Marijuana for the Taking (and the Toking) Found Floating in Ocean off Marina Del Rey
Yes, there is a god, said the surfer.
Free marijuana floating in the ocean was just there for the taking. Unfortunately, Sheriff's deputies got to it before any of the guys at Venice Pier could.
Sheriff's marine operations deputies spotted the good stuff, packed in bales and floating in the water. They quickly organized a posse to pluck it from the water.

It all happened yesterday around noon about six nautical miles northwest of Marina del Rey, sheriff's officials say.
There were 35 of the packages, apparently watertight, and they were worth about a half mil, according to deputies' estimates.
The weed was turned over to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
So, was this a new way to get Mexican dope into the United States -- just float it on in and hope Spicoli doesn't get it before your guys do?
(Just imagine the Bob Marley rager that would have taken place this weekend).
We have a call in to sheriff's officials to find out more.
