The seizure occurred Monday after an officer asked the driver of a tractor-trailer rig to pass through a drive-through scanner. The scanner picked up odd shapes and a drug-sniffing dog alerted to the scent of cocaine in the tires. The cocaine has a street value of $8.2 million, officials said.

The ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was a blow to the federal government in its fight against medical marijuana. The Justice Department has argued that state medical marijuana laws were trumped by Federal drug laws. WORLD BAGHDAD, Itaq RIOTING IN IRAQ DAYS AFTER SADDAM CAPTURE — Saddam I lussein loyalists rioted in Baghdad, ambushed a U.S. patrol in Samarra, stormed the office of a U.S.-backed mayor in Fallujahiind battled American troops in Ramadi — making it clear that Saddam’s capture has not quelled violence in Iraq. As guerrilla attacks continued Monday night and Tuesday, the 4th Infantry Division snared a leader of the insurgency and 78 other people in a raid north of Baghdad, not far from where Saddam was captured three days earlier. A roadside bomb wounded three American soldiers in Saddam’s hometown of Tikrit, and a pro-Saddam demonstration in the northern city of Mosul ended in violence, with a policeman killed and a second injured.
