Volusia County Beach Safety said the unusual find was found at about 11 a.m. in northern Ormond Beach.
Officials found 23 smaller packages of marijuana in the bale.
They said they don't know where it came from, but Beach Safety said in a news release that when ocean currents and winds are strong, packages like this occasionally wash ashore.
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Laura Williams said the street value of the 66 pounds of marijuana is $132,000, or $2,000 per pound.
In layman's terms, that is a lot of smackaroos.
Beach Safety turned the marijuana over to the Sheriff's Office for destruction.
