105 Tons Of Sweet Cheeba Seized in Tijuana - October 19, 2010, 11:29 AM

Sweet lord. 105 tons! Let's start a bonfire.

Mexican authorities have made one of the largest marijuana drug busts in years, in the city of Tijuana.

Security forces battled with drug runners early Monday morning, after attempting to stop several vehicles suspected of carrying drugs.

Following a shootout, two people were injured and 11 people arrested according to Sky News.

Some of those that were arrested, told police where they could find more marijuana bound for the U.S.

Police seized 10,000 packages of weed, weighing 105 tons. Also seized were firearms, trailers and trucks.

Army General Alfonso Duarte described the bust. "Three operations took place simultaneously co-ordinating municipal, state, federal and army authorities," he said. "Approximately 105 tons (was found). We think this equals more than the total amount we seized in the last 10 months."

Duarte said the blocks of dope had been wrapped in different colors and labels. Some were even stamped with pictures that included TV character Homer Simpson.






“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

Street?
Well, around here high quality bud goes for ~$425/oz.

16oz in a lbs x 2000 (1 Ton) = 32,000 oz.

32,000 oz x 105 = 3,360,000 oz.

3,360,000 oz x $425 = $1,428,000,000 (Retail).

Yeah, heads are going to get merked over this.

---------------------------------------------------------


I would like to revise my assessment.
After having a closer look at that weed, that's not the >$400/oz hi-po I based my numbers on.

That's more or less Mexican brickpack swabbit/reggie/dirt weed. Probably more like $100-150 an ounce on the street, $200 if you can find a sucker.

Still 105 tons is no joke and w/a street value over $500MM, someone is going find their head on the back of a turtle.
