Up to 50 pounds found discarded in tourist-heavy eatery waste bin

    Here's what you normally find at Joe's Crab Shack.

    Come for the crab legs -- stay for the large amount of marijuana found stashed in a dumpster?

    Police responding to Joe's Crab Shack at Fisherman's Wharf made an odd discovery Monday: as much as "50 pounds" of marijuana, stuffed into trash bags, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

    Not much in the way of details are immediately available, but suffice to say the discovery is unusual.

    No word on how the weed got there or why -- and no word on whether the 50-pound estimate is accurate, the newspaper reported.

    Fifty pounds of marijuana could have a street value of well over $100,000.
