US Navy Retrieving Floating MJ
UTSD by Nathan Max
An aircraft carrier group recovered an estimated 19 tons of marijuana that had been dumped into the Pacific Ocean over the weekend by three boats off the California coast, the Navy said Tuesday.
Nobody was apprehended and the three boats sped off after dropping their load, said Lt. Aaron Kakiel, spokesman with Naval Air Forces Pacific. Crews from the aircraft carrier Nimitz, guided-missile cruiser Princeton, Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 6, Helicopter Maritime Squadron 75 and the Mexican Navy picked up 186 bales of marijuana that apparently was en route to the United States. The Nimitz Strike Group is operating in the Pacific Ocean off the Southern California coast conducting carrier qualification operations.
“The coordinated response of all hands involved was phenomenal,” Nimitz Strike Group Commander Rear Adm. Pete Gumataotao said in a statement. “The combined efforts of each of our strike group components demonstrated the flexibility and capability that defines how we conduct business.”
Shortly before 2 p.m. Saturday, starboard lookouts on the Nimitz spotted two boats about four nautical miles away. When helicopter crews flew in for a closer look, they saw two 25-foot single-engine boats, which began dumping 80 black hefty bags, each filled with about 100 pounds of marijuana, the Navy said.
A little more than three hours later, an officer of the deck on the Nimitz spotted a third boat, which also dumped its load into the ocean. The bales were eventually transferred to the Coast Guard and brought to shore.
“This crew’s response was amazing,” Nimitz Commanding Officer Capt. Jeff Ruth said in a statement. “To operationally shift gears quickly and safely from carrier qualifications to a real-world response shows what true professionals work here.”

Note: AP is reporting 2 boats and 10 Tons, 6 Tons off one boat and 4 off the other.  No news source is reporting less than 10 Tons...

If it's floating in the ocean, it's dirt weed. The kind you buy in a lump, a lot like a dirt clod. It's full of stems and seeds, all smells like shit and gives you a headache, grinders were invented so you can break up. The "good stuff" comes in a huge bud much like flowers, it has a fruity smell and is sticky as hell. Weed is like beer. Those who really love it will grow their own, have a card and but the good stuff, or know a grower who will sell on the side. It's another plant all together. If it were beer, think of it like 19 huge crates of Keystone Light just fell into the ocean. Yes, there is many who would drink it, but then again people drink antifreeze too.
