Michigan woman surprised to find marijuana in mail


A Mich. woman found a fragrant surprise among her bills, catalogs and junk mail: a whole lot of marijuana. Happy day!

Police in Blackman Township west of Detriot said the surprise 2-pound package of the ganja arrived in the mail last week at the elderly woman's home. She called police, who say they don't know who sent the weed as the Arizona return address on the package was bogus, according to the Jackson Citizen Patriot.

Police say the pot is worth about $2,400. JackPOT!

The marijuana either was sent to the woman's home by mistake or someone planned to snatch it from the mailbox before she checked, Deputy Director Jon Johnston told the newspaper. Police seized the pot and say it will be destroyed.

Mich. is one of 14 states that allows 2.5 oz of medical marijuana per person, or 12 plants.
