Massive Dope Seizure
- Seven people have been arrested after nearly 11 tons of marijuana was found packed into six railroad cars from Mexico in what could be the largest pot seizure in the Chicago area.
The marijuana was found at a south suburban warehouse this month, according to the U.S. attorney's office, which valued the pot at $22 million.
- A family is accused of running a $1 million "designer marijuana" operation from their home in an unincorporated area near Tinley Park.
John Gecan, 52, his wife Darlene, 52, their son Christopher, 27, and another relative, James Osmolski, 22, were charged after police busted the pot growing operation in the 7,000-square-foot home in the 5300 block of West 175th Street, according to Cook County Sheriff's officials.
This is going to put a damper on a number of parties this weekend. Watch for Cannabis Futures at the Merc to head upwards in opening trades tomorrow. It should stabilize over the course of the day though as Mexican suppliers up shipments though their own underground railways on the border.
