    I guess the pot being grown in our national forests is of superior quality, and since Mexico just legalized possession for personal use, that is the only reason I can think of for heading to Mexico with a load of pot.

    The pot was headed into the U.S. but the driver returned to the area where his buddies were when the Border Patrol started following him. Good thing they didn't have guns or this could have been much worse.

    SOUTH OF SAN JUAN — A group of suspected drug smugglers attacked two U.S. Border Patrol agents with rocks during a chase near the Rio Grande on Thursday evening.

    Agents were following a vehicle loaded with marijuana when the driver stopped at the riverbank and fled on foot, Border Patrol spokesman John Lopez said.

    As agents approached the vehicle to retrieve the drugs, five men emerged from the dense brush and began hurling large rocks at them.
