Drug smugglers use "medieval marijuana catapult"

275x250.jpgDrug smugglers in Mexico have tried to use a medieval-style catapult to hurl packs of marijuana over the US border.

Following a tip-off the Mexican military have seized 16 kilograms of marijuana, a sports utility vehicle and a metal-framed catapult.

Surveillance footage shot near the small town of Naco shows the gang loading and testing the catapult which is powered by powerful elastic.

It's said the catapult was mounted onto a trailer so that it could easily be transported by the drug smugglers.

Officers say the device was capable to launching two kilograms of marijuana at a time… and is the sort of idea that could only have been dreamt up while high.
