Candy and Pot found in bust

Authorities seized a ton of marijuana in a bust Tuesday. Seriously, one ton hidden inside a 21-ton shipment of jawbreaker candies, the Pioneer Press reported Wednesday. Authorities said the bust may be the biggest in Minnesota history and worry that their focus on methamphetamines may be causing a resurgence in pot and other street drugs. The shipment had a street value of about $3 million, authorities estimate. The semi-truck was pulled over in Minneapolis.
