Paulino Guerra, 35, was driving the 18-wheeler when a Houston cop pulled him over for what HPD says was a routine truck inspection.
And, well, there was more than one type of leaf in there.
HPD says the truck was hauling -- in addition to lettuce -- about a ton of pot, worth $3.1 million on the market. (No price estimate was given for the lettuce.)

Guerra is charged with felony possession of marijuana.
