El Chapo may be on the run but the game don't stop. A drug-sniffing dog recently found 40 pounds of marijuana hidden within a black marble headstone in Mexico City International Airport, according to the Daily Mail. Judging by the address, the bud was sent from Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico and was headed to a cemetery in the United States. The drugs were only wrapped in cellophane, meaning the smugglers basically made no effort to conceal the smell. Maybe they should've taken a page out of Cheech & Chong's book and just made the headstone out of weed.

Somebody's getting fired over this. Silver lining for whoever perpetrated this graveyard faux pas though is maybe he'll escape with his life, considering that 40 pounds isn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things.

According to pictures, the headstone read:

In loving memory of Pedro Huerta - to love in the hearts of those we love is never to die

The drug trade is a savage one.
