Morning Poll -- Marijuana: Any Harder to Find After Border Patrol Seizes More Than 622,000 Pounds in Five Months?

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol announced yesterday that between October 1, 2009 and April 31, it seized more than 622,000 pounds of weed.

That was only in the Tucson sector.

With Border Patrol agents seemingly waging war on weed -- including three busts netting more than 1,600 pounds over the weekend -- you might think finding someone selling weed in Phoenix would be about as frequent as a unicorn sighting.

Yet, as far as we can tell, there's no shortage of people peddling chronic.

We want to know what you think: Is finding weed any harder in Phoenix with Border Patrol agents taking about $500 million of it off the street in five months.

See the results of yesterday's poll after the jump.

Yesterday's poll question: Is the Sonoran Tourism Board's Ad Threatening or is it Being Misinterpreted?

-29 percent say it's threatening.

-21 percent say it's misinterpreted.

-50 percent say Joe Arpaio's just an asshole.
