Used to have a bird dog that was from Ohio . Sometime in late 70’s .
He was a government inspector for REA systems , older fellow , cool fellow .
He used to tell us how funny it was to watch the hippie’s at harvest time .
They were growing amongst the wild hemp supposedly for blending in .
Said the wild stuff grew thick along the RR tracks .
Some places supposedly had overgrown tracks of land far enough away from the tracks not to be affected by spray and some areas were seriously neglected.
His home overlooked such an area and he said they were like ants harvesting .
He was the type that never met a stranger and we had a professional grower working with us , so he picked the guys story pretty well and the fellow always had a calm and good answer.
He also conversed with the hippies crossing his property, his only stipulation was they not damage fence or property.
Used to be line contractors had an interesting variety of workers .
But osha and electrical suppliers eventually regulated these people out .
