Cannon shoots drugs into U.S.
U.S. Border Patrol agents say smugglers have come up with yet another creative way to get drugs in the country — a cannon. Authorities say 33 cans of marijuana were spotted in a field near where the Colorado River crosses the U.S.-Mexico border. They believe the cans were launched about 500 feet into the U.S. using a pneumatic-powered cannon. After searching the area, agents recovered a carbon dioxide tank.
