All cheeba chiefers know that Canada has some of the best weed on the planet. Pot smokers in America love when they can get their hands on some Canadian loud. To the dismay of tree lovers, a good-sized quantity of the Canadian cannabis was intercepted at the Canadian border a little more than a week ago.
Miranda Ferron is a 33-year-old Canadian citizen that was applying to admission to the US. At noon on January 13, she was encountered by US Customs Border and Patrol officers at the Lewiston Bridge. According to the CBP website:
During primary inspection, inconsistencies were noticed by the officer. The subject stated she was traveling to purchase Powerball lottery tickets, and was referred for a secondary exam. A CBP canine team alerted to a foosball table in the back of Ferron’s vehicle. A search of the foosball table resulted in the discovery of vacuum-sealed bags. The contents of the bags tested positive for the properties of marijuana. A total of 50 bags weighing approximately 55 pounds were removed from the foosball table.
Ferron was arrested and handed over to New York State Police. The haul she was carrying is said to be worth $60,000. “This is an excellent seizure that demonstrates our officers’ dedication to enforcing the CBP mission and protecting the public from illegal narcotics,” said acting Port Director Cary Frieling. “Their vigilance prevented these narcotics from entering our country and reaching our streets.”
The Buffalo Field Office of the CBP made 387 drug seizures in 2015.
