ALABAMA: 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.
