So, like, Yuma Arizona is totally an awesome place to live. Sure, there’s not much to do out there. It’s also super hot, and let’s face it, you’re living in Arizona. But check this out, man!

Someone in Mexico full on used a cannon to shoot marijuana across the border in an attempt to smuggle some weed into the U.S. Kind of gives a new meaning to the phrase “the smoking gun…”

About 85 pounds were lobbed across the border using a pneumatic-powered cannon–you know, the same kind of cannon used to launch t-shirts and stuff at basketball games–according to NBC LA.

But in a bogus move by Border Patrol, the canisters were confiscated and will be destroyed.

Bummer.

Next time some one in Mexico decides to shoot weed into the U.S., they should aim for Washington state.
