Flying High: Cannon Fires Cans Filled With Marijuana Across Mexican Border

Category: Odd | Posted on Wed, December, 12th 2012 by THCFinder
Last year, smugglers tried using a catapult to get pot into the U.S.
Now, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents say they recently discovered 30 large cans of marijuana in a field near Yuma, Ariz., — and that the barrels apparently landed there after being fired from a pneumatic-powered cannon 500 feet away in Mexico.
The pot totaled about 85 pounds and "was valued at $42,500," says.
In other smuggling news, "Spanish authorities say they have arrested a Panamanian woman arriving at Barcelona airport with 3 pounds of cocaine concealed in breast implants," The Associated Press says.
The Panamanian woman was picked up at the airport in Barcelona.
So, it seems, we have two cases of flying high.


Couple who used profits from marijuana farm to help Kenyan village sentenced to 3 years in jail

It’s a drug lord meets Robin Hood kind of story.
Michael Foster and Susan Cooper were each sentenced to three years in prison after cops discovered a massive marijuana factory at their home in Lincolnshire, England. The couple made more than $600,000 in drug profits over 6 years — money they used for charity, The Guardian reported.
Foster, 62, and Cooper, 63, pleading guilty to charges of producing cannabis and possessing criminal money, but explained how they used the cash to help a Kenyan village they often visited.
“While in Kenya, they bought a computer for a local eye hospital, paid for children to be put through school, and paid for a lifesaving operation on a man’s gangrenous leg,” an attorney for Foster, Gareth Wheetman, said in court this week, according to The Guardian.
Cops busted the couple by accident in 2010, when an officer happened to be chasing a burglar near their home and reportedly caught a whiff of weed.
About $32,000 worth of pot — 159 plants — and another $32,000 in cash was found in the raid.
Officers found 159 marijuana plants when they raided the couple’s farmhouse in 2010.
The operation was described as a “professional and commercial set-up.”
The couple got away with their unusually high electric bill by claiming to run a pottery business with a kiln.
Foster and Cooper were painted in court as a pair of do-gooders who made a bad decision.
“You were growing [marijuana] on a significant scale, jetting off to Kenya on it,” judge Sean Morris said. “I am sure you were doing good things in Kenya with your drug money, whether that was to appease your consciences, I can only speculate.”

Obama Teams Up With Kal Penn In New Campaign Video

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, September, 4th 2012 by THCFinder

The Obama campaign released a new video on Monday featuring the president imploring actor and former White House staffer Kal Penn to take his job seriously when he hosts coverage of the Democratic National Convention this week -- and Penn appearing to be too stoned to care.

The video shows President Barack Obama making a phone call to someone to remind him of the stakes of his hosting duties on Thursday night, when Obama is scheduled to deliver his speech at the convention.
"Hey, this is Barack," the president says. "Listen, I need to know if you're on board. Okay, good. Because I'm counting on you. Everybody is. We have to get this right. So there's a lot at stake here. Just remember that I'm trusting you on this and I'll see you then."
Obama hangs up and the video pans to a shot of Penn slumped in a couch watching cartoons, stuffing his face with munchies, and slowly hanging up the phone. Slouched in the sofa next to him is John Cho, the actor who played his stoner companion, Harold, in the "Harold & Kumar" movies.
"Dude, who was that? That sounded intense," says Cho as he shovels cheesepuffs into his mouth.
"The president," Penn says with a blank stare and no enthusiasm.
"Sweet," says Cho. Moments later, both devolve into laughter at the cartoons they're watching.
The video may strike some viewers as odd, given that Obama has come under fire for cracking down on medical marijuana dispensaries despite promising not to during his 2008 campaign.

Cops: Man steals pot from police because 'it smelled so good'

Category: Odd | Posted on Wed, August, 15th 2012 by THCFinder
A man in Pennsylvania who was arrested Saturday for allegedly stealing a bag of marijuana from a police station says he did so because he couldn’t resist the drug’s aroma.
Kimball noted in the police report that at one point during their conversation, Thompson followed Kimball into a patrol room where the weed was sitting on a counter. Kimball then escorted Thompson back to the original room. After Thompson left the station, Kimball went back into the patrol room and noticed the bag of pot was gone.
Kimball searched the desk and asked other officers about the evidence but found no trace of the weed. Another officer tracked Thompson down outside the police station, asking him, “What did you do with the weed?”
Thompson held out his left hand and placed the bag in the officer’s hand, according to the affidavit. Police arrested Thompson and said they also found a suspected marijuana pipe in his pocket.
Police said that back at the station, Thompson apologized repeatedly, telling police, “I just couldn’t help myself. That bud smelled so good.” He also reportedly told police he couldn’t believe he was in trouble for “taking a little bit of weed,” especially since he had stopped by to give them information.
