Kids, Don't Try This in CA: Pot Catapult Found At Mexico Border
Forget mules, or clever vehicle stashes! Marijuana smugglers have turned to a catapult to get drugs from Mexico into the US. A 3-yard tall catapult was found "about 20 meters (20 yards) from the U.S. border on a flatbed towed by a sports utility vehicle," in Mexico south of Arizona, and surveillance video shows people lobbing packages across the International Border fence, reports the AP. "The catapult was capable of launching 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of marijuana at a time," said a Mexican army officer. 35 pounds of pot, the SUV, and the catapult were seized by soldiers, but the smugglers got away.
