An investigation is under way after more than two pounds of marijuana washed up on the shores of Laguna Beach Wednesday.

Marine Safety Lifeguards at Irvine Cove Beach reported clumps of marijuana coming ashore around 1 p.m.

The clumps settled at the north end of the beach in between the rocks, sand and tide line but were shortly collected by officers.

Investigators believe the marijuana came from a smuggling boat that lost its load or sank.

No other physical evidence was found.

The investigation is ongoing.
