    the postal inspector at the Sussex Post Office branch contacted the sheriff’s department after the location got a suspicious 12 pound package set to be delivered to a home in the N6500 block of Bowling Green Street. The package ... was the second of its type to be sent to the same address in a week.
    That's pretty scary. They're tracking what kind & how many packages we get.
    Wonder what was suspicious?
    Do they have drug-sniffing dogs or machines that regularly inspect packages?
    Guess it's a good idea to spread out things you order from eBay or Amazon.

    Maybe that's why all my packages get delayed ! Or maybe the box had "careful, unlawful contents"

    I'll play devil's advocate on this one. It might not necessarily be a matter of them tracking packages. The same people run the same postal routes every day in Sussex (lifelong resident). It doesn't take an elaborate tracking scheme for a postal worker to remember delivering a suspicious package twice to the same place. I'm a deliveryman myself in the furniture industry and while I certainly don't track what houses I've been to in some computer database, I remember being at houses years after I've delivered there (even with a delivery range of the entire southeast quarter of WI). With routes as small as they are in Sussex, it's much more likely a matter of "Hey Bill, I've delivered two of these strange packages to the same place this week" than a matter of deliberate tracking/monitoring. As for what made them suspicious, who knows.

    the origin of the package may be a clue too,.
    Look at back in the mid 90's when overseas pharmacies were sending schedule-II drugs to people in the US without any prescription, Many an acquaintance got an empty package with a little love note from the DEA inside instead of what they were expecting. Of course this only started happening after a TV station ran a story on offshore pharmacies and the packages were coming in by the container all from the same place.

    No its like saying, "its so unsafe here, all of cars are being stolen" while talking to someone in say Mexico where 10s of thousands if people are murdered yearly

    Perspective is key. What may be the worst thing that ever happened to you may be ridiculously irrelevant compared to what happens to others.

    I bet everyone living in meth country is shaking their heads at this nonsense.

    Can I ask what you deem suspicious? Is a twelve pound box suspicious to you? I would venture to guess that there are millions of boxes weighing OVER twelve pounds that are delivered to homes everyday! So, why would someone need to involve the police in such a matter? I'll tell you why: people have been brainwashed into being little snitches for the government! I hate people that believe it is their duty to snitch on everything they BELIEVE is suspicious. We used to keep to ourselves and watch out for our neighbors; sadly, this is no longer the case in America!

    And what is the big deal with marijuana? I ask myself often why is something such as this illegal? Why is alcohol legal (which kills tens of thousands of people every year) and marijuana illegal (which kills nobody)? It is retarded I know, but I can tell you why: MONEY! The government makes more money off of marijuana when it is illegal then they would if it were legal. Bottom line!

    While I'm not going to cover the legality of said substance or death from marijuana, many people have been murdered over the growth and sale of it.

    When's the last time there was a marijuana related homicide?

    In any case, alcohol is more dangerous so this reasoning is at best hyperbole.

    Quick poll.

    Who knows someone convicted or victims of DUI, or convicted or victims of alcohol related crime (assault, DV, etc)?

    Who knows someone murdered, assaulted, or whatever due to marijuana traffic, sale, use, whatever?

    Exactly...

    Dog dogs are run through shipping centers once in a while. Could have been a hit off of one those. A small amount could have spilled. One might been able to smell the drug out side the box. Some one could have informed on them

    There could be a simple reason this person was being watched. Then they come up with a reason to protect the real one.

    Like I said, we don't know what made it suspicious. You're jumping to conclusions there, pal. If you're looking for the whole story, don't look to a Sussex Patch article. My response was directed towards MKEgal's post about them tracking our packages, not the suspiciousness (sic) thereof.

    So let me understand this for a moment; some of you are advocating as well as saying it wouldn't bother you if marijuana was legal....using the logic and comparative concepts of alcohol...

    So it is alright to get completely stoned and out of your head, and then jump in a vehicle? It's alright, for (you KNOW people already do it EVERY day) people to get high, which can last for hours, and show up to work?

    Especially if that work involves operating heavy machinery, dangerous equipment, tools or using chemicals?

    It is also much more difficult to determine when somebody is high. There are steps that can be taken to simply hide the visible effects.


    Alcohol has been legal and widespread for hundreds of years...its a part of almost every culture.

    It is legal in the United States, considering at the time there was no thought given to the idea of drunk driving since cars didn't exist, no thought was given to the dangerousness of operating heavy machinery and equipment. It didn't exist. There is a reason why places of employment that have these aspects as part of their business test for drugs.

    Also, talk about unprofessional. Weed smells like the inside of a horses a**. And yes, I know pretty well what that smells like. I drive carriage. You want to walk around smelling like that? And you want your house to smell like that? You want to talk to people you know with bloodshot eyes and dilated pupils and act like a fool because your brain activity is a 1/4 of what it should be? Makes sense...


    Better yet, you want to be a gun owner and smoke weed? Wow. Just, wow.


    Marijuana is destructive; it impairs your judgment sometimes on a level much WORSE than alcohol, including but not limited to, delusions and hallucinations.

    Marijuana, when smoked consistently, has damaging amounts of mercury in it. When smoked it actually makes the exposure worse, and we all know what hot mercury can do in pure form.

    So being stoned and drunk while the gov. does as they please is what you would have? Makes perfect sense.

    I suppose what I am trying to say is if you think problems with alcoholism are bad, how about the problems of legal marijuana use compounded with the combination of alcohol?

    Pandora's box begs to be opened, however that does not mean you should.

    Eve took a bite of forbidden fruit, and look where that led.

    Food for thought.
