Sour Kush: Two Tons of Marijuana Disguised As Limes Confiscated

Last month, US Customs and Border Protection officers in Pharr, Texas made an unusual discovery: They found 3,947 pounds of marijuana disguised as limes hidden in a truck filled with the sour fruit.

The citrus-disguised cannabis, which was wrapped in over 34,000 tiny green packages, was detected by a K9 team and in imaging inspection system, CNN reports. The haul was worth an estimated $790,000.

“This is an outstanding interception of narcotics,” Port Director Efrain Solis Jr. in a statement. “Our CBP officers continue to excel in their knowledge of smuggling techniques, which allows them to intercept these kinds of attempts to introduce narcotics into our country.”

As CNN notes, smugglers have used other food disguises for their drugs at this same border crossing before; just last year, nearly 2,500 pounds of weed was found stuffed inside fake carrots.
