  • Sinus Infection Actually Baggie of Weed Man Put Up Nose 18 Years Ago (REAL)

A 48-year-old guy in Australia recently went to the doctor because he had never-ending sinus infections and headaches.

On the scan was a, "firm gray mass" in his nasal cavity. They went in and extracted it. To their surprise, that mass was a small bag of weed. Turns out the guy snorted the bag 18 years earlier when he was trying to smuggle it into jail but it never came out, so he just assumed it had fallen down his throat and he forgot all about it. After the doctors removed it, his health problems cleared up.
