1 Pot now nation's top cash crop, group says The Salina Journal Saturday, January 11,1986 Page 17 -25 Years In Salina - WASHINGTON (AP) - The value of U.S.-grown marijuana rose 12 percent last year to $18.6 billion in the face of the Reagan administration's highly publicized eradication campaign, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws said Friday. NORML, which advocates legalization of marijuana, said pot edged out corn by $17.5 million as the nation's No. 1 cash crop, but the latest Agriculture Department estimates set the value of the 1985 corn harvest at a minimum of $20.49 billion. NORML's report was disputed by the Drug Enforcement Administration, which last year intensified its anti-pot efforts with a campaign that last August found Attorney General Edwin Meese III leading a raiding party against an illegal plot in Arkansas. "NORML's figures, as always, are self-serving and highly inflated," said DEA spokesman Robert Feldkamp. He said the agency does not make estimates about the value of the domestic marijuana harvest. "There's no way to tell, but $18.6 billion is very, very, very high," said Feldkamp, who described the 1985 anti-pot battle as "a huge success" with plant eradications in all states. Standing firm on the estimate that pot topped corn, NORML's national director Kevin Zeese said: "It is ironic that marijuana became the most valuable U.S. crop in the same year that the DEA claimed it conducted eradication programs in all 50 states. Even with an all-out effort, the DEA failed miserably." NORML said the 1985 pot crop was worth $1.4 billion more than 1984's, with about 9 million pounds — more than double the DEA's estimate — grown each year. It said a principal reason for the greater value was marijuana growers using "the media attention on eradication as an excuse to raise prices." DEA and NORML also were at odds over how much of the pot consumed in America is homegrown. NORML said domestic dope provides 60 percent of the 1985 supply, up from 55 percent in 1985. DEA said the 1985 figure is 12 percent. The NORML report said pot is the most valuable crop in 18 states last year, with California topping the list at $2.5 billion, followed by Hawaii at $1.15 billion and Oregon at $1 billion. A. G.

Ninth, Kraft Manor (Next Door To Popingo Video) Woman spends two years of 'horror" awaiting trial McMartin LOS ANGELES (AP) - One of seven people facing trial in the McMartin Pre-School child molestation case waited Friday to learn if she would be released from jail after what her attorney called two years of horror. Peggy McMartin Buckey, 59, has been unable to post $1 million bail, said attorney Dean Gits, who Thursday asked Municipal Court Judge Aviva K. Bobb to reduce it to $240,000. Bobb said she would rule Friday. Buckey, her mother, son and daughter, along with three former McMartin teachers were ordered Thursday to stand trial on a total of 135 counts of molestation and a single count of conspiracy. Bobb's order abruptly ended the longest and costliest preliminary hearing in state history, which spanned 18 months and cost over $4 million. Five defendants are free on bail, but Buckey and her son, Raymond Buckey, 27, remained in custody since their arrests. A few months ago, Buckey's no- bail order was lifted and bail was set at $1 million. "My client has spent almost two years in custody — all in isolation. She has been subjected to threats and Poison is linked to toxic shock MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A second bacterial toxin has been found to cause toxic shock syndrome, and it may be responsible for up to 60 percent of the cases in non-menstrual patients, a researcher said Friday. The discovery could help doctors diagnose the illness, said Dr. Patrick M. Schlievert, a microbiology professor at the University of Minnesota who has pioneered research on the disease. "It's a known toxin. We just identified it as being associated with this illness. It's a toxin that's been associated with food poisoning," he said. The second toxin has similar effects but differs from a bacteria- induced poison Schlievert and other researchers identified in 1981 as causing toxic shock syndrome, he said. "Our immune system sees it; (the second toxin) differently," he said in an interview. "However, it still has the same biological activities." Until now, toxic shock syndrome had been associated only with a toxin called toxic shock syndrome toxin 1, or TSST1. It is believed responsible for all toxic shock cases found in menstruating women using tampons. Until last year, that group was believed to suffer the vast majority of the illnesses. has put up with what I would characterize as pure horror," Gits argued. "She has been almost set on fire, deprived of all physical contact — she's unable to even hold hands with her husband. She is unable to even communicate with her mother or children except in the courtroom," he said. All seven defendants were ordered Thursday to appear in Superior Court Jan. 23 to enter pleas. Fourteen children appeared at the preliminary hearing, held to determine if there was sufficient evidence for a Superior Court trial. The youngsters told of rape, sodomy and other abuses over several years, starting in 1978. They said they were stripped and photographed during "naked movie star games," then terrorized into silence by threats against their parents, animal mutilations and rituals involving people dressed in satanic costumes. Buckey's mother, Virginia McMartin, 78, the suburban Manhattan Beach preschool's founder, faces only the conspiracy charge. She is free on $5,000 bail. Bobb's decision to send the case to trial came without warning. "This is the most unfair, unjust and dishonest court and you don't have a chance of justice in California. She was against us from the beginning," McMartin said of Bobb and her decision.
