33. During WWII here
They grew hemp everywhere for the war, the hemp grew everywhere, along side the railroad tracks and every country road. This continued up to the eighties when st. ronnie supercharged the drug war, there was an eradication program that cleaned out the old fields and roadsides, they can't keep it from growing along the tracks, it's about the only place to find it growing wild here now.
This place used to be famous for the wild hemp pickers would show up every fall and the local constabulary and farmers would trap and bust them for marijuana possession even though it was only hemp.
