Like Dennis Leary says in his "No Cure For Cancer" stand up, "weed doesn't lead to other drugs, it leads to carpentry." Mexican drug smugglers are always dreaming up new ways to get drugs across the border. Recently drug enforcement agents have confiscated a cannon believed to have been used to shoot canisters packed with marijuana, across the Mexican border.

According to Yahoo News

Mexican police have confiscated an improvised cannon that they say was used to fire packages of marijuana across a border fence into California.

The makeshift cannon was made of plastic pipe and powered by compressed air sourced from an old car engine, police in the border city of Mexicali said. The device was able to fire cylinders packed with up to 30 pounds of pot.


Apparently this isn't the first time this has happened. See the video from Buzz 60.
