Police seize 1,200 pounds of pot in spinach cans
Stories like this one always bring a tear to my eye. New Mexico Police found 12,000 pounds of weed packed inside cans that had spinach labels on them.
Philly – An inspector noticed that only a few of the cans were labeled and that the weight printed on the side of the can didn’t match the actual weight. A closer look during last Friday’s bust revealed the canned drugs, which were worth an estimated $1.5 million.
The four pallets of cans were being transported along with fresh produce.
The 50-year-old truck driver said he was on his way from California to the East Coast. The driver and the pot were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Let this be a lesson to anyone who is considering smuggling drugs into the country. This may be a decent way of doing it but put the labels on all of the cans and put spinach on top and below the cans so everything will look ok. Not that you would smuggle drugs or anything.. ;-).
Hopefully this country changes the laws and decriminalize marijuana already so that we don’t have to give up all that good weed to crooked cops. Ugh. They are the only real winners in the war on drugs.
