Food Addict: Food Items Used to Smuggle Drugs

Cucumbers

When will these guys learn that disguising their drugs as boxes of fresh produce simply doesn’t work. That’s a rhetorical question. Because, we’re guessing they’ll never learn.

Back in 2014, a group of San Diego border guards were patrolling the Otay Mesa crossing that separates the U.S. from Tijuana. As per usual, they conducted a routine inspection on a shipment of cucumbers. To be fair, they did find cucumbers. They also found enough marijuana to make Snoop Dogg blush. How much is that? Well, how does $1.5 million worth sound?
