    Dude, didn't we have 60 pounds of pot?



    TAMPA, Fla. - The Florida Highway Patrol says anyone missing two big bags of pot can call their Tampa area office. A crew picking up litter from along Interstate 4 near Tuesday morning made an unusual find: two big plastic garbage bags stuffed with freshly harvested marijuana.

    FHP Trooper Larry Coggins says the 60 pounds of pot might be worth around $54,000 on the street. It probably fell off or was thrown from a car on the interstate.

    The plants appeared freshly picked and some had intact roots.

    Coggins says it's not the largest amount of pot ever dumped along a roadside, but it's certainly not a common find.

    So by my guess (uneducated guess, of course...), there would be no more than 1/3 that weight of smokeable herb in that stash.

    It seems weird to me that someone would put whole stalks of pot in trash bags to be thrown away.

    My initial feeling is that some kid's parents found his garden and ditched the weed as opposed to calling the cops.
