Giant Bag of Weed Donated to Seattle Thrift Store
Someone donated 2.5 pounds or about $4,000 worth of weed to a Seattle thirft store last week.
 
The strange act prompted Seattle Police Department to issue a press release noting that:
 
"Donating to thrift shops is a terrific way to give a second life to your well-loved Velcro sneakers, keyboards or flannel zebra jammies, However, thrift stores cannot accept the following items: Tires, Soiled mattresses, Laptops, Large bags of marijuana.
 
"We thought this reminder might be helpful given that thrift store employee called police Thursday afternoon after finding a large bag of marijuana in a donation bin in North Seattle. The employee was removing items from the bin near N. 100th Street and Aurora Ave N. at about 1 pm yesterday, when he found a garbage bag containing 2.5 pounds of marijuana.
 
"An officer took the marijuana and placed it into evidence for destruction."
