Well, coke addicts DO need their potassium!
The Independent reports that more than 20 bricks of cocaine, hidden in bundles of bananas, were delivered to grocery stores in Canada. The discovery was first reported in the town of Kelowna, Central Okanagan, British Columbia where the owner of a small grocery store found a dozen packages of coke tucked neatly inside his banana shipment.
The coke, originally from Colombia, was “probably” not meant for the Central Okanagan Valley, said Cpl Jeff Carroll of the Kelowna RCMP Drug Section, and likely arrived as a result of a missed pickup or bungled drug deal at some point along the way.
Someone’s gonna get in trouble!
Experts estimated that the packages would have introduced upwards of 800,000 doses of crack cocaine into the Canadian illicit drug market, according to Kelowna RCMP.
That’s enough for every resident in the City of Kelowna to receive nearly 6 doses each, the force added.
As one boingboing commenter reminded us…
