A couple from Orlando, Fla., recently received an Amazon order of plastic storage bins, but inside of those containers was an unexpected gift: 65 pounds of marijuana.
“We love Amazon and do a lot of shopping on Amazon,” said one of the customers, who wants to remain anonymous, according to WFTV9, a local ABC affiliate. “They were extremely heavy, heavier than you would think from ordering four empty bins.”
Once the couple opened the package, they smelled an intense cannabis smell.
Police eventually came to the house to survey the situation. At first, they did not believe what the couple alleged. Now, police are launching an investigation.

The couple felt it was necessary to sleep elsewhere for a few days out of fear someone would break into their home looking for the potent package.
“There was no concern for a customer’s safety,” the shopper said, reports WFTV9. “I mean, this could have turned into a worst-case scenario.”
She reportedly went back and forth with Amazon for roughly a month, but the company failed to answer why the large amount of cannabis was sent to them. After awhile, the couple received an email with message, “I am unable to do anything else at this time” along with a $150 gift card.
Amazon, a tech conglomerate with a massive e-commerce and distribution infrastructure, makes a lot of shipments on a daily basis, so making a mistake here or there is almost inevitable. (RELATED: Amazon Wants Flying Warehouses Now)
A couple from New Hampshire reportedly opened a box from Amazon in July, and instead of seeing the products they ordered, they found a bag of medical waste.
When The Daily Caller News Foundation wrote the article “Amazon Wants To Be Your Drug Dealer,” this isn’t exactly what most people had in mind.
Amazon did not respond to TheDCNF’s request for comment by time of publication.
