ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office was one of several major Florida law enforcement agencies to stop what they call a major drug trafficking operation.

Police say high ranking members of a Jamaican pot smuggling operation from Jacksonville, Orlando and Miami were meeting in Orlando to divide up over 2,700 pounds of marijuana.

Investigators say they observed the suspects meeting and splitting it up when they rolled in and made their arrests.

Legal in some states. The nation needs to decide tax it and legalize it ,or make it illegal in all states. Turning people into criminals just for dealing pot when it's ok in some states is bad idea. I don't support legalizing pot I am against it but the majority seem to want it.
