The first tip off was the weight. Four empty plastic storage bins should not weight more than 93 pounds.
Then the smell —an overpowering odor akin to the old Hollywood Sportatorium rock concert hall in the 1970s.
But that is what has an Orlando couple feeling dazed and confused. When the pair opened their order from Amazon that arrived at their doorstep they found the storage bins loaded with 65 pounds of wrapped marijuana.
The marijuana sat inside boxes wrapped in green plastic inside the black bins. Police seized the drugs and are investigating, WFTV reports, adding that the customers reported the incident to Amazon immediately and were never able to speak to a supervisor. They went back and forth mostly via emails for about a month, the TV station reported.
Eventually, the couple received an email and a $150 gift card with the message, “I am unable to do anything else at this time.”
Amazon didn’t respond to an email inquiry from the Miami Herald on Saturday about the mix up. The company told the ABC affiliate that its customer service team had worked directly with the customers to address concerns and would work with law enforcement officials to investigate the case.
Believe me I understand, maybe because I have so many friends in low places I don’t see the logistics being a problem but that’s just me.

It's not so simple. Haven't you ever seen the first season of Breaking Bad? It's not so easy to break into the world of drug sales when you've never done it before. Especially with bulk like that. Any streetwise drug seller would be immediately suspicious of these white bred people trying to unload that much weight.

On the low end assuming it is mid grade that’s roughly about $1000 per Lb and if it were loud then your looking at about $3000 per Lb so they just “did the right thing” and threw away $65,000 - $195,000. Numbers like that would make for a tough decision.
