238 Pounds of Pot (Value: $1.2 Million) Seized From Motor Home

This is what 238 pounds of pot and a cute police dog look like.
  • This is what 238 pounds of pot and a cute police dog look like.

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers saw a motor home make some lane violations on the Ohio Turnpike last week and pulled it over. Nothing to see here. Normal traffic stop.

Then the drug-sniffing dog started giving hints. Then the officers noticed some things that roused their suspicion. When they got inside, they found out why: 238 pounds of hydroponic pot. That's $1.2 million worth. Quite a score for the boys from Lucas County. (238 pounds is a score? Right? We're not up on the poundage required to make a pot seizure just big or really big.)

Explanation as to why your dealer might have been running low last weekend after the jump.
