Seven thousand pounds of marijuana was found floating off the Orange County, Calif. coast with no apparent reason for it to be there. The Coast Guard didn’t see any boats around and there were no distress calls from anyone.
Yeah, but this is CALIFORNIA! I bet one of those insane looking submarines the drug cartels was building in Mexico pooped those bales of pot out a tube right there in that spot because that was the pre-ordained pickup point with a local boat. Either the sub pilot was too stoned to get the gps coordinates right or the boat pilot fell asleep, got the pickup date wrong, was killed by an opposing gang or was in jail on unrelated drug charges.
The estimated value of the pot is about $428 a pound, according to the article on Fox, but that’s awful cheap pot even for Mexicans. Instead of a $3 million loss as the article has it, more likely that grass was worth a good $1000 a pound or more and the loss is at least $7 million. Bummer for the druggies, eh? Ho ho ho.
