A toy store owner in Southern California got a big surprise when he opened a suspicious package in the mail. A giant teddy bear stuffed with pot!Joshua Vecchione says he knew something wasn't right about the two-foot tall, blue bear he received on Christmas Eve. When he called the Orange County Sheriff's Department, they found three, vacuum sealed bags of marijuana stuffed inside.

Vecchione said, "And that's what's sad, they used an innocent toy to put drugs in."

The bear was addressed to a man in Colorado, but the return address was Vecchione's toy shop in Ladera Ranch.
