If you have not received your UPS marijuana delivery, yet the chances are that the police have captured the shipment.
On Wednesday, the Police Department posted a photo of three bags filled with marijuana discovered inside an undeliverable UPS package in an attempt (very much tongue-in-cheek) to find its rightful owner. AS it turns out, it was a marijuana delivery package of UPS.
The police put a post on Facebook that got over 500 likes and around 800 shares within 24 hours”Town of Geneva Police are hoping to find the rightful owner of this parcel that got returned to UPS last week,” the post begins, before providing a phone number and the name of an officer to contact if you believe the marijuana delivery was intended for you.
According to the post, the package was initially delivered to the incorrect address, and the listed return address appeared to be incorrect. However, a distinct odoralerted UPS that the recipient might regard the package as important.
The police have opened an investigation and denied commenting any further on the package. The Facebook post says, “Luckily there was a very distinct odor coming from the package, and UPS knew that there was significant value to the contents inside.”
There has been an update made to the post, which is a little humoristic. “We understand that nobody will be claiming this package and that marijuana is becoming much more accepted in this country. For those of you that are struggling to find the humor in this post or believe that taxpayer’s money is being wasted, don’t worry, it’s almost the weekend, and for the one person that has tried to claim it, we appreciate your humor!”
The legal aspect of this incident raises the question that if citizens can send marijuana delivery through UPS. The answer is a tricky yes. That is because their fourth amendment laws protect the citizen who sends UPS marijuana delivery.
The 4th amendment gives the people the right to seize and search situations by the authorities. It reads that;” The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated. No Warrants shall issue. But, upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
However, we would not suggest our readers mail marijuana because in certain situations, like what happened in Geneva could get you in trouble; there is a slim chance.
Even though cannabis has been legalized in the majority of the states. But, people still view it as something wrong despite all the medical evidence around it. That is most likely the reason that the rightful owner of the package has not stepped up yet and claimed their marijuana delivery.
