The U.S. Coast Guard offloaded nearly 3,500 pounds of marijuana, worth an estimated wholesale value of $3 million, at Coast Guard Base Miami Beach, Florida, on June 7. The drugs were seized on May 10 in the Caribbean Sea during a counter-drug patrol by the Royal Netherlands Navy vessel, HNLMS Friesland.
