The cannabis was found above ground and not near missile operators
Marijuana was found at a Minot Air Force Base nuclear missile facility in central North Dakota, the military reported Wednesday.
The undisclosed amount was found Oct. 9 at a missile alert facility, Air Force Sgt. Benjamin Smith said. The drug was discovered above ground and not near missile operators, he said.
Minot hosts one of the nation’s two B-52 bomber bases and oversees 150 Minuteman 3 nuclear missiles.
The base has been under scrutiny since a 2007 mishap in which a B-52 bomber was mistakenly armed with six nuclear-tipped cruise missiles in Minot and flown to a base in Louisiana.
Other lapses include the theft of a launch code device, missile crew members sleeping on the job and failed inspections.
