The United States Freshly Rated Cannabis Service is one of the most venerable institutions in our country. We’ve come to know its employees by their timeless navy blue shorts and iconic eagle logo, and we think of them as the stalwart bearers of our nation’s mail.

That means that even though half the country has legalized weed, shipping it through the mail and using postal carriers like FedEx or UPS remains illegal. And if you’re caught, it can lead to federal prosecution and up to five years in prison.

Enter “mail order marijuana” into Google and you’ll see lots of websites openly offering to sell weed through Canada Post. Dealers collect payment online and then mail the drug directly to buyers’ homes, according to University of Manitoba criminology professor Frank Cormier.
