It seems like the Marion Police Department in Illinois had a wild time recently, as they confiscated a massive amount of weed that weighed roughly the weight of a small child, a large dog, or a very determined kangaroo.

I can just picture the officers carrying this massive load of weed back to the station, struggling to keep their balance as they try not to spill a single bud. It's like a scene straight out of a stoner comedy movie.

City of Marion IL Police Department Seizes 82 Pounds of Marijuana

Now, when you think of things that weigh 82 pounds, what comes to mind? Maybe a bag of cement, a large suitcase, or a really hefty bowling ball. But 82 pounds of marijuana? That's a whole new level of heavy.

The haul consisted of not only 82 pounds of marijuana flower but also 30 bottles of tincture and a plethora of pre-rolled joints, according to reports. Now, I'm no expert, but that sounds like a pretty good time to me.
