Pot Smuggling Boat Washes Up on Dana Point Beach

A boat containing 740 pounds of marijuana was discovered on Monday, at approximately 6 a.m., but so far nobody has come to claim the haul, leaving experts guessing that it was most likely a Mexican cartel smuggling operation gone awry.

The first clue: The boat was heading north whenever its occupants ditched the craft and the weed, the OC Register reported. The second, authorities say, is that it is a "panga" style boat. According to Wikipedia, a panga is a Central American or Mexican skiff.

The final clue: Border Patrol agent Jerry Conlin estimated the value of the weed at $444,000.

That's a dead giveaway that this mota is pura mexicana. If this were high-quality California bud, the number would be much higher. The going rate for medical cannabis nowadays is $60 per eighth of an ounce. Do the math and 740 pounds of the stuff would be valued at $5,683,200. Based on the Border Patrol's math, this Mexican weed is worth $600 per pound or just $37.50 per ounce.

Experts consulted by the Weekly who wish to remain anonymous say that the Mexican cartels know their cheap weed can't really compete with medical marijuana in terms of quality, so the stuff on the captured boat was likely destined for distribution by street gangs. Either that, or turned into marijuana byproducts like hash, kief, tinctures or edibles which are now available at many marijuana dispensaries. One cannabis club owner even says this Mexican grass is often marketed by unscrupulous clubs as "Train Wreck."

That's just one person talking, of course. Who knows, maybe they should rename the strain "Shipwreck"?

Dude, you live in SoCal and don't know what a panga is--worse, think that we all have to be informed what it is. No wonder you think Mexicans are so wonderful, you've never seen them in their native habitat.

Where did you get your 'going rate for medical cannabis' number Matt? I don't believe that is accurate.

Actually, Jason, Matt didn't write this, I did. The "going rate for medical cannabis" number of $60 per eighth is taken from a random sampling of menus from cannabis clubs offering high-quality medicine. Eighths can and do cost less than that, though, so point taken...

Lets refrain from using the word "medicine". We know why that shit is smoked and who is smoking it.

Um, are you familiar with the word "wholesale"?
