A Florida couple accidentally received 65 lbs of weed in the mail from Amazon… dank

"After the woman opened the box, she claimed she was hit with a strong odor, and under layers of packaging, she found 65 lbs of the devil’s lettuce."


October 24, 2017

This summer, a couple placed an order for a few 27-gallon storage totes. But when the packages arrived, something felt a little off — by almost 100 lbs.

After the woman opened the box, she claimed she was hit with a strong odor, and under layers of packaging, she found 65 lbs of the devil’s lettuce.

It’s always Florida, isn’t it??

The Orlando police found that the order was shipped by Amazon “Warehouse Deals” via UPS from a facility in Massachusetts, weighing 93.5 lbs in total.

Despite going back and forth with Amazon and not sleeping in their house for days after the incident (for fear the intended recipient would come looking for their package), the customers said they couldn’t even get in touch with a supervisor.

But, finally, a month later they did receive an email from an Amazon representative with a gift card for $150 and the message, “I am unable to do anything else at this time.”
