Drug dealers are great at lots of things — scaring people, breaking the law — but apparently their talents fall short when it comes to more simple tasks like addressing packages.

This could explain why German supermarket workers found an unexpected surprise in seemingly ordinary banana crates Monday.

The crates, which came from Colombia, arrived at five supermarkets in the Berlin area and contained 309 pounds of cocaine, according to the Associated Press.

German authorities confiscated the contraband and said Tuesday that smugglers likely made a “logistical mistake.” The drugs had an estimated street value of $8.2 million.

There is always money in the banana stand.

The drug problem will end if we only give the drug users all the drugs they want so that they can die off.  Why waste billions of dollars fighting the cartels and ruining the countrysides of other countries when the United States are biggest users of drugs.  Other countries do not bomb our tobacco fields and or our breweries.  Give the drug addicts all the drugs they want.  It is simple as that.  Crime will drop drastically.  Murders will fall and homelessness will drop drastically, because most of your homeless are alcohol and drug users.
