Border patrol agents found a sack containing peyote Saturday in a drug smuggling attempt near the border.

Agents found a burlap sack containing peyote inside a vehicle just before 1:30 p.m. Feb. 9 after a Border Patrol K-9 alerted authorities. The drugs and subjects were taken into custody and turned over to the Duval County Sheriff’s Office for possible prosecution.

Peyote is a small soft blue-green spineless cactus that produces a hallucinogenic drug.
