The Highway Patrol Says Santa Wouldn't Like Weed Cookies. We Beg To Differ.

Santa is going to need to find another stash of cookies.

Yesterday we heard the saga of the elderly couple arrested for carrying 60 pounds of weed that they said was for "Christmas gifts". Now we take you to a similar story which unfolded in Lafayette County, Missouri.

According to The Kansas City Star, The Missouri Highway Patrol pulled over a U-Haul and found 23.2 pounds of weed cookies, more than 4 pounds of marijuana flower, and a gun. The Highway Patrol tweeted about their haul:

One thing we'd like to nitpick? The assertion that "These are NOT the kind of cookies Santa wants! #NotSantasCookies". We actually spoke to Santa Claus. He'd very much appreciate them:

In any event, the two men driving the U-Haul were arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and for illegal use of a firearm. They haven't been formally charged.

Bernadette McCready, 42, of Airdrie, Scotland, said she was prevented from accessing vital health services once she revealed her cannabis use. McCready had gone to the Royal Alexandra Hospital last June for a surgery. However, physicians told her she needed to leave after she disclosed she had been using cannabis oil to help treat symptoms related to a hysterectomy she had in 2012.

Can we see some ID please?
