A new report has confirmed that United States Postal Service Inspectors were busy tracking down Colorado marijuana packages that were being sent to and from the state in 2016.

As WWMT (Grand Rapids) reports, a heavily-redacted report obtained through the Freedom of Information Act reveals that the USPS is aware of the large amounts of marijuana being shipped through the mail – 34,000 pounds of it were seized in 2015, to say nothing of the amount that went through without being seized. But their methods for dealing with it are sorely lacking.
An audit of the U.S. Postal Service calls for new policies to secure marijuana found in the mail. The audit, finished in October 2016, was based upon visits to seven USPS facilities earlier in the year. It found packages containing marijuana in places like an unlocked cage, an unlocked office and on an unguarded table.
