When Brooklyn neighborhood website CrownHeights.info reported on April 1 that a kosher grocery store in the Jewish enclave had received in the mail 10 bags of cannabis hidden in vacuum-sealed plastic containers of peanut butter—well, we thought it was an April Fool joke.
But the website’s source was the previous day’s New York Post, and it actually looks pretty legit.
The grocery, Kahan’s Superette on Kingston Ave., apparently reported the find to the police.
“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.
“I have no idea where it came from. It was just dropped off,” a worker at the store told the Post.
The store sells such fare as kosher chicken, bagels, cream cheese and fresh salmon, according to its Facebook page. Nobody seems to have asked if Kahan’s had ordered a shipment of peanut butter.
CrownHeights.info reported that a similar incident occurred at a different Kingston Ave. shop—Crown Kosher Meat—almost exactly two years ago, when the owner received a Fed Ex delivery of over 25 pounds of “distribution grade marijuana.”
Crown Heights is a neighborhood where orthodox Jews and Afro-Caribbeans co-exist—for the most part peacefully, though the neighborhood was the site of violent riots in 1991. The cops aren’t treating the owners of Kahan’s Superette as suspects, but we can’t help but wonder if they would have the same attitude if the pot had arrived at a Black-owned business.
In any case, a cannabis-peanut butter connection is a much more positive vibe than the “Pizza Connection” that brought massive amounts of heroin into New York City back in the ’80s.
