(Reefer Madness Era)

[Last update September 11, 2016 ]

It has been said that one man’s mountain is another man’s molehill.   An expression which, due to the nature of the subject matter at hand, one would do well to recall.   - - Simply put, what constitutes “Reefer Madness” to one individual; May or may not constitute Reefer Madness to another.   Thus, what is presented here is (what can be considered at best) a hodgepodge of old Marihuana mentions.

In addition, no pretense of any kind is made that this list is complete in any way shape or form.   What is indexed below is simply what this museum was able to locate and that is that.   HOWEVER, it does provide the reader as well as the historian, with a good starting point for future research on the subject.

Last of all, BEWARE;/b> -- While every effort has been made at accuracy.   Obviously, due to a merit of factors; MISTAKES, (spelling, dating, etc.) errors in all probability HAVE BEEN MADE.

T w o Men Arrested By U . S. Agents; Dope Worth $ 5,000 Seized

Minneapolis, Feb. 10---- (AP) --- Smashing what they claimed to be a nationwide mairhuana (sic) ring with headquarters in southern Minnesota, federal narcotics agents today had under arrest three men, two of them seized with a trunkful of marihuana which agents said was worth $5,000.
Jesus Gonzales, 28, and [Frank Mujica] Mujuica, 24 were arrested at a farmhouse on the outskirts of Frost, Minn., in Faribault county, 10 miles east of Blue Earth.   In Chicago agents captured Premetibo Castro.
At least 11 others, some of them known to narcotics agents, were being sought elsewhere, as far away as principal distributing outlets in New York, Pennsylvania and in Chi-
The arrests were made after several months of investigation by Emanuel Elbaum, narcotics agent who charged the men had shipped the drug as far as New York, Pennsylvania, Chicago and other parts of Illinois.
Elbaum said the confiscated Marihuana weighted 125 pounds and was one of the largest seizures of the prepared dope ever made by narcotics agents.
Agents said Gonzales also was wanted by the Chicago office of the narcotics bureau.
Also under arrest in connection with the case is Premetibo Castro, of Chicago, alleged by Joseph Bell, northwest federal narcotic supervisor, to be an agent of the two at Frost.
The case has been under investigation for four months, Bell said.

Chicago- New York Syndicate Accused; Seize 15,000 Tons From Minn,

New York, May L —Sixteen persona accused of being members of an Interstate dope ring, which government agents said controlled enough marihuana to manufacture 30,000,000,000 cigarets, were Indicted here today.   Assistant U. S. Attorney David L. Marx, who secured the indictments, said G-men had confiscated two dope factories and 15,000 tons of the narcotic weed.   They have established a patrol about an eight-town area in Minnesota w here the syndicate established its production source.
Chicagoans involved
The ring smuggled 150,000 marihuana cigarets into the Harlem area here every three weeks, Marx said.   The group, he charged, was financed by New York and Chicago racketeers who planned to build up a dope growing and dope-selling syndicate rivaling the famous whisky gang combines of prohibition days. The grand jury was given evidence that the ring, operating principally out of New York and Chicago, gets Its supplies around the towns of Frost, Wells, Blue Earth, Bricelyn, Delavan, Alden and Kiester, Mina., and Scaivilie, Iowa.   Factories at Frost and Blue Earth were seized by G men who have literally established armed occupation of the area.
Four Crops A Year
Hundreds of farmers in the district were underwritten, at the rate of $50 per acre, Marx charged, for four crops of marihuana per season, by the syndicate, operating as the Chicago grain exchanges underwrite wheat or corn growers. G men reported that a narcotic cigaret plant at Frost was dynamited some months ago by a rival marihuana gang.  The New-York Chicago syndicate promptly erected and dug a fortified m oat around a plant at Blue Earth, near by. The New Yorkers indicted include Leopoldo-Trevino, described as chief roadman of the ring; Miss Lupe Almarez, a resident in Trevino’s home; Margharitta Villareal, described as a dispenser of the manufactured cigarets, and Miss Villareal’s brothers, Figaro and Anthony.
Farmers Indicted
Others Indicted Included Jesus Gonzales and Frank Mujika, farmers of Frost; Primatlvo Castro of Chicago, said to be one of the lead era of the ring; and Fernando Vasquez.   Juan Sanchez, Louis Franco, Salvatore Perez, Domingo Solis and Marcilino Rogaz, whose addresses were not given. Marihuana, unknown generally ten years ago, is a variant of the Texas loco weed, bane of western cattle herds.  The dangerous spread of the marihuana-smoking habit is generally construed as a depression phenomenon, and led to enactment of the stiff federal statute by congress last fall.

The case, the first of its kind to come up in Blue Earth courts, was passed over to a special term of district court to be held at Blue Earth, July 18.
The youth, Lawrence Hassing, forged the name of his mother, Mrs Joe Hassing, to the check which was passed on a garage at Minnesota Lake for repairs on a car.  It was to have been made good by his own earnings or prosecution would follow.  He did not make It good.
Hassing told the court of association with a man who induced him to make “reefers,” slang expression for marihuana cigarets.  He said the man urged him to write checks while under the influence of the narcotic.

The members of Leo Carey Post, No. 56 and the Auxiliary, realizing the marihuana menace In this nation today, and knowing that the state 0* Minnesota is infested with this weed, are co-operating whole-heartedly in a statewide drive of eradication.
The members of these organizations in Free born county, are sparing no time nor expense in a program that will do much in cleaning out the many patches of this weed, scattered all over the county.  The Tribune is gladly giving them space for their publicity, telling of the dangers that confront men and women who persist in using marihuana.  It’s one of the most ruinous drugs ever used by mankind, as it affects every part of the mind and body.   Jails and asylums are crowded with victims of this weed, who have committed violent crimes against society.
A great majority of the people do not know what marihuana is —or what it looks like when growing.  If you will look in another place in tonight’s issue of the Tribune you will find an article, including a photograph, taken by the Tribune camera man, of a leaf.  You will also find in this article the description of the plant.
Anyone who has a patch of weeds on his place, and believes it might be marihuana, should call the American Legion headquarters in Albert Lea or any member of the American Legion auxiliary.  A representative will be sent to your p la c e at once to investigate.  Also if any one hears of a person selling marihuana cigarettes or the plants--or growing them --- don’t hesitate to call up any member of Leo Carey post.
The members of the Legion and Auxiliary are to be commended for lending their services to eradicate this menacing weed in Minnesota.

A Rochester youth who attended church regularly and said he never drank or smoked told Judge Vernon Gates of Rochester yesterday that he had participated in a $350 damage spree July 4, throwing pop bottles through store windows and at automobiles after he smoked a cigaret that made him feel dizzy.   The youth (Harold Sonnenberg, 18) said he and three other defendants, after smoking the cigarettes, smashed windows in eight grocery stores and nine automobiles by throwing bottles.   They first broke the store windows with milk bottles, then stole a case of soft drinks from a store, and armed themselves with these bottles.   The four boys were charged with grand larceny and burglary in connection with the window drinks and a car mirror and wind shield wiper.  Judge Gates deferred sentence.  Sonnenberg informed the court that they received the cigarettes from a young woman whom they had taken out for a ride.   Officers believe the cigarettes contained marihuana and the woman who handed out the cigarettes is still at large.
