    5 tons of marijuana seized in South Texas
    The Associated Press
    Aug. 15, 2011


    Texas — More than five tons of marijuana wrapped in plastic and stacked on pallets have been seized from a truck loaded with broccoli at an inland South Texas checkpoint.

    The Border Patrol says its agents discovered the contraband Saturday night at its Sarita checkpoint, about an hour north of the border on U.S. 77, after a drug-detecting dog alerted them.

    Border Patrol announced Monday that the 470 bundles of marijuana were worth about $8.2 million. The driver, who was not identified, was turned over with the drugs to the Drug Enforcement Administration.:doubt:

    More drugs pass through the South Texas border than any other place. Why isn't Gov. Perry doing more. Or is drugs a lucrutive business for Texas economy?
    NAFTA Superhighway? Perry was the only gubernatorial candidate in 2006 of four major candidates who supported it.

    why isn't Obama doing more to secure the border. those drugs never should have got across the border. more secure than ever is not secure enough. Illegal aliens would have been distributing those drugs across this nation, on our streets to our kids.
