Ford Fusions Are Dope

This story caught my attention yesterday evening. From ABC 7 Chicago:

Authorities are looking into how marijuana worth $1 million was hidden in the trunks of brand new, Mexican-made Ford Fusions at a dealership in Ohio, according to Silverio Balzano, agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Youngstown office.

The cars were manufactured at the Ford plant in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, and were shipped by rail into a CSX yard in Lordstown, Ohio, Balzano said.

Now, investigators are trying to discover where along the supply line the marijuana was packed into the cars — and who failed to retrieve it.

It will be interesting to see how this story develops. I see no way this can have happened without some sort of conspiracy. The question will be how widely spread the conspiracy is.

If I were a top level manager sitting in Dearborn right about now I would have already dispatched an investigation team to Mexico.

    How long until CNN picks up the story and the only question left outstanding is was it Trump, Junior, or Jared……..

    Guarneri is right in that Trump and Ford HAVE been in the news together lately. However, despite Trump’s initial bragging about getting Ford to build a new plant here in the US, the new factory will instead be in “Chy-nuh”.

    Back to something relevant to this blog post, the most obvious news connection between this specific story and our government is that dangerous cartels smuggling in marijuana will only be a factor if old man Sessions has his way in resurrecting the disastrous War On Drugs. Legalize it, tax it, then use that money to provide proper health care to our own citizens. It’s quite simple really.

    Legalize it like alcohol? major corporate backing, available in every restaurant or ballpark or convenience store? You are going to need a lot of medical care, meaning high taxes on dope, meaning a black market will still thrive because addicts can’t afford the watered down legal stuff. I do agree the war on drugs causes more harm to society than drugs themselves, but we don’t have a model where corps push and package meth like energy drinks.
