(Newser) – It was like a Cheech & Chong dream come true: A truck carrying a huge load of marijuana overturned at a busy intersection in San Jose this week, spilling large bags of weed across the road. As the driver fled, motorists and pedestrians made off with most of the marijuana, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Police, who found a loaded handgun inside the truck, haven't been able to track down the driver—or his cargo.
