And then immediately calls the police. Hes a 61 yr old dentist from manhattan.

http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2011 /04/01/2011-04-01_manhattan_dentist_sent _31_pounds_of_pot_with_street_value_of_5 0k_in_the_mail.html

It was pretty dank weed too apparently. He could have gotten more than 50k if sold right, or he could have retired and spent the rest of his life smoking weed lol.

As of right now the poll shows 65% of people would call the police also. I mean wow...

Selling this is extremely dangerous, I suppose, it was surely the right thing to call the police.

stoners are actually pretty chill people, despite what you think about the violence and criminal activity. The only reason theres violence and criminal activity in the first place is because its illegal!

And breaking it down to quarter pounds and selling those for $1000 each is a great way to sell it. This could give you over 120k easily.

Ive seen and also been involved in quarter pound deals. They arent dangerous at all lol

Wrong he got 40 pounds of weed in the mail, and gave only 31 pounds of it to the cops.

Mans been alive for 61 years, he knows how shit works.

Thank you for this insightful response, but I am certainly sure that the old man was deeply shocked and did not even think about selling it for one moment.

My initial reaction was "lucky mother fucker" and something along the lines of "what a dumb cunt", but you have to take in to account that there was a lot of money involved here. If he were to keep it, inevitably, someone would come looking. And considering it was delivered to his Chinatown office I can pretty much guarantee that the 'someone' who would come looking would be involved in asian gang activity. Most likely cutting the mother fucker's head off.

Plus, if the asians grew the weed, it wasn't dank.

I would have called the police too. That's a massive prison sentence if you get caught with it.

Isnt it highly ironic how the most dangerous part of cannabis is jail time and getting killed over it?

Nup. Too many repercussions - the people who sent it come looking, for example, not to mention that covering a paper trail of any kind is hell.

As someone with no experience at all in dealing, wouldn't risk it. Wouldn't blame anyone who took the chance, though, that's a lot of cash and the effort would be paid off in the long run.

Fuck it. I would've kept that shit and tried to sell it off. Anything bad that could happen is totally irrelevant. It isn't every day that 50k is delivered to your house.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

Anyone can claim the 31 pounds of marijuana. The fuck? That shit is illegal and they're saying anyone can claim it. Funny though.

I would be kind of scared because that's worth a lot of money and the person who sent it could find out it was sent to me.

I love weed... but I too would call the cops.

Don't get me wrong, I'd pinch the hell out of that.... and by pinch I mean fist-fulls... but I'd still call the cops. Getting caught with that is a huge punishment and I wouldn't want to push my luck like that.

Take a few handfuls, and do the right thing. Win/Win

No he would not have gone for life im pretty sure you don't go to jail for smoking pot as long as you do for killing someone.

Yes, let's say NO IT DONT WERK THAT WAY and then say you're pretty sure. Nice.

The fact is, is that you can get serious prison time for large amounts of weed. The mount of 31 pounds will get you at least a decade in prison in Virginia.

Anyone wishing to claim the package can contact the 5th Precinct detective squad at (212) 334-0742.

Odds are this is how they nab the guy who mailed it.

Not everyone is a pothead, and even hardcore stoners know the law. Anyway, the real humor is not the article itself, but this line:

"Anyone wishing to claim the package can contact the 5th Precinct detective squad at (212) 334-0742"

ANYONE.
