Marijuana.
If you happened to leave about 4,000 pounds of weed in southern Maricopa County, you're about to be very disappointed.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says deputies in a helicopter spotted two trucks covered in camouflage tarps in a desert area near Gila Bend, which were "stuffed so tightly with marijuana bundles they were protruding from open windows."

About 3,700 pounds of the weed was found in the two "possibly stolen" trucks, according to MCSO, while the extra 300 pounds was left in backpacks.

So, if you left about two tons of weed in the desert near Interestate 8 in Gila Bend, don't even bother, man.

Thanks for not trotting out the "$X million worth of weed" BS that the cops' PR people love so much. That weed isn't worth anything if it can't be sold. Rather, it's costing the taxpayers to guard, transport, and store it. So actually it's net worth is negative.

The drug runners left this pot FOR our police to find.  It's called the cost of doing business.  They leave a couple of tons out in the desert, tip the police, and low-and-behold the police score some illegal drugs.  Now the police can report to the media that they are doing their job, and while everyone is busy with the story, a few hundred tons gets across the border unmolested somewhere else. Believing this was not deliberately orchestrated is like believing that the World Wrestling Federation matches are real.

@StopTheHating Interesting hypothesis. Perhaps this answers the question of what would one do with a couple of tons of moldy, old weed?
