More than a ton and a half of pot seized

Darn. I mean: Obviously pot doesn't make you paranoid enough.

Seriously, don't the feds have something better to do, like hunt down violent criminals and rouge bankers?

Let's stop goofing around and legalize pot. We can tax it, goodness knows the government needs the cash. "They" can smoke it. Everyone's happy.

According to the complaint, federal agents watching the shop Jan. 20 followed a white GMC Yukon from there to the Thoroughbred Lounge on Rozzelles Ferry Road.

It then crossed I-85, doubled back and met a green Freightliner tractor-trailer with Texas tags.

Agents watched the Yukon lead the truck back to the automotive shop. The Yukon continued driving around the shop, conducting what the agents believe was counter-surveillance.

Several men spent the night in the shop, sending out runners for food while they worked, agents said.

At 5:50 a.m. the next morning, a white Ford van drove out of the garage with its headlights on. Surveillance units followed the van from I-85 to I-485 south, when a CMPD K-9 unit pulled the van over.
