Man Waiting for Tools Gets Brick of Marijuana

2009, Feb 17th

Brick of PotDenton, Texas — A man in Denton, Texas who was expecting a shipment of tools instead received a 30-pound brick of marijuana that police say is worth more than $10,000.

Officer Ryan Grelle says the man opened the box Monday night, realized it contained drugs and contacted police.

The package from the Pharr area was handled by UPS in McAllen on Jan. 6. and apparently was intended for a Dallas address.

The Denton Record-Chronicle reports no such address exists in Dallas, so the package wound up 40 miles to the northwest at the similar address in Denton.

Welcome to Oaksterdam University, a new trade school where “higher education” takes on a whole new meaning.

The school prepares people for jobs in California’s thriving medical marijuana industry.

For $200 and the cost of two required textbooks, students learn how to cultivate and cook with cannabis, study which strains of pot are best for certain ailments, and are instructed in the legalities of a business that is against the law in the eyes of the federal government.

The only prerequisite for the course is a Politics/Legal Issues 101 class.
