Gregory Swenson and William Shepherd were arrested and now face a felony delivery of a controlled substance charge that could land them behind bars for as much as a decade. Both men were released from custody.

Since you've probably never seen 26 pounds of pot in one place at one time, you can thank the Oregon State Police for helpfully sharing the following photo of the stash Swenson and Shepherd were had in their trunk (click to enlarge):

Swenson and Shepherd were driving a red 2008 Pontiac G-6 when they were pulled over for a traffic violation just after 9:30 Tuesday morning while traveling northbound on Interstate 5 near Cottage Grove, Oregon. It's unclear why police ending up searching the vehicle's trunk, but when they did, they found the 26 pound stash jammed into a duffel bag.

According to Oregon's KOIN news, Swenson and Shepherd were carrying a total of $65,000 worth of ganja. Getting all that taken away is definitely a bummer, dudes.
