If necessity is the mother of all invention, then no one can say that Mexican drug smugglers aren't a resourceful bunch.

In a situation that seems almost like an ironic tribute to the medieval days of old, a crafty band of drug runners were recently caught on the US border while trying to use a fully-functional drug catapult to hurl Marijuana over the International Border Fence. While they had the bad luck (or judgment) to do something illegal right in front of a surveillance camera, you definitely can't fault them on ingenuity.
