Barrel Of Weed Washes Ashore In The Keys…I’m No Expert…Is This Good Weed?

I’m definitely not the guy you want judging good weed from bad weed. The experts over on Facebook claim this is bad weed that washed ashore in Marathon, Florida via a blue barrel that had 90 pounds of kush floating out in the Atlantic Ocean. Who knows how long it had been out there bobbing in the salt water. Do people still dump barrels of weed off boats like the old days now that weed is legal all over the place in the U.S.?

From the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office – Florida Keys:

Barrel of marijuana washes ashore in Marathon

A blue plastic barrel containing five separate bales/large plastic bags of marijuana totaling approximately 90 pounds was found in nearshore water at 109th Street Oceanside in Marathon on Thursday afternoon.

Deputies Kyle Chandler (left in the attached picture) and Darrel Walraven responded at 4:06 p.m. after someone found the barrel and called the Sheriff’s Office.

U.S. Border Patrol agents were called thereafter by the Sheriff’s Office. U.S. Border Patrol Agents took possession of the marijuana.

The Sheriff’s Office had no further involvement.

Let’s light this up and see if it’s any good.

Who knows how long that barrel has been floating in all this open water. However, that barrel looks too blue to have been out there for 10 years skunking up that weed.

Does weed go bad? Let’s check with the experts at

When you buy freshly cured marijuana, there’s a little moisture to the buds that makes them springy and squishy. Over time, depending on how you store it, weed will either dry out or become too wet. Plastic sandwich bags can let moisture out, with the eventual result of weed that crumbles and gives off harsh smoke. If you put your weed in the fridge or freezer, or leave it somewhere damp, it’s apt to grow mold — and it sure won’t burn well. Experts recommend keeping your stash in an airtight jar, at room temperature.
