Man Killed By 80 Stone of Marijuana (But Not In the Way You're Thinking...)

By Gerald Lynch on at

What would you do if you got hold of half a tonne of marijuana? Yes, exactly: you'd hand it over to the relevant authorities at your earliest possible convenience. Yep. What you almost certainly shouldn't try to do with it is load the gear into the back of your car and attempt to break through a police road block with it.

But that's the feat one optimistic Brazilian drug smuggler tried to pull off, with inevitably grizzly results. After refusing to stop at a Federal Highway Patrol block, the driver lead cops on a three mile chase that ended with him losing control of the vehicle, slamming into a tree and being crushed by his own merchandise.
