If you have junk you need to get rid of; Goodwill is the place to go. But of course, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. On Monday, a Goodwill in Monroe, Washington received a not-so-ordinary donation. While sorting through donations, employees scored a cooler full of weed. Not just a couple grams, but five whole bags full. Talk about a surprise.

You never know what you’re going to find at Goodwill. From old-school kicks to vintage silverware, the possibilities are endless.

It’s not every day one lands upon a bunch of weed, though. However, that’s what was donated to a Goodwill in Monroe, Washington on Monday.

Inside a cooler were five large bags of pure ganja. Employees discovered the weed while sorting through donations that day. So, they decided to call the cops,

We went over there and they opened the lid and in there was five large bags of marijuana. Normally when we go there, it is for a shoplifter, but not anything like this.

Police attempted to track down the cooler’s owner, but the mission was unsuccessful since they didn’t know if it was donated at this location or at a Goodwill trailer that sits in another town.

Meanwhile, a lot of people on social media are claiming the cooler is theirs. According to Debbie Willis of the Monroe Police Department, no one has yet to fetch it, though,

However there are many people on social media claiming it’s theirs, but we have yet to have one walk through the door.

Believe it or not, pot isn’t the strangest contribution to come through Goodwill’s doors. In fact, people commonly leave the most random of things behind with their donated goods,

This is a reminder to check your purse, pockets, or cooler to make sure you’re donating the items you mean to.

According to Katherine Boury, a spokesperson for Goodwill, employees once came across three human skulls,

In 2014, three human skulls were found. We worked with authorities to track down the origin of the Native American skull for proper burial.

Two of the skulls had been used for medical research, while the other one was a Native American skull that was more than 100 years old.

So, what’s the pending date of the donated cannabis? According to Willis, it’s only a moment of time before it goes to waste,

It’s sitting in our evidence, waiting yearly burn of that type of evidence.

At the present time, it’s legal in Washington to possess once ounce of cannabis if you’re 21 and over. The donated stash was 60 times over that limit.
