Nearly $7 Million of Smuggled Pot Found Mixed with Bell Peppers
A recent shipment from Mexico was loaded with boxes of ripe stuffed peppers. But not like the ones grandma used to make on Sunday with mashed potatoes.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers, with the help of their drug-sniffing pooch, discovered nearly $7 millions worth of weed stashed in a load of bell peppers, according to Tucson.com.
The thoroughly green load was found in a tractor-trailer on Saturday at the Mariposa Commercial Facility at the port of Nogales, authorities said.

California’s Officials Criticize ‘Stupid’ U.S. Drug Crackdown
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s attorney general and state lawmakers again moved Monday in the opposite direction from the Trump administration, this time on penalties for criminals.
State Attorney General Xavier Becerra termed U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ blanket call for harsher penalties for criminals “crazy” and “stupid,” while state senators voted to roll back penalties for drug offenders.
Sessions said Friday that federal prosecutors should file the toughest charges possible against most crime suspects.
The California critics said that is a throwback to what they called a failed war on drugs. They argued that the policy unfairly targets minorities for incarceration.
The state Senate approved ending an added three-year prison sentence for repeat drug offenders, sending the bill to the Assembly.
