    A peace advocate and a founder of Vietnam Veterans of America is accused of trying to ship a package containing more than a pound of marijuana from a Fed Ex Kinko's location in the D.C.

    Charging documents show Robert O. Muller, a disabled war veteran, tried to ship the package last month, but store workers called police after detecting an apparently strong marijuana odor. The package was bound for a fellow Vietnam veteran living in Vermont.

    The documents list Muller's home address as a Ritz Carlton penthouse. Online court records show Muller was charged with attempted distribution of a controlled substance. He appeared in court this week and was released on personal recognizance.

    Muller referred comments to his attorney Friday, who did not immediately return phone messages.
