(Newser) – Authorities in Spain just found a ton of cocaine. Literally. Authorities found 37 large backpacks floating along the Mediterranean coast, jammed with about 2,000 pounds of the drug. The backpacks had flotation devices that kept them below the surface of the water but prevented them sinking. They also had satellite-tracking devices.
