Seattle police want to remind everyone that thrift stores can't resell donated bags of marijuana.
The department put a notice on their website on Friday to helpfully remind the public of the rules after employees at a thrift store in North Seattle found a large bag of marijuana in the donation bin.
In the notice, police say: "Donating to thrift shops is a terrific way to give a second life to your well-loved Velcro sneakers, keyboards or flannel zebra jammies." However, they say tyres, soiled mattresses, laptops and large bags of marijuana cannot be accepted.
A thrift store employee called police on Thursday afternoon to say he found a garbage bag containing 2.5 pounds of marijuana in the store's donation bin. An officer confiscated the marijuana and put it into evidence for destruction.
