Video Claims Mail Staff 'Accidentally' Ate THC Brownies at Work

Britain's Royal Mail has launched an investigation into a video that purportedly shows postal workers in London, England, "high" at work after "accidentally" eating THC brownies, according to multiple reports.

The video, which was posted to a since-deleted Instagram account, was obtained by LadBible. In the video, uniformed workers are seen struggling to walk and form coherent sentences as they apparently struggle with the side effects of the weed brownies.

"Today almost all the posties in Clapham accidentally ate hash brownies and [I] had to pick them up one by one because they were so high," read the video's text overlay. Behind the text is an image of a box that reads: "Edibles by Pablo Chocobar."

At one point in the footage, a postal worker can be seen struggling to walk with a mail trolley.

"You alright?" someone asked the postal worker. "Let me take the trolley."

In another frame, a staff member can be heard stumbling over their words as they try to speak to the person recording.

"One guy said he was walking to a door and thought he was walking forever," read another line of text. "Say a prayer for [redacted] right now, hopefully, he is asleep or he is singing with unicorns."

According to the video, the brownies were taken from an unclaimed package and were consumed between 5:30 and 7:30 a.m.

"We had a delivery of them with no return address and the house was empty and they were in our office for a month so we opened [them] and they got given out," stated the video's final line of text.

Cannabis is considered a Class B drug in the UK, said The Independent. Those found in possession of the drug could face up to five years in prison and/or a fine.

Furthermore, those caught supplying or producing the drug could face a life sentence, "in addition to an unlimited fine," The Independent explained.

In 2018, however, the UK deemed it legal for "expert doctors" to "issue prescriptions for cannabis-based medicines when they agree that their patients could benefit from this treatment."

The government emphasized that decisions to prescribe cannabis-based products must be done "on a case-by-case basis, and only when the patient has an unmet special clinical need that cannot be met by licensed products," said The Independent.

It's not clear what will happen, if anything, to the postal workers in the since-deleted Instagram video. However, a spokesperson for Royal Mail told The Guardian that they are "taking this matter very seriously."

"We have commenced an investigation, which will determine whether any further action, including disciplinary action, might be taken. We are also reminding all staff at the delivery office of the correct procedures for dealing with items with no address for delivery or return," the spokesperson added.
