Sea Weed? Large Amounts of Marijuana Washing Ashore in Santa Barbara.

Santa Barbara officials are puzzled by large amounts of loose marijuana that have been washing up on the shore along West Beach.

The floating sea nugs were captured on this video taken by beachgoers. A dredging company says they also spotted marijuana floating in the sea water and notified Harbor Patrol on March 31.

Authorities can’t definitively say where the weed is coming from, but they aren’t ruling out the possibility of smugglers.
