STUART, Fla. Thirteen people have been arrested in an international drug bust that focused on marijuana being smuggled here from Jamaica by boat, then on to Canada in tractor trailers, officials announced today. 
Authorities seized 6,800 pounds of marijuana and about 1,200 pounds of hash oil from a sport-fishing boat that docked late Saturday behind a waterfront home in Stuart, the U.S. Customs Service said. The investigation into the smuggling operation began in January, according to Customs officials who worked with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the U.S. federal Drug Enforcement Administration and the Martin County Sheriff's Office. Seven people were arrested at the boat in Stuart. All were to be charged with conspiracy, possession and intent to distribute a controlled substance, the Customs Service said. Stuart is on Florida's east coast, about 100 miles north of Miami. Another six people were arrested by Canadian authorities Sunday.
