The buds are potent and fresh, packed gingerly in heat-sealed bags to preserve their form and flavor – and throw off the drug dogs. These aren’t the dense bricks of Mexican pot moving up from the border. This is superior Northwest marijuana that fetches top dollar in the Midwest and Eastern states. And it flows through a pipeline straight across the Inland Northwest. The volume of narcotics trafficked on Interstate 90 is anyone’s guess.
