      No wonder they bust him, the back of the car would have been dragging on the floor... Seriously though, 282kgs of a material which is so like (or so i assume as it is a plant ;-)). You can't be serious...

      Its like having four average size adults in the boot of the car.

    wow seriously? so it works out to R1,33 per gram...must have been some "great" stuff.

    I find this really hard too believe the volume 282kg of dagga would be immense even when compressed. If you fill a refuse bag wit garden leaves it barely weighs 3 or 4 kg's... maybe the guy that did the weight caculation sampled the evidence before.

    This is a wind up.........282kgs in a boot? 28.2 kgs maybe??

    Perhaps the trailer he had hooked to the back of his double cab, coupled with the canopy and the passengers- and back seat was collectively referred to as the "boot". That's all how you can get that amount of dagga into a single car.
