Big Hitter: Brazilian Marijuana Smuggler Killed By Stash

1

Smuggling weed is never an easy proposition – particularly in Brazil. And while no one has have ever died from smoking marijuana; smuggling 1,000 pound load of chronic across the Brazilian countryside is a risky proposition – with a permanent downside…death.

The hectic craziness started when a man, who was too crushed to be identified, was not quite careful enough while trying to smuggle a 1,000-pounds of Brazil’s finest KGB in the backseat of trashed and tiny ride on a one-way mission – a hopeless thrill ride from Soa Paulo to Mato Grosso de Sul.

Board, and always up for a good chase, it was only a matter of time before the Federal Highway Patrol caught a whiff of the action…and got in on the fun of foiling his antisocial adventures, setting up a roadblock to end his reign of pot smuggling terror.

Rather than glide effortlessly into the hands of the Federal Highway Patrol, the desperate smuggler, trying to make a few bucks figured one last joyride with the local authorities was the way to go. At blinding speeds, a three-mile hell ride ended when he lost control of his car, crashing into a tree…and becoming one with over 1,000 pounds of Brazil’s finest pot.

While possession of marijuana in Brazil for personal use would only garner a slap on the wrist from the local police, smuggling or selling large quantities of weed could potentially lead to any smuggler spending 15 years behind bars. And with a prison system that is rich in police brutality, torture, and summary executions there was plenty of motivation to make this smuggler “punch it.” When the cops said stop.

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog, though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink booze, or do any other "drugs." I consider myself living proof that weed is not a gateway drug - If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math), I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be.
