Hapless Pot Smugglers from North of the Border
Usually our tales of hapless pot smugglers involve our southern border and include surfboards. This time around - in honor of Canada Day - we train our sites to our northern border.
A couple was arrested at the Niagara Falls border crossing for trying to smuggle an unspecified quantity of marijuana in the United States. Cops found five vacuum sealed bags secreted in the spare tire of the lovebirds car.
You figure that if you are going to go through the trouble of taking a tire off the rim, packing said tire full of weed and putting the tire back on the wheel you'd have the sack to be calm and cool at the border. Maybe the cops got suspicious when they saw all the cheesie dust on the wheel.
Happy Canada Day you crazy Canucks!
