SEATTLE, WA — The Seattle Police Department are reminding residents that thrift stores are not allowed to re-sell donated bags of marijuana, following a the discovery of 2.5 pounds of pot at a thrift store in North Seattle.

“Donating to thrift shops is a terrific way to give a second life to your well-loved velcro sneakers, keyboards or flannel zebra jammies,” the Seattle Police Department said in a press release issued Friday.  “However, thrift stores cannot accept the following items: tires, soiled mattresses, laptops, or large bags of marijuana.”

Last Thursday afternoon, a thrift store employee in North Seattle called police after finding the pot in the store’s donation bin, according to police.

The employee was removing items from the bin near N. 100th Street and Aurora Ave N. at about 1 pm, when he found a garbage bag containing 2.5 pounds of marijuana.

An officer took the marijuana and placed it into evidence for destruction.

There is no word if any Doritos were included in the donation.

    Washington obviously needs to revise its law to provide for such donations in the future. This represents a valuable resource for ill patients, as well as considerable investment in cultivation and processing by the donor. They have soup kitchens to serve the needy. Why not bud kitchens?
