Latest narco tactic: 'Pot cannons'

CNN had a report earlier today on these air-powered "pot cannons" that drug smugglers are using to lob marijuana over the border into the United States. This is the latest permutation on other smuggling tactics. I blogged here when they found a drug catapult. And I've written here about the use of ultralight aircraft to take drugs over the border. Then there are the tunnels. What's left? Fleets of carrier pigeons?

I have a photo in my collection of an SUV lodged on top of a border fence. How did it get there? Makeshift bridge tracks up one side.
