Get ready for some stories of outrageous drug smuggling; names have been changed to protect those who never busted. Follow it up by sniffing out the drugs in the wordsearch below.
Prison letters laced with liquid LSD
Recently, I spoke with a gentleman who spent some time in jail back in the early nineties. After his grow op was busted, Mike was charged with a number of offenses. A few of his buddies felt bad for him as he bided his time in jail, so they came up with a way to send him some cheer. They wrote him letters and dipped the corners of each page in liquid LSD. Mike would simply have to bite off the corner of the letter and he’d be tripping balls. At one point, his friends got concerned that the cops were catching on so they stopped dipping the corners. Instead, they would take a small pin, dip it in LSD and dot each period written in the letter.
Cocaine in avocados and pineapples
One day, someone woke up and decided to smuggle cocaine in avocados and pineapples. It was one of those ideas that was so insane that it worked for a while. However, the authorities these days have wised up to the drugs in produce smuggling hustle. After a pound of weed was discovered inside of a watermelon, the cops have been on red alert.
Check out the cops busting these dirty pineapples.
Cigarette filters and liquid LSD
This is a true story that came from an older gentleman that I know. Back in the day, John used to sell liquid LSD and his methods were quite brilliant. John used to dip the filters of cigarettes in the psychedelic substance and then sell them at parties. Some people would just keep the filter in their mouth while others smoked the cigarettes. Handing off the drugs was literally as easy as giving away smokes and the cops never caught on.
