13 arrests, 250 lbs. of pot caught up in Md. smuggling bust

Authorities in Harford County say they have broken up a major marijuana-smuggling ring.

The sheriff's office say 13 people have been charged, more than 250 pounds of marijuana and $400,000 have been seized.

Officials say 51-year-old Antonio Boston, of Aberdeen, was the ringleader. Boston was indicted Tuesday.

Lt. Lee Dunbar of the sheriff's office says those charged aren't street-level dealers, but wholesalers, and their arrests have put a dent in the supply of illegal drugs in the county.

just legalise it already and let the police spend their time catching rapists, murderers and domestic terrorists.
keeping marijuana illegal funds terrorists and creates criminal enterprizes that branch out further.
