Drugs Stashed in Peanut Butter Delivered to Kahan’s

Kahan’s Superette, a kosher food grocery store in Crown Heights, found itself in a sticky situation when 10 bags of marijuana — stashed inside vacuum-sealed bags of peanut butter — showed up in the mail. A similar incident occurred at a different Kingston Ave. establishment two years earlier.

From the NY Post:

The owner of Kahan’s Superette told cops whoever mailed the mystery package must have made a mistake — because he doesn’t sell those kind of treats, the sources said.

“It wasn’t anything that they asked for,” a police source said.

The bizarre package arrived at the food market on Kingston Avenue near Union Street in Crown Heights at 4 p.m. on Monday, the police sources said.

“Wrong delivery address results in the seizure of 10 large bags of marijuana wrapped in peanut butter,” the 71st Precinct tweeted, along with a photo of the gooey mess on Monday.

The marijuana, which was delivered by the USPS, was wrapped in plastic bags then covered in peanut butter.

A similar incident occurred to a different Kingston Ave. Shop – Crown Kosher Meat – almost exactly two years ago, when the owner received a Fedex delivery of over 25lbs of distribution grade marijuana.

      So what if the peanut butter is kitniyos? It’s not intended to be eaten, so there’s no problem. One is allowed to possess kitniyos and benefit from it on Pesach.

  • be honest...

    Yossi and you care more about kinyot than the bad reputation of a kosher place being in a sticky situation like this? Maybe this kahans are involved in this sticky situation. Such amounts aren’t just delivered by mistake and less than a year ago police arrested 3-4 chabadniks with a dense quantity of MJ….

    • Lighten up

      For your sake and for the sake of those around you, lighten up. He was just joking

    • obvious

      Obviously the owner wouldnt buy ten bags of marijuana and then call the police on himself.

    • Disgusted

      The Kahans are ehrliche people with a sterling reputation. How can you even say such a terrible thing about fellow Yidden who are known to be an honest, generous, reputable family running a small grocery. Not only do you owe them an apology, you need to ask mechila for what you said.

  • former employee

    Why would anyone assume the worst of another Jew?! More than likely, it was a delivery man or shelf stocker, not the owners! Especially considering the previous incident in another establishment. Gut Yom Tov!

    just a thought, that its not the biggest worry about drugs. The real hard drugs are what are dangerous and out of control. just saying

  • SB

    The failed war on drugs. The precinct should focus its precious resources on violent criminals. This just shows what a joke of a police force we have in this country .

  • The cops are thinking...

    Look at the look on the cops faces, they’re thinking, wait ’till we get this back to the station house, we’ll smoke the weed and then eat the peanut butter, bingo :)

  • Weed is bigematria high

    Which is what we will all be when moshiach comes…so this must be a sign that the moshiach is on its way!! woohoo!

    Response to #13 – That joke of a police force as you
