More Than 3000 Pounds of Marijuana Found Inside a Shipment of Broccoli

One smuggling organization might want to rethink its future delivery methods after U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents in Texas discovered 3,159 pounds of marijuana in a shipment of broccoli on May 16.

Just before the narcotics discovery, officers referred a commercial shipment of fresh broccoli arriving from Mexico on a tractor-trailer for further examination. Officers then conducted a more thorough inspection that resulted in the discovery of 378 packages of marijuana which weighed 3,159 pounds (1,433 kg).

The packages contained 3,159 pounds of the alleged drug, worth $632,000.

“This is a substantial amount of narcotics that will not make it into our communities,” said Port Director Carlos Rodriguez, Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas Port of Entry.

CBP seized the shipment, the truck-tractor and trail, the marijuana, and the case was turned over to Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) for further investigation.

Whether the suspected smugglers’ plan to sneak weed into the US among 378 boxes of broccoli could either indicate their brilliance or their idiocy. Broccoli so closely resembles cannabis that some people actually mistake the two. Even Facebook’s photo recognition algorithms once confused pictures of broccoli for pot, triggering unnecessary post deletions and blocked accounts.

Confusing weed with broccoli even got someone killed. In 2018, a Florida teen was ripped off when he purchased $3,000 of broccoli passed off to him as marijuana. The teen, later aware that he bought bunk bud, tried to recoup his losses through robbery, which resulted in a murder case that got him arrested.
