Tunnel and 30 Tons of Pot Found on Border

Authorities have discovered approximately 30 tons of marijuana that were part of a smuggling operation using a tunnel under the California-Mexico border.

From CNN:

The 600-yard tunnel — which features a rail system, lighting and ventilation — connects a warehouse in Tijuana with one in the Otay Mesa industrial area of San Diego, said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lauren Mack.

About 26 tons of marijuana had been transported through the tunnel to San Diego, and 10 of those tons were intercepted Tuesday by authorities as a tractor trailer was transporting the load from the Otay Mesa warehouse, officials said. About five tons were found by the Mexican military inside the Tijuana warehouse and the tunnel, officials said.

    Not surprised. This is every day. Until the U.S. has no demand for the pot it will get worse.

  2. I don’t see why they couldn’t just close off one end of the tunnel, preferably the US side,and light up that 30 tons of pot. One huge bong! Sit and wait for all the members of the cartel to come inhale their goods blowing in the wind, and have a major mass arrest of the stoned gangsters. Lol!
