We've heard of losing your stash in the couch, but this is ridiculous.

Last week police in Albania seized over two tons of marijuana that was stashed in sofas bound of Italy. Police found the drugs after searching a truck at the port of Durres, 20 miles west of the capital, Tirana. The Macedonian driver was arrested.

The seizure came a day after police discovered one-and-a-half tons of cannabis hidden in a forest in south-western Albania, also believed to be destined for Italy.

Albania is one of  the poorest countries in Europe, and produces large quantities of marijuana. In the key southern growing region of Lazarat alone, annual production is estimated at 900 tons, worth about $10 billion – about half the country annual income.
