Some attempts to move these drugs across the border have gotten very creative. Along the Arizona-Sonora (Mexico) border, smugglers have taken to the skies to move marijuana.
U.S. National Guard troops have seen smugglers fling the drugs over the border fence with catapults. These catapults are on flatbed trucks on the Mexican side of the border and can launch more than 4 pounds of marijuana at a time.
Troops seized 35 pounds of marijuana that had been catapulted near the Naco Border Patrol Station last week, along with the catapult. Another catapult was found near Agua Prieta, Mexico on Thursday.
