    Marijuana package found on beach
    Al.com | Thursday, June 17, 2004 | Staff Report

    Origins of 50-pound bail unknown

    A bail of marijuana weighing about 50 pounds washed up on the beach in Fort Morgan on Wednesday morning, according to the Baldwin County Sheriff's Department.

    A pair of tourists found the illegal drugs sometime before 8 a.m. near Ponce de Leon Court, said Cpl. John Murphy, a spokesman for the department. The vacationers contacted the Sheriff's Department, which confirmed it was marijuana.

    Murphy said the department would alert federal authorities, then destroy the drugs. He said it most likely was part of a larger shipment that somehow ended up in the Gulf, but added that it is nearly impossible to trace it.

    "There is nothing we can really tie it to at this time," he said.

    Murphy said the bail consisted of five individually wrapped packages bound together using plastic, tape, rope and material used in potato sacks.

    "It's been in the water a little while since it had some barnacle growth on it," he said.

    Murphy said a package of drugs washes up on Baldwin's beaches once every year or two, on average. He offered several possible explanations: It could simply have been dropped from a boat; it could have floated away after a boat sank or a plane crashed; or it could have been intentionally dumped by smugglers who thought law enforcement agents had spotted them.

    "I'm sure that it was part of a larger load," Murphy said.

    i hate reading about stories like this. You always read about these people finding large amounts or weed and calling the cops...but just think about all the times it happens when people like us don't call the cops and no one ever hears about it :D

    Yeah wouldn't it be nice to call the cops a few months later and tell them
    "I found 50 pounds of weed on the beach and it was GREAT! Thanks to the stupid laws that you enforce I made more money off that bail in a month than you will make in two years. Have a nice day."

    How much to smoke and how much to sell....

    Let's see, if I kept the 50 lbs, how long would it take to smoke it? Scratch that, if I kept 40 lbs, how long would it take to smoke it? Uh, if I kept 30 lbs, how long would it take to ........., gee this is too hard to decide.
