Customs nabs woman at Sanford airport trying to bring magic mushrooms into the country


  • via
If you were waiting for your friendly neighborhood hookup to bring you that psychedelic mushroom grow kit you asked about recently, take note: U.S. Customs and Border Protection emailed today to let us know that it totally nabbed a 37-year-old woman trying to smuggle "approximately three ounces" of marijuana, hashish, marijuana cookies and psychedelic mushroom kits in her luggage on July 6. She was returning to the U.S. from Amsterdam, and she flew into the Sanford airport, which she probably thought was a safe bet because who would think anybody would smuggle drugs into the country there? 

CBP officers arrested the woman and turned over the contraband to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Take that, hippies.
