There are a lot of different ways to deal and smuggle drugs -- we presume -- but drug traffickers never seem to have a shortage of innovative and unorthodox ideas.

In Argentina, authorities busted a group of drug traffickers who were selling marijuana and cocaine at a unique venue: a pizzeria. The 'narco-pizzeria' in Lanus allowed customers to purchase the illegal substances by using the name of Argentine actress Dolores Fonzi and would hide the goods in food.

Local media outlets have revealed that the pizzeria had two menus -- one "drug menu" and one "clean menu" -- that they would give to customers. The drug menu offered an empanada for 50 pesos ($6, at 8 pesos to the dollar) and a mozzarella pizza, which came with three small bags of drugs, for 100 pesos ($12).

Argentine police recovered three ounces of cocaine, three ounces of marijuana, a shotgun, a revolver, photographs of Fonzi and 2,500 pesos ($310). According to Lanus police chief Fabian Perroni, three were arrested in the bust, including two men and a woman.

Selecting Fonzi, the wife of Mexican actor Gael García Bernal, was no random coincidence either. The actress recently voiced her support for the legalization of marijuana in Uruguay and even admitted that she frequently used weed.
