The way we were

From The Miami News, March 21,1961

Fifty years ago today, state and federal agents arrested 8 people "in marijuana raids on a 38-foot sloop at Dinner Key Marina" and an address in Hialeah.

The agent in charge described the 8 as "beatnik types combined with the racetrack crowd."

In his story, The Miami News reporter noted that one of those arrested "wore a Van Dyke beard."
