Sixty-four sailors that worked aboard the aircraft carrier that buried Osama bin Laden at sea will be discharged from the Navy for drug use, reports Fox News.

Capt. Greg Hicks of the Third Fleet said that the Navy is still investigating the drug use aboard the USS San Francisco, the floating dry dock Arco, and the USS Carl Vinson, and is unsure if it took place during the Middle East mission.

Although the timeline is unclear, all the sailors, the majority of whom were found using the designer drug “Spice,” will all be kicked out of the Navy, Hicks said.

Forty-nine of the sailors were found to be selling the designer drug while six admitted to additionally using cocaine, one admitted to be using methamphetamines.
