Stick around long enough and you’ll hear about the time a small plane running marijuana from Mexico jettisoned 924 pounds (427 kilograms) of the contraband in Herman Lindley’s pasture. “If I thought the cows would eat it and grow fat, I might have been tempted to keep the stuff,” Herman told the sheriff.
