U.S. Border Patrol agents say smugglers have come up with yet another creative way to get drugs in the country -- a cannon.
Authorities say 33 cans of marijuana were spotted Friday in a field near where the Colorado River crosses the U.S.-Mexico border. 
The 85 pounds of marijuana found in the cans had an estimated value of $42,500.
