Women found with large quantities of pot wrapped as gifts

A couple of grinchy Missouri state troopers undoubtedly ruined Christmas for many Midwest stoners when they seized about 20 lbs. of marijuana, some of it wrapped as presents.

The pot was seized during a routine traffic stop for speeding, on Interstate 44 near Joplin, MO. The two women in the vehicle gave police permission to search the car, and authorities uncovered the pot wrapped in gifts and as as luggage.

Both of the women, from California, were charged on one marijuana related count and released on $1,000 bond.
