Treasure-Troves of Marijuana in Arizona Desert? Apparently So.

Two hunters found 126 pounds of bundled pot lying in the desert near Sasabe, about a month after Border Patrol agents discovered 220 pounds of pot south of Dateland.

Arizona's desert has apparently become a treasure-hunters paradise -- if your idea of treasure is tens of thousands of dollars worth of marijuana. Authorities figure the find was worth more than $100,000, (which is about $50 an ounce), according to the Arizona Republic write-up of the incident.

The Scottsdale hunters turned in the booty to National Guard troops who help patrol Arizona's border with Mexico.



After the Dateland find, a spokesman for the Border Patrol told us it probably wasn't a good idea to go looking for weed dumped by smugglers, who might challenge a claim to it.

Authorities say hiking or hunting the back-country near the border is relatively unsafe, anyway, because of the unchecked smuggling activity.

If I found a bundle of mexi-weed I would burn it,NO not that way.The quality and safety of weed grown by the cartels is already suspect,and the way our government seems to be going I would not put it past our government to lace the weed with toxic chemicals.
Grow your own or at least know the source of the herb you ingest.

well, that would also result in you getting arrested for multiple counts of murder.Imagine you shoot some young teens who are out for a walk in the desert to enjoy the sights. how would you feel then? oh wait you have no empathy so you wouldn't care at all.

$50 an ounce? Must be some crappy weed.
