Though cannabis use among the youngins has steadily decreased over the past two decades, there are more than likely quite a few high school students who wish they had gotten to a package delivered on Monday. the contents of the package give new meaning to the phrase high school.”
The delivery was made from California to Carver High School in southeast Atlanta, around lunchtime. One of the staff members in the registrar’s office opened the package and found two pounds of bud inside. It is unclear who the intended recipient was, but ATL police are on the case. “The address on the package is not clear. The tracking number is clear, and we’re following some leads on that but the actual name is not clear,” Atlanta Police Department Sgt. Warren Pickard told WSB-TV 2 Atlanta. “All avenues in the investigation are being looked at. We’re not ruling anything out. It was delivered to the school. That’s concerning enough for us.”
The community fears what the pot pack implies. According to reports:
Neighbor Nicole Sims says this is essentially drug trafficking through schools.
“That really surprises me, how that could happen? I mean don’t they open up the boxes at the post office to see what the contents are before they reach the schools?” neighbor Sabrina Sims said.
The practice of sending sticky Cali trees out across the country through the mail is a common practice these days. This is usually done by using obscure mailing and return addresses, as not to implicate anyone directly. It doesn’t necessarily mean that anyone at the school is involved. The school’s address could have been used as a pickup point for someone else, who was supposed to grab it before it was taken in. Who knows?
