Another massive seizure occurred hours later at the Tecate cargo facility which uncovered 637 pounds of marijuana inside a tractor trailer. Numerous smaller seizures occurred throughout the following days, concluding a successful weekend for California’s CBP officers.

You call $4 million large? Large is in the billions, as in "b". A dollar doesn't buy much any longer, and soon will buy very little. Why do Mexicans continue to smuggle marijuana into the US when our own local and regional farmers have such productive areas?

The only thing I can figure is the clinics are buying weed through the back door. Do they (the clinics) have to show documentation to someone regarding their suppliers, quantity, etc.?
