From the Feb. 3, 1961, edition of The Leonard Graphic:
Constable Morris Issues Warnings Of Illegal Sales Here
Constable Wade Morris says he has received numerous complaints from citizens about local people being affected by the use of rubbing alcohol, extracts, Bay Rum, and canned heat.
Morris has warned the local merchants of the danger involved when people purchase these products for human consumption.
County Attorney Tibby Wright stated "a person who is convicted for knowingly selling these products for human consumption faces a fine of $100 to $1,000.00, or one year in prison, or both."
The Constable said he is asking the co-operation of merchants in this serious matter as an effort in curbing the purchase of such items by users in this area.
