatever reason, the return address on the package was the Seattle Kmart.

While it’s one heck of a Blue Light Special, the pot never made it to the store’s shelves and police seized the pot and are investigating the incident.

    It is not called pot it is called marijuana if we are legalizing it as a state then stop using the incorrect term to make it seem bad.

      technically it shouldn't even be called marijuana – it's cannabis.

        marijuana was actually the term given due to the racism early on against Mexicans, at least that is what I have heard.

    They probably call it pot because it grow like house plants in a pot.

    And now both the buyer and the seller know that they both acted in good faith and neither screwed each other.

        Actually, you are incorrect. In the structure he used it is correct to leave the Y in lower case.

    Colorado and Washington did a great thing, and I hope it is legalized soon everywhere. Stop locking people up for private use of marijuana already.

    At least a white person did not make the discovery. If so, they would have probably shot everyone in the store, to include the little kids and blamed it on mental illness and Call of Duty.

    Hilarious! Either someone got the address wrong, or they REALLY want KMart to start selling MJ! Well, once it's legalized for sale, we just might see it on the shelves there!
    Personally, I despise potheads, because they act like m0r0ns when they're high. I have no respect for such fools. But the same can be said for drunkards too! And pot doesn't appear to cause violent behavior or addiction, so it should be just as legal to sell as booze.
