SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Tis the season for finding cross-border drug tunnels.
The latest secret passage - equipped with a hydraulic lift, electric rail cars, wooden staircase and end-to-end wood floors - was discovered Tuesday on the U.S.-Mexico border, highlighting an emerging seasonal trend. For three years, authorities have found the most sophisticated tunnels shortly before the winter holidays in what officials speculate is an attempt by drug smugglers to take advantage of Mexico's fall marijuana harvest.
The discovery of the 600-yard tunnel resulted in seizures of 32 tons of marijuana, one of the largest pot busts in U.S. history, said Derek Benner, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's special agent in charge of investigations in San Diego. It linked warehouses in San Diego and Tijuana and was equipped with lighting and ventilation.

Damn They need to spread the Weed man... I know alot of people that could use it for our nerves.. With Obama being President I need something to calm me down. Wait What did I just say?
It’s my understand that it was actually 34 tons, when they found it. :)
It’s going to be a dry Christmas.
‘With Obama being President I need something to calm me down. Wait What did I just say?’
That’s sounds good man. Whatever you said.
Geez, got any Twinkies?
Hahaha, twinkees and some jerky too, the leftovers will be heated up later. WHAT are they going to do with 64,000 pounds of weed? Who’s going to keep track of how much it weighs, there’s no way they’ll burn it.
That fence is working great!
DAVES NOT HOME MAN! No this is not Dave. No Daves not home!
Shoot...fella could have hisself a purty good time in Vegas with all that.
That will turn into 30 tons before it gets booked into evidence, and 2 tons before the feds burn it while standing downwind.
There is a way to stop this drug crap. Execute the dealers. If you are caught with illegal drugs with a quantity sufficient for intent to distribute, then you die. You are arrested, tried, and if convicted, you will be executed within 90 days. No appeals whatsoever.
Why does the alleged “war on drugs” drag on from year to year. It has been going on since the sixties. Because there are to many people making big bucks out of it and they aren’t all drug dealers. Lawyers, law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, judges, rehab people, etc. The list is almost endless.
You deal-you die would put a halt to almost all of it. It not, then we the people would not have to house and feed quite so many criminals.
Makes my eyes red just reading this story....got milk?
‘Feds find 32 tons of pot in Calif. border tunnel’ and smoked it. All.
Any Ron Paul bumper stickers found down there?
Light it up in the tunnel, add some ventilation pushing south, and voila! World’s largest bong!
How the he11 they build something like this. 600yards with built in elevator probably dug with shovels.
Some of us preppers could take lessons.
This is a bad news article. That would be good news.
