A tweet by CBS News shows what appears to be a police officer or customs agent somewhere around the Brazil-Paraguay border helping to lighten the woman’s load.

The video shows an unidentified woman raising her long-sleeved top and T-shirt to reveal the manufactured bump, which is being held safe and sound in a type of elasticized holder fastened around her waist.

The officer then removes the bundle of joy, placing it on a table, but the video ends before showing the bag’s contents.

The woman was trying to travel from Foz do Iguaçu to Porto Alegre when the delivery was revealed unexpectedly early.

A translation of an article in Bandab notes the woman appeared to have been trying to travel by bus between the two communities at about 12:30 p.m. last week when she was nabbed. She has been imprisoned after giving birth, as it were, to a 6.1 kg cannabis seed baby.

As part of the travel route, federal police routinely inspect vehicles, as well as their passengers, for drugs, weapons and smuggled goods.

According to JD Supra, Paraguay may be leaning toward the legalization of medicinal marijuana subject to licensing requirements, but that is not the case for recreational cannabis, which remains illegal.

The information notes enforcement does not differ by either quantity or product type, although the country has decriminalized for personal consumption the possession of two grams or less of cocaine and 10 grams or less of marijuana.

Despite weed continuing to be illegal, Paraguay remains the largest producer of cannabis in South America, the Transnational Institute, an international research and advocacy group, noted in 2016.

For Brazil, CMS reports federal law there “prohibits the plantation, cultivation and harvesting of drugs, except for medical or scientific purposes.”

The recent incident is not the first time a smuggler opted for a baby bump. Back in 2019, also in South America, a woman’s bundle of joy, namely 15 bricks of cannabis, was delivered to the authorities as she and a companion were travelling by bus near the Argentina-Chile border.

The woman was noticed after her companion was busted with a small bag of weed in his carry-on. That kicked off a search of both, revealing the bud baby.
