Due to lack of material resources, at the present time we can only post this temporary website dealing with the STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA during the Reefer Madness Era.   It is our hope to have a full website for the state running sometime in the future.   But (again) due to lack of resources this will be a long while.   For now we hope that this quickie, quickie will be of some help to researchers into the era.

Oddly enough, there aren’t that many Gore File cases that originated out of Pennsylvania.   A situation that seems very odd considering the fact that Harry Anslinger himself was a Pennsylvanian.   In fact the following are the only ACTUAL Gore File cases that we know of.

Name: Henry Lite (or Lile) - Location: - Lebanon PA.   - Date: - Jan 8, 1936

What the Narc’s were claiming
"Early this year the Pennsylvania State Bureau of Narcotics arrested a peddler reported to be supplying marihuana cigarettes to boys attached to a CCC camp in Lebanon county.   -- Oakland Tribune (Newspaper) Oct. 11, 1936 “Don't be a MuggleHead”

PENNSYLVANIA -Lebanon On November 21, 1935, Henry Liles (colored) was arrested in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, by State officers for selling marihuana cigarettes.   He was prosecuted under the State marihuana Law, convicted and sentenced to serve one year in the Lebanon County Jail.   -- On searching the residence of Henry Liles, at the time of his arrest, the officers found about two pounds of marihuana prepared for smoking and about one-half pound of seed.   The marihuana and seed were seized by the officers and destroyed by burning.   --- ILLICIT TRAFFIC IN MARIHUANA - aka Gore File

PENNSYLVANIA -Harrisburg On January 8, 1936, the sale of marihuana cigarettes to boys in the CCC Camps in Lebanon county, was broken up with the jailing of a dope salesman.   On information supplied at the CCC camp, the State Bureau of Narcotics swore out a warrant for the arrest of the narcotic peddler.   --- ILLICIT TRAFFIC IN MARIHUANA - aka Gore File
[S]-Jan 8, 1936 P5 - “Curb Traffic In Narcotics At CCC Camps”
“The Department of Health announced today that it has stopped the traffic in marihuana cigarets being sold to boys in CCC camps in Lebanon county.   Through the work of agents of the division of Narcotic Control, Henry Lite, Negro, was arrested and charged with illegal sale of narcotics.   Confronted in Lebanon county court with a boy from the CCC camp at Lickdale to whom he was alleged to have sold cigaretts, Lite pleaded guilty and was sentenced to one year in the county jail and fined $100 and costs.   Agents of the Bureau of Narcotics Control were, called in by Lebanon county authorities when the traffic in the Mexican drug was discovered.   Dr. John H. Remig, an inspector for the Division swore out a warrant for Lite’s arrest on information supplied at the CCC camp.   Dr. Paul Rogers, chief chemist of the Division of Narcotic Control testified in court that cigarets sold by Lile were made from Marihuana.

[Key-finder - Case #I91]

Try as we might, the museum has NOT been able to actually verify that any of the following actually took place.   NOTE; this does not mean that such or such an incident DID NOT TAKE place, only that up until now we have not been able to locate any actual evidence (other than what the narc’s are saying) that they actually did.

PENNSYLVANIA - Malvern & Howellville   During the Spring of 1935, reliable information was received to the effect that a field located on the Lincoln Highway near Malvern, and another one located on the Swedeboro and Paoli Road near Howellville, were under cultivation for illicit marihuana purposes.   The field adjacent to the Lincoln Highway near Malvern was found to consist of about an acre, that had originally been planted with corn but between each row of corn were found fine samples of the marihuana weed, clearly showing indication of conscientious cultivation.   This field was found in control of Luis Manon, a native of San Domingo, and a track walker for the Pennsylvania Railroad.   Manon on being questioned regarding the marihuana on his land denied any knowledge thereof.   After thoroughly destroying the marihuana, the police took the matter up with the county attorney who ordered the arrest of Manon and his wife for prosecution under Pennsylvania State Narcotic Laws.   The field discovered at Swedeboro and Paoli Road near Howellville was found to be under control of a Mexican named Michael Ruiz, who operates a truck garden on his property but was apparently cultivating a quantity of marihuana as a side line.   Ruiz had about an acre and a half planted with marihuana.   --- ILLICIT TRAFFIC IN MARIHUANA - aka Gore File

PENNSYLVANIA -Malvern   On July 9, 1935, police found a field of about one acre used for raising marihuana located near Marvern, Chester County, Pennsylvania.   The marihuana had been planted in uniform rows and had been cultivated to increase production.   It was seized, cut down and destroyed by burning.   The officers estimated the amount destroyed, usable for smoking, to have been about 150 pounds.

The owner was arrested, prosecuted and convicted under the State Marihuana Law, and sentenced to serve one year in the Chester County Jail and fined $300.   --- ILLICIT TRAFFIC IN MARIHUANA - aka Gore File

PENNSYLVANIA -Howellville   On July 16, 1935, Police found a field of about one half acres used for raising marihuana located near Howellville, Chester County, Pennsylvania.   The marihuana had not been planted in uniform rows.   The growth indicated the seed had been scattered or sown and had not been cultivated to increase production.   The marihuana was seized, cut down and destroyed by burning.   The officers estimated the amount destroyed usable for smoking to have been about 100 pounds.   The man who was reported to the officers as being the owner of the field was never apprehended or arrested.   --- ILLICIT TRAFFIC IN MARIHUANA - aka Gore File

PENNSYLVANIA -Langeleth   On August 13, 1935, a field of about three acres used for raising marihuana was located near Langeloth, Washington County, Pennsylvania.   The marihuana was planted in uniform rows and concealed by the planting of several rows of corn around the outside of the marihuana field.   It was seized, cut down and destroyed by burning.   The officers estimated the amount destroyed, usable for smoking, to have been about 250 pounds.   The owner was arrested, prosecuted and convicted under the State Marihuana Law, receiving a sentence of 3 months in the Washington County Jail and fined $500.   At the time the man was arrested the officers searched his residence and found about 10 pounds of marihuana prepared for smoking, which was also seized and destroyed.   --- ILLICIT TRAFFIC IN MARIHUANA - aka Gore File

PENNSYLVANIA -Quarryville   On August 22, 1935, information was received that marihuana was being raised in a field near Quarryville, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

The officers made an investigation and located the field, as reported, but saw on arrival that someone had destroyed the marihuana several days before by cutting it down and burning it.   The remaining part of the plants or stalks in the plot, about one more in area, indicated the marihuana seed was sown and not planted in uniform rows.   The owner of the field could never be located.     --- ILLICIT TRAFFIC IN MARIHUANA - aka Gore File

PENNSYLVANIA -Goosetown   On November 11, 19.35, a field of about 5 acres used for raising marihuana was located in the mountains near Goosetown, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania.   Upon investigation the officers found part of the marihuana had been harvested and part of it destroyed by plowing it under.   It was planted in uniform rows of corn and well concealed.   -- On searching the small sheds near the field the officers found about two pounds of marihuana prepared for smoking and about two pounds of marihuana seed in glass jars.   The seeds were seized and destroyed by burning.   --- ILLICIT TRAFFIC IN MARIHUANA - aka Gore File

PENNSYLVANIA - Pittsburgh   On February 14, 1936, Jose Rodriequez was arrested by Pittsburgh Police for possession of 402 grains of marihuana.   He was first fined $10.00 and costs, but was rearrested by police and taken before an Alderman, who held him for the Grand Jury under bond.   At present he is confined in the County Jail in default of bond.   --- ILLICIT TRAFFIC IN MARIHUANA - aka Gore File

Malvern and Howelville, Pa   - On July 1 and 16, 1935, respectively, State enforcement officers visited certain farms situated near Malvern and Howelville, Pa., and discovered 2 1/2 acres of cannabis under cultivation concealed by fields of growing corn.   The fields were destroyed.   Although it was not possible to estimate correctly the amount of cannabis which might have been harvested if the plants had been allowed to mature, the opinion was expressed that the fields would have yielded approximately 27 pounds of the drug.   The defendants, Luis Manon and Michael Ruiz, were held for prosecution.

COATESVILLEI, PA.   -- 1937   Acting on information that Joe Gracia was selling marihuana in Coatesville, Pa., narcotic officers assisted by local officers made purchases from him totaling approximately 2 pounds, then arrested Gracia and seized from the basement of his home one large trunk containing 487 ounces of marihuana and one small wooden drum containing 328 ounces of marihuana.   Gracia was tried, convicted, and sentenced to serve 3 years in a Federal penitentiary.   -- The Traffic in Opium and Other Dangers Drugs (1937)

PHILADELPHIA, PA.   - On Oct. 22 and 23, 1937, two plots of marihuana were found in the heart of the city of Philadelphia.   The marihuana---about 3,000 plants on one plot and 3,500 plants on the other---was cut and burned by Federal and State officers.

Philadelphia - (From mag. Dated may 1934) -- NOT AN OFFICIAL GORE FILE CASE
From Philadelphia recently the papers reported the following story: An alleged "hop joint," fitted out with cheap bunks wherein addicts could lie and hide their troubles behind clouds of marihuana smoke was uncovered recently by Captain Kronbar and a squad of men when they raided a place on juniper street, below Lombard.
Approximately $10,000 worth of marihuana was seized and two women and two men, were arrested.   The seizure of the drug, which was outlawed by Pennsylvania last September, is the largest ever made here.   More than one hundred pounds of marihuana, some of it rolled into cigarettes, some packaged apparently for delivery, still more in the plain weed state, were seized.   Recently a number of arrests were made in Pittsburgh's "Hill" district, breaking up a ring of marihuana peddlers and addicts.   Three Mexicans and one Negro were arrested in one of the raids and a quantity of marihuana was confiscated. --

Unless you live in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, you might never have heard of this guy.   But to students of Reefer Madness-ology, he was a legend in his own day.   According to the Gazette Bulletin (Dec. 22, 1938)
"Capt. Joseph M. Schmucker Writes About Evils of Weed.   --- To Distribute Copies In Schools.
Capt. Joseph M. Schmucker of the Williamsport Police Department who for the past year has been off giving lectures on the evils of marihuana to high schools, temperance unions and other civic groups throughout the state.   Announced last night he has prepared a five page pamphlet entitled “The Marihuana Menace.”. . . Montoursville High School and the county W.C.T.U.   It is Schmucker’s aim to have a copy sent to all schools in the state and later to distribute the pamphlet to all who may desire them.   They will be free of charge he said.   "--- Gazette Bu lletin -- Dec. 22, 1938
Unfortunately, try as we may, this museum has never been able to obtain a copy of the actual pamphlet.   The Williamsport (Pa.) police department, local libraries, etc., and nothing.   The following is all we know about it:
1938 - The Marihuana Menace
-- By Capt. Joseph M. Schmucker of the Williamsport Police Department. 5 page
From newspaper accounts, we know that he was very active in public events, police fraternal organizations etc.   But by far (as the section below from a High School year book shows), his major interest was in young people.
Dickerson Union Dickerson Union

He was also politically astute, running for and elected county Sheriff.

[ Newspaper Campaign Ad - Gazette Bulletin Aug 3, 1943 ]

A pity, if only he (and a few others like him), had been on our side there is a good chance that the anti-Medical Cannabis laws would have never gotten on the books.

NO, this index of (what may or may not be) Reefer Madness Newspaper articles is NOT COMPLETE and in fact is anything but.   At best it should be thought of as a starting point for historical scholars doing research into the origin of the anti-Medical Cannabis laws.
