Really, Your Honor, it's for medicinal purposes

Edinburg retiree caught with $3.8 million in drugs
Louis Hilaire Gagnon, 60, has been charged with trafficking 400 pounds of marijuana and more than 120 pounds of cocaine in second largest drug bust reported in this Florida community, The Northwest Florida Daily News reported. Authorities discovered the drugs – with an estimated street value of $3.8 million -- when they pulled Gagnon’s “work-type” truck over for a routine traffic stop around 9:30 p.m.

Quite the retirement plan. If a guy was smart, he'd start a business selling munchies to this guy's customers. That would probably bring in more than $3.8 million, and it would be legit as well.

Note to self: if I ever decide to traffic $3.8 million in drugs, make sure the truck is up to standard and obey all traffic laws.

(I just had a vision of some guy in my in-laws retirement community driving around the neighborhood in a golf cart distributing pot. They'd probably make more selling viagra, or heart medication)

(p.s. just had another thought---you could probably make more selling golf carts in these retirement communities, they're all over the place)
