$24000 Worth of Marijuana Found in Cooler Donated to Goodwill in Washington

Police are reviewing surveillance footage in hopes they can find a suspect.

While marijuana is legal in the state of Washington, adults can only purchase and possess up to 1 ounce of weed. The sale, distribution, and cultivation of marijuana remain a federal offense.

The police added that Goodwill is now examining its surveillance video to determine who dropped good ol' Weed Cooler off, so it seems as though Goodwill won't be celebrating 4/20 with the donation.


"Employees [were] surprised when they opened the lid", Monroe police wrote over Twitter.

"There are many people on social media claiming it's theirs", Willis said, "but we have yet to have one walk through the door".

'This is a reminder to check your purse, pockets, or cooler to make sure you're donating the items you mean to, ' Katherine Boury, a spokesperson for Goodwill said to CNN.


The cooler was found to contain multiple baggies containing a total 3.75 pounds of marijuana, which police estimated had a $24,000 street value.

The bags of marijuana found in the cooler, that somebody either purposefully donated or donated by accident, will be logged as evidence and will stay there for up to six months.

Staff stumbled upon the stash on Monday morning while sorting through donations and promptly called the cops, who came over to take the drugs away.


'We worked with authorities to track down the origin of the Native American skull for proper burial'.
