bought a couple of units last month,and while going though the boxes, they came across a box
containing human ashes.

That isn't all that strange to happen.  I know several people on these boards have found urns and such.  A few of the regulars in my area have also.  A few years ago a facility even found a body in a unit.

As for the weirdest item for me so far.  It would be the blue electric globe buddah from the first unit I purchased.  It's not really strange but is different from most of the items I've seen in units.  Of course my kids thought it was cool and want to keep it.

As I don't smoke crack, I don't know how weird this is but I found an old gas mask that had been fitted with a crack pipe. I guess they didn't want to waste any of the smoke.

Thats actually a more bong type thing. It is supposed to be used for more a hooka type thing, but I know people who have used it for weed only. I see these things all the time a a local flea/trade market.  I'd get one just because I think they are cool but I don't smoke down, well unless I ever find some in a locker.

Well, maybe it's not all that weird, but the last unit we bought had syringes everywhere.  We found maybe 40 or so in probably 8 or 10 different places.  Fortunately they were all capped.  Used, but at least they recapped them.

I bought a locker a year or two ago and it was definitely a "tweakers" unit.  There was a nice standard airline size suitcase in it that rattled when I shook it and when I opened it up, it was completely full of used needles!  Ick!

Brand new human and synthetic hair extentions for black ladies. Not really weird, but a balding middle aged white guy selling them is.

Oh geez. What'd you do with it? Take it to a hospital (they'd probably know what to do with the needles)?
