Missy Giove was a world-class downhill bike racer, before she retired in 2003. Sadly, life after retirement just hit a bit of a snag, as she was just busted by the DEA for possessing almost 400 pounds of weed. From the monolith (thanks, OC)

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration officials said Wednesday that the 37-year-old Giove, of Chesapeake, Va., and 30-year-old Eric Canori of Wilton were charged Tuesday with conspiring to possess and distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana.[…]

DEA spokeswoman Erin Mulvey said authorities learned of Giove and Canori’s plans last weekend when Illinois State Police pulled over a woman driving a truck and trailer loaded with about 220 pounds of marijuana. Authorities completed the delivery to the Albany area, where Mulvey said Giove picked up the vehicle and trailer.[…]

Giove was later arrested at nearby Saratoga Lake, authorities said. A search of Canori’s home turned up more than 150 pounds of pot and more than $1 million in cash stashed in a closet and the basement, the DEA said.

This clearly shows that the Obama administration isn’t helping out entrepreneurs like he promised. Seriously, I have a hard time imagining 370 pounds of anything. But seriously, who keeps a million dollars in cash in a closet. You’d have to be high to do something like that. Yeah, that joke sucks, but I’m really behind right now.
