tnwrtd M itcond claw mntter nt the pottofflce at AtgonB Iowa tM«n>, Kov. 1, 1032. under Act of Congress of'Mivrch 3. 1876 j laigona Be* jMoineg Marijuana Map Includes Kossuth Area Disclosure that groups of young people from eastern areas had been visiting Iowa in search of marijuana, and that they had in their possession maps which indicated where marijuana could be found, has some special significance for Kossuth county. The map indicated that there are spots in Kossuth where marijuana is said to grow. Marijuana is a weed related to the hemp family. During world War n, with the loss of hemp supplies from the far Pacific, domestic hemp was raised throughout Iowa, including Kossuth county, and the government set up hemp decordicating plants for processing the native-grown hemp which is basic to rope and twine, One of these plants was located in Algona and was the original structure where the Weidenhoff Corp. plant is now located. Although hemp has not been grown here for over 20 years, some of the areas along railroad tracks and ditches are known to still produce wild hemp or marijuana. The map said to have been produced in the east evidently was based on the areas adjacent to the location of the old hemp decordicating plants, of which Algona was one. There have been no local reports of marijuana searchers in this area, nor have there been any reports of unusual growths of the hemp by-product, but some probably do exist in isolated areas.
