Go big or go home is one way to live your life. That is what the driver of a truck stopped at the Arizona-Mexico border this week must have been thinking. US Border Patrol busted the smuggler with a mere 6 tons of marijuana in his truck attempting to enter the country. Marijuana may be legal for prescription medical use, but it is still an illegal controlled substance often used for non-medical purposes.
Arizona Levies Heavy Drug Charges
Arizona has strict penalties for drug trafficking and possession of marijuana. Even a very small amount can result in a criminal charge and a permanent criminal record. Most arrests this month will not be on the scale as the drug smuggler at the border, but a drug trafficking charge of any scale is taken extremely seriously by Arizona courts.
