I live just an hour’s travel from the Gulf of Mexico, which is 1 of the greatest spots in the world to fish; My son-in-law Mikey will often come out with me.
All of us get up before dawn so that Mikey and I can be out in the open water ready to fish by first light. All of us head back in by noon, before the brutal humidity and heat of the noontime sun can wear us out. A few weeks ago Mikey and I were going back into the docks when our boat bumped up against something. Much to my shock and chagrin, it was a huge bale of cannabis. The way it was tightly wrapped up in a thick waterproof lining indicated that this cannabis was being smuggled into the country, and must have fallen overboard somehow. I wanted to keep on going, however before I could stop him Mikey grabbed the gaff and pulled the cannabis on board. Mikey said there must have been a hundred pounds of it, and the bale of cannabis had a street value of tens of thousands of dollars! Mikey had a lot more experience with cannabis than I did, and he had some large plans for this weed. Mikey told myself and others that the cannabis belonged to both of us, and he would split all profits from it with myself and others 50-50. I was just sad about having possession of this much marijuana, because if the law caught us both of us would seem like weed smugglers. I’m not a cannabis dealer, I’m just a normal fellow! On the other hand, could I absolutely walk away from tens of thousands of dollars?
