Don't Ship Pot to a Movie Studio ⇒

Helen Freund for The New York Post:

Police said members of the 114th Precinct Anti-Crime unit responded to Kaufman Studios on 36th Avenue in Queens on Sep. 6 after the building’s security personnel intercepted two big cardboard boxes stuffed to the brim with pot. The boxes contained nine sealed plastic pouches of marijuana guessed to weigh around 10 pounds in total.

The intended recipient of the pot-filled parcels, Brooklyn resident Lowell Schulman, 53, admitted to cops that he had been awaiting the drugs but that he had been expecting a much lighter load.

Kaufman is where they film Sesame Street and many other major NYC productions. Pro-tip: send your big box of weed somewhere else.
