Coast Guard Unloads 7 Tons of Seized Pot in Florida

The U.S. Coast Guard unloaded approximately 14,000 pounds of seized pot and more than 3,000 pounds of cocaine in Port Everglades, Florida on Thursday, with a U.S. congressperson and the media on hand to observe the work. The Coast Guard estimated the street value of the load at $62.5 million. The drugs had been confiscated in international waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean by the personnel of three United States vessels in five separate interdiction operations off the coasts of Central America, Mexico, and South America. The illicit cargo was delivered Thursday morning to the port by the Virginia-based Coast Guard Cutter Bear.

The Coast Guard estimated that the haul was worth $62.5 million.
