Feds Intercept 11 Pounds of California Weed En Route to New York Publishing House

Someone in the world of New York publishing is a pretty unhappy camper today. Federal agents in San Diego just intercepted a package with 11 pounds of weed intended for Macmillan’s St. Martin’s Press offices. According to The Smoking Gun, the package was addressed to a fictional employee named Karen Wright. Our cousins at Galleycat ran a search of the nom de plume in question, but failed to turn up any literary allusions which might help reveal the intended recipient.

Estimates are the weed was worth about $70,000 dollars.
