A Mexican Drug Cartel Used Fake Watermelons to Smuggle Weed

A Mexican drug cartel apparently spent a little too much time on Pinterest because they decided that painting millions of dollars worth of marijuana to look like watermelons would be the best way to smuggle the drugs across the boarder into America. The cartel almost got away with it, until the melons were scanned under an x-ray at a second U.S Customs checkpoint. It was then discovered that they were not fruit, but packages of marijuana. Oops.
