    So did they catch anything?

    Sounds like one caught a buzz.

    Ok, then i don't understand. The guy was fine and then started going crazy...1.5 hours later. That seems like a long time.

    You're assuming he only hit it once. Seeing as he was stupid enough to snort unknown white powder found floating in the ocean in the first place, it stands to reason he kept going back for more.
    Etiher way, that level of stupidity should be rewarded with death.

    So, heroine can be white? That's not the color I see on the show COPS.

    Most heroines are white.

    Anyone consider the possibility that their story is BS? I think they know exactly what the dude took, and they dumped it to avoid possession charges.
    I'm pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have, in fact, caught and killed a large predator that supposedly injured some bathers. But, as you see, it's a beautiful day, the beaches are open and people are having a wonderful time. Amity, as you know, means "friendship".

    Well we're getting the story from a dude who hangs out with a dude who allegedly would pick up some strange object from the sea and stuff his face in to it and snort away.
    Time-line could greatly be effed, the story could be effed (however, most likely much of it is true, the true stuff tends to be way more wackier than fiction.

    I will say though.........losing the engine? Really? I couldn't lose my engine in the ocean, sober IF i had all the tools for petes sake
    I have a much bigger and more powerful button

    Imagine if they had stumbled across this:
    http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/coast-guard-180-million-in-cocaine-seized-from-1679660.html

    MIAMI — The U.S. Coast Guard has announced the capture of a submarine-like vessel off the Honduran coast and the seizure of some 15,000 pounds of cocaine with an estimated street value of $180 million.

    According to information released Monday by the Coast Guard district headquartered in Miami, the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Seneca interdicted a drug smuggling, self-propelled semi-submersible vessel in the western Caribbean Sea on July 13.

    The vessel was initially spotted by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection maritime patrol plane, officials said.

    The semi-submersibles are typically built in the jungles of Colombia and are less than 100 feet in length, authorities said. They're usually used to carry a crew of 4 to 5 people and a stash of thousands of pounds up drugs up to 5,000 miles. The semi-submersibles are designed to rapidly sink when detected in order to make it difficult for law enforcement to recover the drugs aboard.

    Video released by the Coast Guard shows a pursuit boat from the Boston-based Seneca encountering the semi-submersible in the open waters and taking an unspecified number of crewmembers into custody. The submarine-like vessel was sinking after being "scuttled by its crew," said Cmdr. Charles Fosse, the commanding officer of the Seneca in an audio interview released by the Coast Guard.

    Some drugs were recovered during the interdiction, but it would take several days before the Coast Guard, working with the Honduran Navy, could locate the sunken drug vessel.

    Ultimately, the Coast Guard Cutter Oak was able to use side-sonar equipment to guide the FBI Laboratory's Technical Dive Team from Quantico, Va., to the semi-submersible on the ocean floor.

    The Oak's commanding officer, Lt. Cmdr. Peter Niles, described the process as a "needle in a haystack search," but one that paid off handsomely.

    It took some three days to remove the more than 200 bales of cocaine from the sunken vessel.

    "This is once-in-a-career thing that happens," said Niles, a 27-year veteran of the Coast Guard.

    The case remains under investigation and the seized drugs are being turned over to other U.S. law enforcement agencies for disposition, the Coast Guard said.

    Pup, FYI, street slang for heroin is "white horse". Street slang for cocaine is "white pony". Those are pretty old school terms but just like how everything has gone retro those terms are back as well.

    GHB, MDMA or Meth are also other good possibilities. Theres a good number of drugs out there that are still trafficed in in kilo forms and are crystalized white. Plus they were probably drinking as well and mixing any of those with a bunch of alcohol will definitely push one over the edge.

    That is definitely not a cocaine reaction, considering the delay. A couple of snorts of pure coke won't kill you........otherwise dentists wouldn't keep a little in their office for certain applications. Pharmaceutical is 100% pure too. Sounds like meth reaction. I thought most of the heroin coming from Mexico was brown and largely unrefined compared to the middle eastern varieties.

    Bingo ! We have a winner !!!! No way coke would do that.... Either heroine or MDMA (3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine .

    I have also seen, heard of bundles of filler... A substance used to fill a load. Who knows what that could be. But in a shipment of 500lbs. Someone could swipe a 2 lb bundle and add junk to maintain the weight. Once that is found it would be thrown away.

    What a way to go... Then again, maybe they brought it with them, a couple of hits. Once his brother O.D. he had no choice but to call it a float up object.

    Something fishy with that story. Who will bring a Kilo of Coke onabaord and stay trolling? Then, open the batch, do some and keep on steaming while another loser ODs offshore.

    I call it BS, the dudes were high on their own stuff and blamed a square grouper they "found".

    Losers

    Hey, I beat him to it ! Anyway, they wont buy that crap and he had better get his story tight. But the 1.5 hour thing dont work. And depending upon what they find in his system will depend if they believe him or not. Sounds like it could have been a fight. Then the guy tossed all the other stuff around to make it look good. Should have a TV style court case....
