The owner of the farm, Thomas Perry, maintained his innocence in the matter, stating that the loco weed just grew naturally, and that he was unaware that it was marijuana. Evidently, the authorities believed him, as he was not prosecuted. However, he was ordered to plow the field under. Somehow, I'm a little skeptical about Mr. Perry's assertions, but you be the judge. I clipped out the article to share it with you.
The Perry farm was on Old Stage Road, according to the 1930 Little Egg Harbor census. That would put it in the Galetown section of Little Egg Harbor. Thomas was born in Texas, and his wife, Inez, was born in Virginia. His occupation is listed as truck farming.
