And by WMD I mean The Weed of Mass Destruction
French navy intercepts Syrian ship carrying 20 tons of marijuanaOnce caught with their dangerous cargo these criminals set it on fire, apparently in an attempt to poison those around them, however, there are no reports of injuries to anybody.
The French navy said Thursday it had made a record cannabis seizure in the Mediterranean sea after intercepting a ship carrying 20 tonnes of cannabis worth up to 50 million euros.

The eight-member crew, who claimed to be Syrians, set the cannabis on fire and a part of the clandestine cargo was destroyed.
The evil-doers face up to 10 years in prison for this heinous crime.
I suppose there will be those small-minded idiots that will point to this and scream 'marijuana is terrorism' because of the large amount of money the cargo would have been worth, but those small-minded idiots would have to be reminded that the herb is only worth this amount of money because it is illegal.
Once marijuana is properly legal, this sort of incident will disappear.
