Wait...How Much Pot?

And that was only the first suitcase
  • And that was only the first suitcase

Now that is a lot of pot. Lisette Lee of California has been accused of flying into Ohio on a private jet with, hold on, 506 pounds of marijuana. No that is not a typo. Stuffing the pot into 13 different suitcases, Lee is being charged with "conspiracy and possession with the intent to distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana." Lee was arrested at a Columbus airport and is pleading not guilty to all charges.

If you think about it though, a private jet was the only way to go. Continental charges for each piece of luggage, and sure, the first two bags are free on Southwest, but Lee would still have 11 more to go. And I can only imagine the conversation Lee would have had as she checked in.

"How many bags are we checking in today?"


"Ok...and they are all these identical silver suitcases?"


"Ok, I'm going to grab security."

Turns out Lisette Lee is an aspiring actress, and even has her own IMDB page. Her only role? "Baby Sugar Momma" in 2008's The Doorman. Doesn't look like that career will be going much further.
