Hugs, not drugs

I don't know a lot about drug-sniffing dogs, but I'm pretty sure they're not fooled by flowers...
A week before Valentine's Day, a consignment of cocaine was found hidden among 20,000 roses from Latin America at Amsterdam airport, Dutch authorities said Wednesday.

The roses, a popular February 14 Valentine's Day gift, arrived last Sunday on a flight from Bogota, Colombia, which stopped over in Puerto Rico, the public prosecutors' office said in a statement. The drug was found in cellophane packets hidden in boxes containing the roses.
The stuff came from Bogota, Colombia? Really? The hell, you say!

(Actually, I didn't know they grew roses there. Who knew?)
