Elderly Couple Caught With 60 Lbs of Pot Said It Was for Christmas Presents

Two octogenarians from Northern California who were caught smuggling 60 pounds of weed into Nebraska last month say the reefer was intended as a Christmas gift for family and friends.

Clearlake Oaks residents Patrick Jiron, 83, and his wife Barbara, 80, were arrested and charged with possession and intent to deliver after authorities smelled the pot during a traffic stop.

“Both occupants advised that they were traveling from California making stops in Boston, Massachusetts and Vermont to distribute the marijuana to family and friends as Christmas gifts,” the York County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Kind of makes your holiday gifts looking boring by comparison, doesn't it?
