Funky Salad: Nearly 2 Tons of Weed Disguised as Lettuce Seized at Texas Border
Here are some funky salad greens that almost made it to our dinner tables—5,754 packages of lettuce containing nearly two tons of weed.
Alas, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers didn’t appreciate the healthy efforts of the salad smugglers.
Instead the CBP nabbed a truck hauling the pungent Mexican “produce” on the aptly named Laredo-Colombia Solidarity International Bridge.
The phony lettuce-like bundles were sniffed out by a K-9 team, imaging, then a physical inspection of the trailer.

Nevada launches sales of legal recreational marijuana
LAS VEGAS — Nevada has become the fifth state in the U.S. with stores selling marijuana for recreational purposes.
People began buying pot early Saturday, just months after voters approved legalization in November. It’s the fastest turnaround from the ballot box to retail sales in the nation.
Those 21 and older with a valid ID can buy up to an ounce of pot. The millions of tourists who visit Las Vegas and other Nevada cities every year are expected to make nearly two of every three pot purchases.
The Bubble Gum originated in Indiana in the 1970s. After making the rounds in the States, the genetics were taken to Holland during the 1990s, where a stable interbred variety was developed. Named Bubble Gum from the start, this variety quickly acquired a reputation for its sweetness, so much that the name "Bubble Gum" has been widely borrowed for all sorts of seeds and weed. The winner of many accolades, Bubble Gum has placed repeatedly in the High Times Cannabis Cup: 3rd place in 1994 for best coffeeshop product, 2nd place for best bioproduct and 2nd for the overall Cannabis Cup in 1995, and 2nd place again in 1999 for the overall Cannabis Cup.
Massachusetts: Talks on Revamped Pot Bill Appear to Stall as Deadline Nears
BOSTON (AP) — House and Senate negotiators chased what appeared to be an increasingly elusive compromise over the state’s recreational marijuana law on Friday, a day that legislators had earlier pegged as a self-imposed deadline for reaching a deal.
A six-member conference committee shed little light on its discussions while meeting off and on behind closed doors with little apparent progress.
House Speaker Robert DeLeo adjourned the House until Monday, ruling out any possibility that a final vote could be held on Saturday.
Democratic Rep. Mark Cusack, the chief House negotiator, said earlier in the day he remained “hopeful” for an agreement. His counterpart in the Senate, Democrat Patricia Jehlen, replied, “I can’t say that,” when asked if the conference committee was deadlocked.
