Back page: Bag of marijuana washes ashore in Alabama

ORANGE BEACH, Ala.— An Alabama man stumbled upon a 10-pound package of marijuana that washed up on the beach. Multiple news outlets report that Ron Smith was taking a morning walk near the Cotton Bayou Beach access in Orange Beach on Tuesday when he noticed what he thought was a seat cushion floating in the water. Upon closer inspection, he realized the package was actually a bag full of compressed marijuana. Smith called police, who picked up the package. Authorities say the bag weighed 10 pounds and was worth about $8,000. WECT-TV reports that another package of marijuana washed up along a beach in North Carolina on May 10. That package contained more than 12 pounds of marijuana. Atlantic Beach Police say Tropical Storm Ana likely washed the package ashore.
