PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State Police troopers discovered 400 pounds of marijuana in a minivan during a traffic stop along Interstate 94 in Van Buren County.
Officials tell the Kalamazoo Gazette the pot seized Thursday has an estimated street value of about $500,000.
Troopers from the Paw Paw post were patrolling I-94 in Antwerp Township around 2:15 p.m. when they pulled over a minivan for careless driving.
That's when they came across the marijuana, which was wrapped in large parcels.
Police say the 28-year-old driver was headed to Detroit, where he was to deliver the drugs for street sales.
The man was being held in the county jail, where he was awaiting arraignment.

    YOu make it legal for medical reasons and they still bring it in by the 100's of pounds. Personally I think we need to get rid of Detroit.
