Border Patrol agents seized about 3,400 pounds of marijuana Friday morning at the Falfurrias checkpoint.

After a K-9 alerted to a trailer passing through the highway checkpoint, Border Patrol agents sent the vehicle to secondary inspection, according to a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Agents pulled 134 bundles of marijuana - weighing 3,449.85 pounds - from the trailer, according to the news release.

Border Patrol arrested the driver and turned the marijuana over to Homeland Security Investigations, a division of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Customs and Border Protection didn't name the driver, who was described only as woman with United States citizenship.

Make it legal here in your state (and the U.S.) and you won't have to spend tax dollars on keeping an eye out for it. The transportation of cannabis from Mexico takes place because the demand in the U.S. will NEVER go away so the product has to come from somewhere to satisfy the demand. If the demand could be answered from within our borders, much of this border-breaching will cease.

Wake up, Texas ---- you are passing up on an opportunity to minimize the amount of this activity, drastically cut tax dollar expenditures on arrests and prosecutions both from the border and internally, and generate income to support your state. This is a win-win-win scenario. You guys can then claim to have the biggest steaks AND be a cannabis-legal state !
