First off, I'm nowhere near a master smuggler but I think I would know better than to travel with 2 suitcases full of pot with luggage tags tied to my name. Also, there is no way anyone can legally buy almost 35 pounds of marijuana, even in California where it's legal.

According to, a 23 year old woman flew into Minneapolis from South Carolina with no luggage (red flag) and then caught a plane to Los Angeles, California, again with no luggage. 8 hours later she returns to MSP with 2 checked suitcases.

I'm not exactly sure how airlines or the TSA monitor luggage and such but evidently, red flags were raised and authorities in Minneapolis were alerted to the possibility of suspected narcotics in this woman's 2 pieces of luggage.

Sure enough, pot sniffing dogs hit on the 2 pieces of luggage with tags belonging to the 23 year old woman. Authorities asked for permission to search the woman's luggage and she refused their request. A search warrant was obtained and the pieces of luggage were found to contain 34.38 pounds of marijuana packaged in smaller bags.

The not so smart woman was arrested and now faces charges of 2nd degree sale of 10 kilos or more of marijuana within a 90 day period.

Personally, I think the fact that marijuana is still illegal in some states and legal in others is ridiculous. But, I don't think possession of almost 35 pounds of pot is legal in any state.

So, this 23 year old woman is looking at a possible prison sentence of up to 25 years.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
