Sheriff's Deputy John Palmer of Dexter shows part of the 30 pounds of marijuana weed he cut from a field inside the village limits of Dexter this week. The marijuana was first spotted by Dr. William Pidd, who informed Palmer. The deputy confirmed the identification, then cut it down. Although marijuana, a narcotic, is frequently found growing wild, Palmer found evidence that this particular patch may have been cultivated. Several of the weeds had been "topped" recently. The tops are used to prepare marijuana cigarets or "reefers."
