Last month, the US Customs and Border Protection officers in Pharr, Texas seized 3,947 pounds of marijuana. Various amounts of “lè ganja” were wrapped up in green paper and made to resemble key limes.
The packages, valued at $789,467, were discovered by an imaging inspection system and K-9 unit after crossing the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge, which is on the Texas-Mexico border near the Gulf of Mexico.
This bridge happens to be the same place where almost half $1million worth of marijuana was seized last year.
According to CNN, 2,493 pounds of marijuana were stuffed into fake carrots!
Nevertheless, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is currently investigating the fake limes. There is no word on whether or not the carrots come from the same fake produce company.
