The U.S. Coast Guard offloaded more than 27,000 pounds of cocaine worth about $360 million in Florida on Friday.

The drugs were delivered to the Miami Beach base by the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Tampa, based in Portsmouth, Virginia. Three Coast Guard crews intercepted 12 separate drug smuggling vessels off the coasts of Mexico, Central America and South America in international waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean.


And no, there won't be a statewide blow distribution – the Coast Guard plans to destroy all 27,000 pounds of cocaine.
