Ich hab' grade die gestrige Breaking Bad-Folge gesehen – dazu später mehr –, da kommt die Meldung hier genau richtig: Das mexikanische Kartell schmuggelt sein Gras anscheinend in verkauften Safes. Aufgeflogen ist das ganze, weil sie eine Ladung verwechselt haben und tatsächlich einen Sicherheitsschrank mit 300 Pfund Gras an jemanden nach Hause geliefert haben.

"I've been in law enforcement for 47 years and I've never seen anything like this," Shelby County, Ohio, Sheriff John L. Lenhart said. "It's quite effective if you think about it: wrapped airtight to withstand high temperatures. Drug-sniffing dogs probably couldn't smell it."

It turned out the gun safes were manufactured by Champion Safe Co. in Nogales, Mexico, packaged by local inmates and shipped north, police said. […] "Someplace between Mexico and the warehouse in Northern Ohio, the drugs got mixed up and put in the wrong safe and got delivered to the wrong person," Lenhart said.
