I'm guessing that even if police could not open such an envelope on the spot, they could impound it and/or detain you until:

a) They brought in drug-sniffing dogs to examine the envelope.

b) They obtained a search warrant to open the envelope.

And then you'd possibly be facing a federal charge of shipping controlled substances through the mail in addition to simple possession.
