17 million pounds. Of weed.

As reported by the Center for Investigative Reporting, that's the amount of weed seized on the U.S.-Mexico border from 2005-2011. So, a lot of weed.


The video above was made by the CIR, who in a more detailed report their site get fantastically nerdy about just how much weed we're talking about here. (Hint: A lot.)

For some reason, they've based the whole video on the "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" video-game meme. Because of course they have.
