PHOENIX (AP) — Yavapai County authorities say a traffic stop in northern Arizona has resulted in the seizure of more than a ton of marijuana.

The county Sheriff's Office says the seizure was made Thursday after deputies stopped a tractor-trailer rig traveling eastbound on Interstate 40 between Seligman and Ash Fork

The marijuana was packed in vacuum-sealed plastic bags in cardboard boxes in the trailer.

According to the Sheriff's Office, it's believed the marijuana was headed to the East Coast.

The Sheriff's Office says the driver and a passenger were arrested and the truck and trailer were seized along with the marijuana.

Google is paying 80$ per hour! Just work for few hours & spend more time with friends and family. Yesterday I bought a top of the range Lancia after having made $9458 this month . Its the most-financialy rewarding I've had. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it out

In this case, "after traffic stop..." is correct. The traffic stop occurred first, THEN the marijuana was found, THEN it was seized. The tractor-trailer rig was probably enclosed, so discovering the mary jane DURING the traffic stop would have been nigh unto impossible. Also, the article used "ton" as a measurement of weight, not as an alternative to "a s*** pot full of...". And, "over a ton..." would weigh closer to 1000 kilos (three zeroes/2200 pounds)than to 100 kilos (two zeroes/220 pounds).

back in the day, "ton of marijuana" was just slang for 'a lot'. Try using a pronoun like "one" or "a". Also, how about '"during" a traffic stop'? kinda late, the overworked "after". Spells like teen spirit

Could have been a ton of taxable revenue. Now it's gonna sit in a police evidence locker *wink*
