One state inspector didn't look too hard for evidence of pot smuggling. It hit him in the head -- literally. According to authorities in New Mexico, an officer with the state Motor Transportation Division was conducting a routine truck inspection. While he was inside the tractor trailer rig, a box with about 50 pounds of marijuana bricks fell on his head. The truck was supposed to be carrying beauty products. Officials say the truck had 50 boxes that contained more than 2,500 pounds of the illegal weed. Authorities put the value of the illicit cargo at more than 6 million dollars. The pot has been turned over to the feds. Officials haven't decided if the driver will be charged.
