An 11-pound 'blunt' washed up on Daytona Beach last weekend

A Daytona man was a little dazed and confused after finding a suspicious package while walking on the beach last weekend.

Last Saturday, March 25, Jeff Stolowitz found 11 pound of marijuana wrapped in an 18-inch package, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

According to the Sentinel, until Volusia County Beach Safety officers arrived, Stolowitz had no idea that the blunt-like object consisted of 11 pounds of weed.

Blood was also found on the package, something that authorities said drug smugglers might have used to distract drug-sniffing dogs.

After the drugs were tested, the package was destroyed.
