Question: Twenty-five years ago, in 1994, when a truck carrying 33,000 pounds of cabbage was clocked along I-55 doing 68 mph in a 55 mph zone near Towanda and an Illinois State trooper pulled it over, how did a misspelling lead to one of the largest marijuana busts in U.S. history?

Answer: The two men in the truck said they were brothers but both spelled their last name (“Sessions”) differently. That then led state trooper Russell Sauve to wonder and look under the cabbage. That’s when he spotted 2,740 pounds of marijuana, valued then at $5.5 million.
