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!

    So….. My question is regarding the ‘canned corn’.  If it weighed the same, was sealed, had no smell, why were the postal inspectors opening up peoples Canned Corn?

    • Jesus Marijuana

      yeah couldn’t that mean they are looking at all of our mail cause how else could they have found it if it was that concealed.

      • old boy

        well the smell will permeate ANYTHING given enough time. If you plan on shipping some dope package it right before you ship it, don’t bother with coffee grounds and stuff dogs smell right through it. Just seal it in air tight plastic several times. Protip get one of those food saver vacuum sealers works like a charm ;)

        • sddgergergrgegeg

          never had time to decay tho hah

        • 1stBeStrong

          Do you honestly think that the USPS has dogs walking around smelling the mail? LOL

    • William Reilly

      no liquid ?????

      • 1stBeStrong

        You never know if it has been made to shake and have a liquid sound to it or not. Some of those cans for ‘hiding valuables’ are very realistic. :)

      you sir are part of the problem if people like you don’t stop doing what they are doing marijuana will never be decriminalized. aside from the fact that you are a piece of shit the idea of legalizing marijuana is to get away from criminal minds like yours please keep your distance and your mouth closed… talking about a hit on someone over marijuana are you fucking kidding me?

      • James

        I agree with Dav, even though my marijuana days might be over, I would like to see reform and get possession and use decriminalized. But if anyone in Washington wants to support us seeing posts from you Kenneth isn’t going to get them on our side.

    Feds(US Customs and Border protection)   recently seized some of my seeds from THC in can they detect and why destroy non toxic ,no Agricultural pests..very annoying and expensive, but I will continue to order from the best seed brokers available. I would much rather keep my money in my own country,but our current administration has once again gone with Big Pharma in dismissing the popular interest in legalizing one of the historically most useful and non toxic medicinal plants for 4000 years. To the a..holes in CHICAGO who took my seeds.I hope you grow all males!

    • SpareMeTheBS

      Do a google on Stoney Girl Gardens. They are the first US seed company and are in Salem Oregon. They make some crazy claims about their products but not sure why since they’re good. They say things like 36% THC and that’s just BS. People that have tried their seeds say they’re as good as any but no 36%.

    Masking the smell of
    pot with peanut butter, pepper, or any food simply will not fool a trained dog.
    Dogs can smell past any masking odor quite easily. Did you
    ever wonder why dogs sniff each other’s butts and also like to stick their
    noses in piles of dog poop? It isn’t because they necessarily like the smell of
    poop. They smell butts and piles because they live in a world of smells, and
    the most important thing to them, as social pack animals, is knowing who is
    about. They have glands on their butts that excrete minute amounts of a
    pheromone and lace it into every shit pile they lay. The pheromone is unique to
    each individual dog. Thus, by sniffing a butt, a dog ties the pheromone to
    FiFi. When he smells a shit pile and smells FiFi pheromone, he knows FiFi was
    about and laid that pile. Thus, by smelling every dog butt and shit pile in the
    neighborhood, your dog is building a complex map of his surroundings based on
    those smells. So if a dog can smell minute amounts of a pheromone mixed
    in with the powerful stench of dog shit and reliably ascertain which dog shat
    it (and probably when), do you think you can fool a drug trained dog with
    peanut butter? I didn’t think so!

    Plastic bags by
    themselves do not make your stash dog proof – not Foodsaver, not Smelly Proof
    Bags – not even close. Dogs can smell EXTREMELY minute concentrations of odors,
    and PLENTY of pot smell goes right through vacuum sealed bags – no matter how
    many layers you put on there. Plastic merely retards (slows down) the migration
    of pot smell so that YOU can’t smell it very easily. If you don’t believe me,
    try this simple experiment: put an ounce or two of good weed in a vacuum bag.
    Seal it in your favorite vacuum bag. Put it in a new, air tight plastic box,
    like a tupperware container, for a week. Open the box. Unless you have a poor
    sense of smell, you will smell weed aplenty! So what to do if you want to transport
    something? Use the only bag that utilizes activated charcoal and a
    double-walled bag to completely absorb and trap the smell so it never makes it
    to the outer bag. It’s called the Gonzo Bag and it is made in Humboldt County
    by an environmental chemist, Gonzo Bags USA. They come in three sizes, S -
    about an ounce, MED, about a qp, L – 1.5 lb. Check them out. They are dog proof

  • Cassie Kowalik

    I have shipped at east 50-70 times. I go out of town quite often and no person is going to stop me from having my meds…honestly, the best way to do it is to go through FedEx with a corporate acct (preferably) and when you pack it you use vacuum bags. Use 3 layers. The first layer is the bag containing the MJ then vacuum that up then the second layer is covered with pepper. Seal that up then the final layer is to hold the other layers in place. After all that put it in the FedEx box, bring it down to FedEx, send it overnight, make sure to NOT put your name or the receivers name. Also put NO SIGNITURE REQUIRED! Also make sure to use a REAL return address. Doesn’t have to be yours, but make sure it’s a real address. Then, when your receiver gets the package, they need to make sure they DON’T answer the door when the FedEx guy comes and drops off the package…this is pretty much it. Follow these easy steps and it’s pretty easy to send your meds to wherever.

    I knew a vet from Vietnam who shipped 4400 pre-rolled joints along with 2.5 lbs of loose pot from Nam to the USA. I also knew a guy who carried home, under his arm, a 5 lb block of hash that had been carved into a budda head and shellaced to look very professional. The joints came in packs of ten and we called them Sally’s after fire base Sally up by Hue. Vietnam pot had a taste and a smell all it’s own. Ahhh, the good ole days!

    You have the common sense of Jerry’s Kids if you use the USPS to transport material. Then I read comments of morons admitting, practically bragging that they’ve gotten away with using USPS. Times up moron; Big Brother has your IP address and information. Too late, you’re probably already in a jail cell, surrounded by other idiots.
    Prison is full of morons, you’ll fit in just fine.
    Common sense just isn’t “common” anymore, is it ????

  • Torran

    It’s entirely possible that a dog alerted the inspectors to the package, they obtained a warrant to open the package, opened the package, saw cans of corns, the dog alerted again, they opened them and found the weed. Someone mentioned something about Physics 101 earlier, so here’s another science lesson for you: odors (your stinky green) can permeate solid substances (your canned corn). The time it takes an odor to permeate a substance depends on the substance(s) and the number of layers it has to permeate through. Experiment with it for yourself. Throw some sardines in a ziploc and see if you can smell them right away. Probably not, right? Take the same bag and let it sit out on the counter for a couple hours and then smell it again. Starting to smell them yet? Wait a couple more hours and do it again. Next you could try triple bagging it. My point is, while it may not smell as soon as it’s packaged and on it’s way to the post office, the smell will still permeate THROUGH the can. And if you’re testing this out with a can, odds are YOU will never be able to smell it, but don’t forget, a dog’s sense of smell ranges anywhere from 1000 to 10000000 times more sensitive than the average person’s.
