PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) ? A Massachusetts woman has sued FedEx, claiming the company mistakenly sent her a package containing seven pounds of marijuana, then gave her address to the intended recipients, who later showed up at her door.

Maryangela Tobin of Plymouth said in the suit filed Feb. 12 that by disclosing her address, the company violated state privacy laws and put herself and her children in danger.

"I feel like the safety of my daughters and myself was invaded and it makes things complicated," she told WBZ-TV. "I walk into my house first every time, my kids don't."

Tobin said she thought the package was a birthday present for her daughter, because when she opened it, she found candles, pixie sticks and peppermint. There was also something she thought was potpourri, but it was marijuana.

Tobin said that about an hour later, a man knocked on her door looking for the package, while two men sat in a vehicle in her driveway, waiting. She said she didn't have it, and bolted and slammed the door. Tobin claims FedEx gave out her address, which led the men to her home.

Police made an arrest, but Tobin said now she's worried about retribution.

Great, so while you are in your house, your kids are standing outside out of your sight ready for the guy hiding beside your house to run up grab them and get away without you being a block of any way. Smart woman.

Unless fedex confirmed, I don't believe fedex gave out the address. I believe the sender sent it to an address, and these people were there to pick up the package. It is common, from what I remember, for these dealers to send to an abandoned or not very active house and have their carriers pick up at these houses when they have been left on the doorstep. They picked the wrong house this time. I think the lady needs to get a grip and realize her house was targeted for some reason or another, bad neighborhood, ok neighborhood, little or no activity during fedex drop hours, etc.

What? So she should send them into the house first, without knowing if anyone is in there?

No, she should go in with them at the same time. That way she is with them at all times. That's what she should do.

Ugh. All she meant was that she steps into the house first.

What does e address label say? Maybe the dealers sent it to her house, how else would FedEx know where they misdelivered it?
