115 Tons of Pot Seized in Mexico

 

A huge seizure of 115 tons of marijuana in Tijuana destined for the US seems to contradict statements from officials on both sides of the border claiming that cartels get relatively little of their income from marijuana.  The bust netted 230,000 pounds which authorities say has a street value of $340 million in Mexico.

  • That’s a little less than 3.7 million ounces. Yikes. How many doobies would that be? It boggles the mind.

  • I was watching the pot seizure on the news this morning. The bags looked like cement bags and were stacked up on pallets.

    I haven’t tried Mexican pot since the 1970s. It was pretty crappy. I wonder if it’s any better now? And, who buys their inferior product anyway? It’s apparent someone does and those who are against Prop 19 are clueless about the massive amounts still snaking aross the border.

  • 115 tons of Mexican brickweed ain’t shit.

    A zip of Mex sells for $25-$50 on the street. Wholesale, a kilobrick can fly for as low as $800. 100 kilos can go for $40k. 1000 kilos prolly goes for 2 or 300k. 100,000 kilos of brick bammer is may be worth 1 or 2 mil. That ain’t shit to a multi billion dollar operation. Drug smuggling is the only business where you can lose a few million dollars worth of product and it’s all psssht fuck it.

    • BC bud has a solid reputation, but it definitely didn’t earn it in california either. Where’s all the good BC and canadian bud going that they keep talking about? I’ve never been bowled over by any of it at all.

      • B.C. Bud is old news. It was the shit in the 1980s and early 90s but it got played out. Pounds may be half price in Canada but it is too much trouble to smuggle. These days Canada still shelters premier seed activity.

        Only a few things as good and plentiful as SoHum outdoor. That’s Trinity outdoor and Mendo outdoor. I’ve had some Tennessee mountain outdoor that was great too. Us smoking B.C. would be like living in Napa or other Sonoma/Mendo and drinking cheap imported wine.
