There have been countless people on the internet that have at one time or another asked someone to ship them marijuana. Even though it does bring a person down to be trapped in a state that doesn’t allow for the dankest of dank, sending marijuana through the mail has never been and will never be a good idea. The act is risky, with severe consequences, and the chances of getting caught are higher than ever, as the post office is constantly looking for suspicious packages that may contain some of Colorado or Washington’s coveted bud.
A perfect example of why delivering weed through the mail is bad is the former post office employee from Maryland who was recently sentenced to jail time for delivering packages containing marijuana to the people on her delivery route. The 27 year old was given a year in prison in federal court for delivering the goods.
Devona Charley of Washington took a plea agreement, saying that she provided 29 year old Dominique Jones and others with marijuana along her usual route. According to the US Attorney’s Office, people were shipping the packages to certain addresses that they knew Charley was delivering to. She would drop off the packages at a predetermined location along her route. The report started that Charley knew the marijuana was in the packages and that she received $350 every time one was delivered.
The person that she was delivering to, Dominique Jones of Oxon Hill, plead guilty to his role in the delivery of the cannabis packages. He was sentenced to more than four years in prison for the charges. This remains a perfect example of why you shouldn’t ship bud through the mail. No matter how sneaky you think that you’re being, the chances of getting caught sending weed are very high.
