Coast Guard Seizes 900 Pounds of Marijuana

A major drug bust by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Officers took nine hundred pounds of pot, worth nearly $800,000.

When a small Coast Guard boat approached the smugglers off the coast of Haiti, they threw their cargo overboard.

As smugglers got rid of the drugs, a five hour chase began.

The smugglers got away, but the lost cargo is expected to do plenty of harm to the drug trade operation.
