Couple Finds 65 lbs of Pot With Amazon Order

Couple Finds 65 lbs of Pot With Amazon Order”

A couple in Florida received more than they bargained for when they were delivered almost 30kg of cannabis by accident.

The customer and her fiancé allegedly ordered 27-gallon plastic containers, according to a WFTV report.

A Florida couple got more than expected in their Amazon order when they found 65 pounds of marijuana in their package.

Opening the containers, the couple, who wish to remain anonymous for their own safety, said there was a strong smell. They found a large amount of marijuana in the box. They immediately called Orlando police.

The couple called the police, which seized the marijuana, and is investigating how the drugs were shipped from MA via Amazon's warehouse deals, through the U.S. Postal Service. It had been shipped by Amazon "Warehouse Deals" via UPS from a facility in MA weighing 93.6 pounds.

They went back and forth via email for more than a month without speaking to a supervisor.

"There was no concern for a customer's safety", the shopper said, reports WFTV9.

Amazon said in a statement its customer service team worked directly with the customer to address concerns, and the company will work with law enforcement to investigate the case. Although they eventually received a $150 gift card with a message reading, "I am unable to do anything else at this time", the two said they simply wanted an apology and an explanation for the cannabis conundrum. Orlando police say no arrests have been made but the investigation is continuing.
