The cannabis was found during a routine check of all property being posted into the prison.
"The drug dog indicated the presence of drugs in the package and after inspection by staff, the shoes inside were found to contain cannabis concealed within a rubber glove, which was smeared in vegemite or marmite," prison manager George Massingham said.
"Our drug dogs are trained to detect certain odours down to parts per trillion, so it takes a bit more than sandwich spread, however strong smelling to fool them," he said.
It's clear from the report that George doesn't know the difference, but to me, it's like the difference between eating chalk and cheese. My daughter's confused about which is the superior product, but at least can tell them apart...
Vegemite? Marmite? Neither? Or both? I truly am interested in your thoughts, even though I might not respect them
