It's not outer space that has NASA seeing stars. It's cocaine!

There was no failure to launch at a NASA this week, as a worker discovered a bag of cocaine outside a bathroom in a secure part of a space shuttle hangar at Florida's Kennedy Space Center. Despite being all spaced-out, NASA has a zero-tolerance drug policy (and is now drug testing everyone with access to the area), so it's an extra odd place to find some dope. Perhaps not the strangest or funniest, though. Check out some of the most memorable places (that don't involve dead baby corpses) where drugs have been discovered.

openphotonet_cashbox - ATM3 final

In an ATM, February 2008
• An 18-year-old woman in Bremerton, WA accidentally placed her bag of meth in a deposit envelope instead of her money and tried to deposit it at a Kitsap Credit Union ATM. Silly junkie! Depositing your meth is the how you go through withdrawal!

0119-belly-rolls-fat_at

In fat rolls, September 2009
• A 5-foot, 220-lb. woman in Pontiac, MI, who'd been sentenced to jail time at her court hearing, tried to sneak her stash in with her by tucking it in some sweaty blubber—completely overlooking the standard strip search. Suddenly smuggling dope in through your anus seem less gross.

Marijuana in Flower Pot

In a public flower pot, September 2009
• Practical jokers in Millville, NJ put planted marijuana in a flower pot hanging from a lamppost on...wait for it...High St. Police eventually noticed the three-foot-tall plants sticking out and took them down, but it was high-larious while it lasted.

Dunkin Donuts

In front of a donut shop, September 2009
• A man, who was apparently unaware of the strong bond between police and pastries, got caught dealing heroin out of a Marlboro Menthol cigarette pack in front of the local Dunkin Donuts in Easton, PA. Hey, some people like their donuts with sprinkles of heroin on top.

Shark Cocaine

In shark corpses, June 2009
• Drug gangs in Mexico City, Mexico tried to conceal more than a ton of cocaine slabs destined for the U.S. in the frozen corpses of sharks. When Naval officers discovered the stash, those responsible for the shipment claimed the drugs were a conserving agent. Coke—it does a shark body good!

Build-A-Bear big

In stuffed animals, August 2009
• You know how they make teddy bears so cuddly? They slice the cute lil' fuckers open and stuff 'em full of heroin! At least that's what a smack ring in the Bronx, NY did, filling Build-A-Bear dolls with dope before delivering them to distributors. With so much junk coursing through their bodies, we guess you could call them "unsteady bears"!

Rex The Labrador

In dogs, July 2004
• Dogs may be man's best friend, but we don't think they're cool with drug dealers surgically inserting eleven containers of cocaine in them to smuggle from Colombia to the UK, as a northwest London couple did to some sweet pooches. Sometimes it's absolutely right to bite the hand that feeds you.

Coke in artichoke big

In a shipment of artichokes, September 2009
• In Peru, police uncovered four tons of high-grade liquid cocaine hidden amongst 8,000 cans of artichokes at the port of Callao. That's one way to get kids to eat their vegetables.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
plaster cast

In a cast, March 2009
• A 66-year-old Chilean man, who had two fractured bones below the knee, tried to smuggle cocaine into Barcelona in his cast made out of cocaine! The man couldn't catch a break, in part because he was also hiding coke in his luggage, a six-pack of beer, and the aluminum legs of two stools.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Drug Submarine big

In a submarine, October 2009
• In Guatemalan waters off the Central American Pacific coast, U.S. anti-drug agents and the Guatemalan Army intercepted three Colombians and a Mexican in a small submarine carrying ten tons of cocaine. That's even more drugs than the Beatles fit in their yellow submarine!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jesus

In a religious statue, May 2008
• U.S. customs officials with drug-sniffing dogs seized a 6.6-pound statue of Jesus Christ, which a Mexican woman had in the trunk of her car. It turned out God's son was made from a mixture of plaster and cocaine, which gives a whole new meaning to the "most high."
