Being so close to the border, Maricopa County sheriffs are constantly fighting a war on drugs, marijuana in particular. Today there was a major seizure of marijuana: $1 million worth of pot was found in 2 stolen vehicles in Gila Bend around 1:30am this morning. Authorities said they found 2000 pounds of marijuana in the vehicles after a helicopter pursuit. While large drug seizures such as this are not an everyday occurrence, many people in Arizona find themselves charged with possession of marijuana and/or drug paraphernalia.
