Package Of Pot Delivered To Elderly Couple, And They Turn It In To Police

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police say an elderly Pennsylvania couple mistakenly received a UPS package containing 5 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $10,000.

Police said the Upper Darby couple turned the package in Thursday after having received it earlier in the week, The Delaware County Daily Times reported Monday."



If I received a UPS package containing five pounds of marijuana by mistake, I would interpret it as God working in mysterious ways his wonders to perform.

I wouldn`t look a gift horse in the mouth, and turn the divine package in to the police. I`m sure the cops have their own personal stashes form all the marijuana they confiscate.

I would thank my lucky stars, and pick up five pounds worth of munchies from the grocery store.

The elderly couple must feel self-satisfied by turning in the pot to the cops. But they would really be on cloud nine if they had kept the grass and smoked it.
