Border Patrol agents recently pulled over a big rig in Arizona that had about 1,700 pounds of marijuana hidden among its shipment of produce.
Agents working at the Interstate 19 checkpoint in Nogales referred a tractor-trailer for secondary inspection Monday.
Upon further investigation, they discovered 73 bundles of marijuana mixed within crates of pumpkins and chili peppers.
As long as prohibition exists, banned products will continue to flow into the U.S. That’s where the biggest market is, and prohibition continues to keep prices high. This is especially true of cannabis, the most-used illegal drug in the world. No matter what the risk, the cash to be made will continue to entice people to traffic it.
It’s so bizarre to see marijuana coming in in this fashion, when big weed trucks should be coming over the border legally and the profits could be going to the U.S. government and legitimate businesses instead of to the cartels in Mexico.
We’ve tried The War on Drugs and it has failed. How much longer will we continue down this same road?
