Michael Sepulveda of Rio Grande City, Texas is not only a prolific pot smoker he is a quick thinker.

When Immigration and Custom Agents showed up at his house and found close to a ton of pot he had to figure out whether to come clean as a dealer, pot hoarder or as a pot loving guy.  He chose the latter.

The 28-year-old told authorities that the 2,551 pounds of pot found in the basement, which interestingly is only accessible via his bedroom, is his.  Sepulveda claims to smoke close to 170 joints a day which translates into a $9,000 a day habit.
