An absolutely great story coming from the armpit of America. 44 damn pounds of cocaine and heroin! Look, I don’t know where they were headed or came from but if they made it to New Jersey from California it seems they were nearing the end of their voyage.
I’m just going to throw out a few friendly tips if you’re driving 2,884 miles with 44 pounds of drugs in your tractor trailer. First and foremost, go the speed limit. Trying to be casual will not be close to enough to get you through this trip. Thanks for coming to my TED talk, i’ve covered all my bases. Follow the damn laws, you know?
I of course am no expert but if I were to some reason get roped in to something like this for 50% of the profit,
text me that is just what I would do.
Getting caught must have been a bummer for these guys; being pulled over is top 10 worst feelings to have, next to finding out your goldfish needs to be flushed. The other bummer is the fact that they are still pushing drugs at 44 and 57. These men are damn near retired, why not just be an uber driver to make ends meet?
Drugs are bad folks.
