The 25 Biggest Marijuana Busts in L.A. History

7. Nearly $8 Million Worth of Weed Found Floating Near Los Angeles

Date: July 2012
Location: Los Angeles

The feeling of forgetting something is a terrible one, so how do you feel when that something is nearly $8 million worth of weed. Members of the U.S. Coast Guard discovered 8,500 pounds of marijuana inside of a panga boat 160 miles West of L.A. The aquatic smuggling of drugs was pretty popular last year, and this was one of the largest seizures in the area. However, Streetgangs.com says that dollar figure is off; according to them, the weed is probably worth between $2 and $3 million. This discovery yields several questions, mainly who left it there, why and are they still alive today?
