PostalWorkerAccording to the U.S. government, more marijuana is being shipped these days through the U.S. Mail than ever before (see the link). The U.S. Postal Service has seen marijuana seizures increase by more than 400 percent since 2007. “There is no better way to ship drugs right now,” said San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne. “It’s going up all the time.” Marijuana shipments are up, while other drugs are on the decline. Between 2008 and 2009, there were fewer seizures of cocaine, heroin, opium, and methamphetamine.

Postal Service Inspectors recently found what appeared to be canned corn. But when inspectors opened the cans, they found bags of marijuana inside. The bags were heat sealed, the weight was the same as what was listed on the label of the can, and the can was professionally sealed to lock in the smell. The amount of marijuana seized by inspectors, has increased every year since 2005. There was an 84 percent increase from 2007 to 2008 and a 180 percent increase between 2008 and 2009. Inspectors seized 8,453 lbs in 2007, 15,521 lbs in 2008, and 43,403 lbs of marijuana in 2009. Despite the growing amount of seizures, the amount of inspectors has stayed the same during this time span.

An estimated 75 percent of marijuana seized by the Post Office has originated in four states; Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. However, this does not mean that other areas are not seeing marijuana shipments. Recently, a woman in South Dakota received 50 lbs of marijuana in the mail, which she thought was a television. “It was not what she expected,” said local Sheriff Duane Mohr, “It had an international post stamp on it, but they were crafty enough to print off a return address label with a Motorola logo on it just to make it look legitimate.”

There are 1,614 inspectors at United States Post Offices. They use K-9’s to assist in the searches, but it is like searching for a needle in a hay stack. However, it hasn’t stopped 1,278 people from going to jail in 2009, for trying to mail marijuana. The U.S. Postal Service offers a $50,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of people trying to mail marijuana via the U.S. mail system.

Have you ever tried to ship marijuana through the mail? I only know one person that had the balls to do it, but he was successful! He shipped a quarter pound of supers to his son in Texas. He did all the classic stuff like heat seal it, with fabric softener sheets inside of the heat sealed bag. Then he rolled it in syrup, then in coffee grounds, and then heat sealed it again. He wrapped the entire thing in layers of plastic wrap and put it in a box with some more coffee. At the time I told him he was throwing a QP down the toilet, but his son confirmed that it arrived, and that he was smoking it in his bong!

    I just had a friend confirm that he sent some primo Oregon bud to his apartment in Arizona. He sent down a care package to himself full of different food but he took a peanut butter jar and hollowed out most of the peanut butter and put in an ounce of dank instead.

      Wow why are all these people talking on the internet anyway? Is somebody trying to do business to. You people have balls that’s for sure.

    • Eljeffe

      I know people that ship USPS. They do use dogs. No amount of masking or plastic wrap will fool a dog. There is plenty of documentation on this subject. Their noses are so sensitive that a well trained dog can sniff out the strong, characteristic odor of cannabis mixed with any smell you can think of. The only way you can avoid dog detection that I know of is using the Gonzo Bag – designed by a chemist. It uses activated charcoal in a dual layer bag sandwich design to absorb any fugitive molecules of cannabis odor and trap it in the activated charcoal. Nothing gets out. Its the same material that is used to filter organic chemicals to purify water and air. You can get them for about $45 for a bag that holds one lb. at http://www.gonzobags.com. Well worth the price when you consider what a lb of grade A herb is going for these days. They call that “cheap insurance.” And if you are, say, someone who might be driving a large quantity coast to coast, you can use them for that, too. They add a bit of bulk, but not much weight. Worth it for the security and peace of mind, as there are many drug stops and dog checks every day out there on the hwy!

          • forty oz of D

            He was referring to the names of the strains. If the Feds want to waste that much money & resources tracking Qps in the mail then they’re really losing the so-called drug war.

            Besides. I think they are still busy trying to shut down the dispensaries on the West coast & Colorado.

  • http://thecallouslonewolf.tumblr.com Juelz

    I’m currently living in New Jersey and if you have been paying attention to the enforcement of medical marijuana they’re pretty strict over here. I don’t have health insurance and I suffer from a serious case of insomnia (it lasts for 3-4 days sometimes). It has been the only solution, and may I say easiest solution, to my problem. I’m very interested in getting some beautiful buds shipped out to me since it is hard to find in my neck of the woods. If anyone could help me with this, please e-mail me at thecrownjuelz@gmail.com.

    Thanks for your time.
