The Royal Mail has launched an investigation after footage shared online appeared to show a bunch of posties accidentally tucking into some hash brownies at work.
Clips posted on Instagram claimed the brownies were sent out to an empty property and had no return address, so after a month they were opened up and given to staff, who were completely unaware they contained cannabis.
An Instagram account, which has since been deleted, shared the video in which one postman could be seen looking fairly disorientated as he attempted to walk down a south London street, eventually being helped by a colleague.
A caption on the video, overlaid on an image of the parcel marked ‘Edibles by Pablo Chocobar’, read: “Today almost all the posties in Clapham accidentally ate hash brownies and I had to pick them up one by one ‘cause they were so high.”
The video explained: “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. They were eaten between 5.30-7.30am.”
The footage showed a postman staggering towards a Royal Mail trolley in the road while another postman says: “You alright? Let me take the trolley.”
Someone else can be heard to say: “You're just really high.”
The clip then cuts to the postie sitting in a chair as he stumbles over his words and tells his coworker: “I had four in all.”
Another caption appeared on the video which read: “One guy said he was walking to a door and thought he was walking forever.
“Say a prayer for him right now, hopefully he is asleep or he is singing with unicorns.”
The Royal Mail has now said it had launched an investigation into the incident.
In a statement to LADbible, the Royal Mail said: “Royal Mail expects the highest standards of behaviour from our people at all times. We 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.”
