Border Patrol Arrests Man Trying to Smuggle Marijuana in Containers of Hot Sauce Across U.S.-Mexico Border
La migra isn't saying what hot sauce was used as the Trojan horse--was it Huichol? El Yucateco? Valentina? Couldn't have been Tapatío, as that's bottled in Vernon.
But I gotta say the smuggler wasn't that smart in thinking about what foodstuff to use as cover for his weed. What he should've done is smuggle in the bricks as tamales, wrapping each in individual husks to better mask what was inside. Or use the old oregano excuse--not that I know anything about it. Seriously--my only vice is bourbon.
