Smugglers’ Siege Engine Propels Pot

 Smugglers' Siege Engine Propels Pot

Chivalry may be dead, but the Middle Ages are alive on the Mexican Border. Federales found a catapult used by drug smugglers to propel pot over the border fence and into the Arizona desert.  Cops captured the catapult and cannabis but the flingers fled. Anybody missing from the Centro de Estudios Medievales at the Universidad de Sonora?

Note: The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) does not have official chapters in Mexico, but the SCA’s Kingdom of Atenveldt “encompasses all of Arizona and small parts of Utah and California.” Hmmm.
