A Florida man thought he had reeled in a big fish when he felt his line become taut, however, it wasn’t a fish he caught! Jorge Bustamante was fishing off the Atlantic Ocean on Pompano Beach when he caught...a two pound brick of marijuana!
Bustamante said the package of “weed” became hooked on, believe it or not, his “weed-line,” which he had been using to catch some mahi-mahi and kingfish. How appropriate!
Bustamante and his fellow fishermen contacted the United States Coast Guard, which took custody of the brick of pot. The story of how the marijuana got into the Atlantic Ocean in the first place would also be an interesting one to hear!
