The U.S. Customs Department confirmed this week that it seized a lot of illegal marijuana last year.
According to Customs Commissioner Myles Ambrose, his agents nabbed a total of 188,000 pounds of illegal pot during the year ending August 31st of 1971. That's 94 tons of grass.
Customs officials said the amount of marijuana seized during the period was 57% more than that seized during the previous 12 months.
Ninety-four tons of grass is equivalent to approximately 3.5 million lids, or enough to roll about 100 million joints.
