Marijuana is known for its medicinal uses but did you know that in case of an emergency landing you can also use it as a flotation device?!
A drug smuggler was caught recently allegedly using a duffle bag full of weed as a makeshift boogie board to try and swim his way into the United States. I knew marijuana was a magical plant but I had no idea just how magical it really was.
According to NBC San Diego, the unidentified man was spotted by U.S. Border Patrol Agents and was arrested approximately 600 yards from shore north of the U.S.-Mexico border.
The man was caught with over $23,000 worth of marijuana. The confiscated bundles weighed in at more than 50 pounds, which was roughly the same amount of weed that can be found at your typical Rush concert.
Seems like a lot of risk for a relatively small amount of money. I mean, it would have been easier to just grow it in the U.S. and probably more profitable too. Er, not that I’d know or anything. But maybe he just needed a little extra cash to keep his head above water.
