BELLINGHAM - A rogue package filled with weed made its way to a Bellingham business Saturday, March 29, when the United States Postal Service delivered a box marked "return to sender, unable to forward" to its labeled return address, according to police.
As it turned out, the business, located in the 2400 block of James Street, had not tried to mail the contents - an estimated 80 grams of marijuana, Bellingham Police Sgt. Carr Lanham said.
Though legal in Washington, weed remains illegal at the federal level, and is not a substance cleared to be sent through the post.
No one at the business had any idea who might have listed their address on the package, Lanham said. They alerted police immediately, and the package was impounded for destruction.
The suspected marijuana mailer remained unknown as of Sunday, March 30.
