Got Any Friends At Padre Island?

Link. And I'd love to know the back story. You just know some boys in a big ol' boat coming up from Mexico or Central America got spooked by the cops and just dumped the load overboard. (And I've been reading In Search of Captain Zero which involves similar, crazy stories --- I briefly met Captain Zero in Costa Rica who "retired" to a secluded village down there 20 years ago. Here's his story that appeared in High Times magazine. Fascinating stuff.)

We need to decriminalize now. It would create a ton of jobs and cut a lot of funding from brutal Mexican and South American drug cartels.

Anybody who thinks weed is even close to as bad for society as alcohol is very ignorant or braindead.

Just say no. To dopeheads. Losers.

That is one of the ways that drug smugglers get it into the U.S. They drop several bales off of boats offshore and let the currents float them in to shore where others pick them up off the beach during the middle of the night. Sometimes some of them don't come in as soon as they should and people working in the Sea Turtle Recovery program on North Padre or park rangers find them along the beaches of Padre Island National Seashore when they go out on their early morning patrols looking for signs of sea turtles having come ashore to lay their eggs. Several large bales were discovered that way last June along the beaches of the National Seashore.
