Tourists in the sunshine state can often find small seashells and colorful coral wash up on shore. Something most people don’t expect to find on the beach, though? 26 pound bricks of marijuana.
Since the beginning of the week, several bricks of the drug have washed up on the shores of Daytona Beach, Florida.
Someone called police once the drugs were spotted:
“We’re at Jungle Hut and a huge bundle of drugs or something just washed up on the beach.”
This comes as a result of Hurricane Florence, although no one is sure where the massive quantities of the drug are coming from.
Tourists aren’t complaining, though.
It comes as a shock to no one that tourists are attempting to snag some as a souvenir – and causing quite a stir with law enforcement. Multiple people have been spotted opening the bundles and attempting to steal the marijuana, and as a result, arrested on possession charges.

“There’s like seven or eight people out here, and they’re all like huddling up against it, and my dad’s trying to take it so that you guys can have it all.”
Twitter couldn’t help but crack a few jokes:
Doesn't it have to belong to someone to be stolen? Who is claiming it?

He was only trying to help clean the beach.

Would the finders keepers rule apply in this case?
If it does, that would explain the fighting amongst beachgoers.
i guess finders keepers doesn't apply here
