You’ll never believe why these carrots were confiscated

What’s up, doc?

Creativity is necessary tool of the trade for drug smugglers, but the decision to disguise marijuana as just another carrot stands out as one of the more ingenious ideas.

At least it was genius… until they were busted.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents found nearly 2,500 pounds of marijuana — the street value is $499,000 — mixed in with real carrots, according to NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth‎.

The weed was stuffed inside more than 2,800 orange, carrot-shaped “packages” in a tractor-trailer when confiscated at the Texas-Mexico border near the Gulf of Mexico.

Bugs Bunny is sure to be displeased.

“Once again, drug smuggling organizations have demonstrated their creativity in attempting to smuggle large quantities of narcotics across the U.S./Mexico border,” said Port Director Efrain Solis Jr., who’s in charge of the Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas entry port.

“Our officers are always ready to meet those challenges and remain vigilant towards any type of illicit activities,” he added.
