Another day, another botched attempt to smuggle weed in the U.S. In this latest case, a Georgia man admits to using Megabus to traffic weed across state lines. The weirdest part is that he tried to downplay the whole thing.
Man Admits To Using Megabus To Traffic Weed
On Monday, Tevin Lewis boarded a Megabus in Atlanta, Georgia headed for Memphis, Tennessee.
By his side, was 1.5 pounds of marijuana stashed throughout the contents of his luggage.
Police later boarded that same Megabus, where they then approached Lewis. Detectives then asked Lewis if they could search his carry-on luggage, to which he quickly obliged.
According to one of the officers, Lewis began shaking nervously as the cops rummaged through his bag. The detectives promptly found three vacuum-sealed bags, covered in aluminum foil, wrapped underneath of Lewis’ clothing.
When the officers asked Lewis what was in the bags, he downplayed the severity of the situation.
“That ain’t nothing but a pound or a pound a half,” Lewis told police.
The police then removed Lewis from the bus and transferred him to an organized crime unit where he refused to divulge any information.
“[I] ain’t no snitch,” Lewis proclaimed. “Y’all just lock me up and get me a bond.”
Final Hit: Man Admits To Using Megabus To Traffic Weed
Tevin Lewis’ failed marijuana trafficking attempt is just one of many foiled plots over the years.
Furthermore, when it comes to bungled attempts at smuggling weed, Lewis’ attempt is, actually quite pedestrian, as we’ve seen increasingly creative methods of trafficking over the years.
Most recently, a Florida man pleaded guilty to money laundering and intentionally structuring bank deposits to avoid the federal government’s reporting requirement, after illegally trafficking cannabis through his hydroponics gardening supply shop. He ultimately avoided trafficking charges after reaching a plea deal with officials.
A few weeks prior, over 122 lbs of weed were discovered embedded in a trailer in Nebraska after one of the parcels managed to fall out of the trailer. In this case, the driver actually called the Nebraska State Patrol regarding the package, and the cops were able to nab the rest of the goods.
Other elaborate trafficking attempts include an 18-year-old man zip lining over the U.S.-Mexico border with 240 lbs of weed, and another man disguising over two tons of cannabis as limes during transport.
Perhaps if the U.S. federal government considered legalizing the plant throughout the country, as opposed to concentrating its energy on foiling the illicit sales of the drug, we could finally get to the real root of the problem. Unfortunately, with Jeff Sessions and his befuddling anti-weed agenda, that doesn’t appear to be happening anytime soon.
