A US national might have gotten too excited about marijuana tourism, he is in police detention tonight - after he showed up at the international airport with 7 bags of weed, and an eighth bag containing to be cannabis seeds.

Reports are that around 3:00 this evening, a customs officer was conducting a luggage inspection on this American. Inside his luggage, the officer found the different parcels of suspected cannabis to a combined weight of 1.475 kilograms - or 3 and a quarter pounds.

The eighth bag, which contains the suspected cannabis seeds, has a weight of 25 grams. The officer also found some sort of plastic container with what is believed to be concentrated cannabis wax.

The Officer quickly called in Ladyville police, who took the American into custody. He will most likely be charged with drug trafficking.
