    Grainy surveillance video shows drug smugglers putting a new twist on their crime by using a catapult to launch small bales of marijuana across the Arizona-Mexico border.

    The video was taken the night of Jan. 21 by National Guard troops monitoring a series of surveillance cameras near Naco, Ariz., officials from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.

    The black and white video shows at least four men near an SUV loading a three yard catapult and flinging the pot over the border fence.

    Border Patrol agents contacted Mexican authorities to thwart the smugglers, officials said.

    The men reportedly fled from the area to avoid apprehension, officials said.

    Mexican police seized approximately 45 pounds of marijuana, the catapult and the SUV belonging to the smugglers. The catapult was found on a flatbed towed by the SUV

    I'm not even going to try to find the story as it was before all news was digital but....

    Everything that was old is new again. They were catapulting bales of weed across the Red upstream from Matamoros in 1975.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    As Daveman said, "deport them with trebuchets."
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.
