CALLAWAY COUNTY, Mo. (KTVI) — A crash on a Missouri interstate led to a pot bust after a vehicle spilled 500 pounds of marijuana Wednesday afternoon, which was coincidentally 4/20.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol shared a photo of the packaged marijuana scattered across Interstate 70 in Callaway County, about 100 miles west of St. Louis.
“You don’t see this every day, but it is 4/20,” the agency tweeted Wednesday.
Officials said the amount of weed collected was so great that troopers need multiple vehicles to get it to the evidence room.
Police arrested two men who were treated by EMS before being booked on drug trafficking charges.
