  1. I don`t know, that picture looks like a lot more than 9 lb.s of hash. I know what a key – 2.2+- – pounds is a kilo – of hash looks like and that sure does look like a whole lot more that 9 lb.s

  2. Should just be allowed to be imported legally,war on drugs just feeds the drug/police/court/prison cartels,you driving under and endangering others,busted,you are now risking others lives,otherwise,no ones business.On a side note,quality hash a very dense material,agree,looks like a lot more(perhaps some got lost later!).
