A BOAT CONTAINING an estimated tonne of cannabis washed ashore the California coast yesterday.

The cannabis was seized by the authorites after the 30-foot boat was spotted near some rocks at Leo Carrillo State Beach in Malibu.

The LA Times reports that Pangas have become popular among smugglers to ferry both up the California coastline, with Sky2 in LA reporting that one man has been arrested.

The circumstances that resulted in the boat full of drugs washing ashore are unknown.
