$20 Million In Weed Found In Cilantro

Sometimes there’s a story that comes along that just blows your mind — this is one of those stories. Millions of dollars in marijuana was found bundled up with cilantro in Chicago yesterday. The Chicago Tribune reported:

About 7,000 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $20 Million was confiscated today by police from a West Englewood warehouse, Chicago police officials said.

The marijuana was found bundled and hidden among pallets of cilantro im the warehouse in the 2100 block of West 74th Street, police said.

My time covering the border exposed me to stories of smuggled avocados, horses, drugs, money, meat and much more, but ruining perfectly good cilantro with marijuana just about takes the cake!
