A Nebraska State Patrol sergeant told NTV News that in the past three years, they've averaged around 2,000 pounds of marijuana each year.

With where they are at this year, they think they're on track to break a record.

Routine traffic stops help lead the Nebraska State Patrol toward drug busts along Interstate 80, with many people bringing drugs in from other states.

Sergeant Lee Jacobsen said NSP is looking at doubling and possibly tripling what they've accomplished in terms of marijuana seizures in past years.

Nebraska should build a wall along the Colorado border.
It's not rocket science that dope is coming down I-80 headed to Chicago.
