Drugs Smuggling Tunnels On US-Mexico Border Unites Marijuana And Hezbollah

by | 4th, November 2010

CALIFORNIA rejects Prop 19, the bid to legalise marijuana for any use, so its back to smuggling weed across the border with Mexico via tunnels.

(Did Hezbollah build the tunnel – they have an outreach centre in Tijuana? Iran is digging into the US. Be afraid!)

The tunnel is 600 yards long and has been used to smuggle 30 tons of marijuana, say the police. At one end is a lockup in Tijuana; the other end is at the Otay Mesa industrial area of San Diego.

The forces who busted the tunnel estimate that it’s been in operation for one month. That’s 30 tons in a month. Had Californians voted to legalise weed, this would have been their own native cash crop. But, still, a chance has been missed. Last month 105 tons of weed was confiscated in Tijuana.

And so it is that one day on from the Pop 19 bill failing, the border police brag about stopping a huge delivery of weed. Coincidence? Maybe.

But it’s not the first tunnel operation to be stopped:

In the past four years, 75 smuggling tunnels have been discovered on the U.S.-Mexican border…125 tunnels have been found since the early 1990s, when authorities began keeping count, with just one of them on the U.S.-Canadian border.

But while the police were looking for weed, does anyone know how many people have been smuggled through the same tunnels..?
