75 pounds of marijuana washes up on beach
By Melinda Victor correspondent
October 9, 2003

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- About 75 pounds of marijuana washed up on a South Hutchinson Island beach, north of the St. Lucie Power Plant Wednesday morning.

Deputies received a call around 11:30 a.m. from someone saying there were strange packages on the shore, in the 5000 block of South Ocean Drive. The 15 well-packaged bricks had no marks to indicate where they might have come from, said Chief Deputy Garry Wilson of the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office.

It's unclear how the packages might have ended up in the water, he said. They were found off the same stretch of beach.

"It's highly speculative to what happened. There are a number of ideas. Maybe someone got scared and threw them overboard. There might have been a boat accident," he said.

The packages were collected and taken to the Sheriff's Office.

The average street value for a pound of marijuana is between $800 to $1,000, Wilson said. The estimated value of the marijuana found is roughly $75,000.

There have been many situations where illegal matter has washed up along Florida shores, Wilson said.

"Two weeks ago, two kilos of cocaine were found around North Beach. People are still actively doing drug trades," he said.

With Florida's location, it's not much of a surprise that this happens, Wilson said.

The beach remained open while deputies spent the afternoon looking for additional bricks.

"We don't know what the intended destination was," Wilson said. "The packages are being held for evidence and will be burned."

Staff writer Derek Simmonsen contributed to this report

That would be a sweet find

One of the reasons marijuana is illegal today because growers in the 30s lobbied against hemp farmers -- they saw it as competition, because It is not chemically addictive as is nicotine, alcohol, or caffeine.

I spent some time on an island in the caribbean that used to have a lot of coke traffic through it. For the people there, finding a "square dolphin" washed up on the beach was like winning the lottery.
Anyway, the cops are saying 800-1000 a pound? It's gotta be schwag, who needs it.
