Border Patrol Finds Eight Garbage Bags Full of Marijuana in Trunk of Car

It's no surprise people try to smuggle marijuana across the U.S.-Mexico border. But this may be the laziest attempt ever.

Border patrol agents found eight garbage bags filled with marijuana in car attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. The cannabis weighed around 174 pounds and is worth around $86,000. Not much more info is known about the case, although the man driving the car was 34-years-old and is apparently from Apache Junction, Arizona.

This has to be the laziest smuggling attempt ever devised. First of all, the guy just stuck the marijuana into garbage bags. He made absolutely no attempt to hide them in some fancy case or in a fancy duffle bag. Just grabbed eight Hefty bags and stuffed it in.

And then he just put all this marijuana into his trunk. That's literally the first place police are going to look for illegal drugs. If you're going to smuggle drugs, at least get like a truck or van and customize it so you can hide your drugs better.

I mean, I'm no expert in drug smuggling, but it sort of seems like this guy wanted to get caught.

Lawmakers in Quebec failed to pass a bill that would have increased the minimum age for purchasing and consuming cannabis from 18 to 21 before the end of the legislative session. When the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) was elected to power in Quebec last year, they brought with them a promise to raise the legal age for buying and consuming recreational cannabis. Right now, anyone 18 or older can legally purchase cannabis in Quebec, which is tied with Alberta for having the lowest legal age for recreational cannabis.

Can we see some ID please?

You must be 19 years of age or older to enter.
