WASHINGTON (AP) - 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 District of Columbia.

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.
