Oops! Police in Arizona found nearly 5,000 pounds of marijuana — about $4 million worth — in a truck that was ostensibly just bringing some tomatoes in from Mexico. (What? They never saw that Simpsons episode where Homer crossbreeds tobacco and tomatoes? We bet it’d work with pot, too.) But that’s not the only food-related drug bust happening in the world! A Yankee Stadium security guard flew into New York from Guyana last week and, on his customs form, declared that he was carrying food items: fruit, vegetables, and “cooked rabbit.” Except there was no rabbit in his suitcase! Just three bricks of cocaine. [AZ Central; NYDN]
