â€˜Marijuana cannonâ€™ fires pot across border fence | The Sideshow - 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.
The cannon was discovered on Tuesday after U.S. officers told Mexican police that they had been confiscating a large number of drug packages that appeared to have been fired over the border, the Associated Press said.
It's not the first time drug traffickers have used a cannon to transport marijuana across the border. In December, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials recovered more than 30 cans of marijuana scattered in Yuma, Ariz., near the Colorado River.
According to NBC, an investigation of the area "determined that the cans were fired from about 500 feet away with a pneumatic-powered cannon" and that a "carbon-dioxide tank was found nearby."
In that case, the cannon was not found. But Mexican border police said on Tuesday that they have confiscated similar devices in recent years.

Hey not all mexican is dirt weed. That's a prejudice! No but in all seriousness I am almost certain the massive cartels, that are having fucking wars and are in control of part of mexico have some customers. I have also seen brick from Mexico of high grade stuff, had it pressed with the cartels seal and it was pretty dank. They are evolving with the times too. They know they need better stuff than the schwag they have. I can almost guarantee they are stepping up quality.

Watch, soon enough these cartels will realize they can start turning their schwagg into hash/oil and get more $$. Then we'll have 30lb chunks of errl being fired across the border
Your right. I wonder why the cartels dident like, start up a huge wearhouse grow of hydro or some shit in mexico and just try to import the higher quality bud.... you know, some stuff with no seeds or stems everywhere
