Potheads shield your eyes. Mexico just destroyed 134 tons of marijuana in a blaze you have to see to believe. You only see this amount of drugs in the movies.
'There are indications that suggest that it belongs to the organisation of the Pacific,' said Alejandro Poire, security spokesman for Mexican President Felipe Calderon, referring to the Sinaloa, or Pacific, cartel.
On Wednesday, Mexican authorities in Tijuana incinerated 134 tons of marijuana -- from what they said was the largest pot bust in the country's history.
According to The Los Angeles Times, the drugs were discovered 'after police intercepted a convoy of vehicles escorting a tractor-trailer' that had left a warehouse. Eleven people were reportedly arrested after a shootout with police and soldiers, and then, acting on information from the suspects, officials raided a warehouse and two homes.
