You Can Put Your Weed In It

Great story here from the Bay Area…

A number of kids got Fun Size Snickers bars that were packed with marijuana. In under two days, authorities figured out what happened:

A package arrived at a post office and was undeliverable and had no return address. Upon opening the package, they found candy. Seemed innocent enough, so the USPS donated the candy to a charity to distribute on Halloween. The charity gave the Snickers to a woman who in turn passed them out to kids.

Perhaps the oddest part of this story is that it took place in a town called “Hercules.” (They had no problems over in Xena.) -ram

This is a bit off-topic, but isn't "Gummo" supposed to take place in Xenia, Ohio? That's kind of like Xena.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
