Drug traffickers shot 85 lbs. of pot into US with a cannon, say agents12/12/2012
Proving that a career in drug trafficking requires heaps of creativity, smugglers used a cannon to fire 33 cans of cannabis worth around $42,500 over the Mexican border and into Arizona. U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered the stash near the Colorado River and deduced they'd been shot 500 feet thanks to a nearby pneumatic-powered cannon and a carbon dioxide tank. This plan gets high marks for originality and resourcefulness, but just like the doomed hair-weave cocaine smugglers, it failed. Potheads in the legally hazy states of Washington and Colorado will be crushed to hear that nary a spliff was smoked, and all 85 pounds of canned weed were destroyed. [Source]
