A crime fun fact...

Did you know that before it was outlawed in 1937, hemp was used to make sail canvas?

Did you know that the word "canvas" is derived from the word "cannabis"?

Not surprisingly, Key West had a thriving hemp farming industry.  

And of course, William R. Hackley was ALL OVER that.

Especially before he "called on all the ladies."

From the Key West Citizen.
