A man in the United Kingdom tried to send a bit of happiness to prisoners of The Mount prison in Bovingdon, England but got scrooged. Apparently the man sent a few grams of cannabis hidden in Christmas cards. When police went to arrest the man they found a stash of 2 cannabis plants growing in his closet. This guy was not very smart. Hemel Today writes:
Elroy Charles, 20, was acting for others when he sent the cards to prisoners by recorded delivery, St Albans Crown Court heard.
Prosecutor Peter Shaw said the cards, which were received on December 31 last year, January 6 and February 3, contained only a small amount of the drug.
Police went to Charles’ home in East Ham, London, on April 20 to arrest him. They found two stalks of cannabis plants growing in a wardrobe in his bedroom.
When questioned he said he had not been paid to send the drugs, but it had cost around £15 to post them.
The story in it’s entirety can be found here. It was a very nice deed Mr. Charles tried to perform but HELLO, sending weed in the mail to a JAIL will certainly get you popped. And for God sakes man, don’t use your own return address on the envelopes! Now Mr. Charles will be spending 14 months in jail, I wonder if he’s got a weed fairy on the outside…

On Wednesday an elderly couple in Pennsylvania received a 5-pound brick of cannabis via UPS, worth $20,000. When the couple realized they didn’t recognize the name on the package, they put it on their porch thinking the owner would retrieve it.
When no one did, they opened the package up and discovered the marijuana brick. They alerted the police, who say the return address is a fake one in Arizona. The police also say the cannabis was packed in styrofoam lining to prevent detection by dogs.
Authorities suspect this was a “trial run” by drug traffickers to test the neighborhood as a possible drop point for product. Basically a scout will watch for a package to arrive, go up and sign for it, and walk away with the drugs.
If that’s true, then one shouldn’t be so quick to jump for joy if they get a brick of weed in the mail. Dealers may be watching, and they may want their weed. Another lovely side effect of prohibition and the ridiculous profit margins it creates.
