US Customs and Border officials seized 2,175 pounds (987 kg) of cannabis entering the country from Canada at the Detroit/Windsor border on May 11.

The cannabis was discovered at the Fort Street Cargo Facility in a shipment listed as containing foam pool toys. 

“This seizure underscores CBP’s long-standing commitment to the border security mission,” said Port Director Devin Chamberlain. “The men and women of CBP continue to work diligently to keep our Nation and our communities safe.”

Such large seizures entering the US from Canada are not uncommon

More than 13,000 pounds (~6,000 kg) of cannabis have already been seized at the US/Canada border in this past fiscal year (October-March), compared to nearly 80,000 pounds (~36,000 kg) in 2021 and over 54,000 (~24,000 kg) in 2020. In 2019, less than 8,000 pounds (~4,000 kg)  were seized.
