According to the report, Sheriffs were going through the incoming mail, when they received a package that “smelled funny.”  What they found was a book from Barnes and Noble that had three joints and 13 matches tucked into the spine of the book.  The woman was arrested and is facing a maximum of 3½ years in jail.
