(Published by Arrangement.) THE U.S.A. DRUG EVIL. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 1 August 1925
(Published by Arrangement.) THE U.S.A. DRUG EVIL. "One of tlie admitted results of Prohibition," says the Glasgow "Ev ening Citizen" in a leading article, "has been the manufacture on an en ormous scale of poisonous wood alco hol which is palmod off as genuine spirits. Another is the spread of the traffic in drugs.

As a matter of fact offic ial figures can never be accepted as reflecting the real' situation when there is a large illicit traffic. "At the beginning of the Prohibi tion experiment it was pointed out that the suppression of the drink would lead to an increase in the con sumption o£ drugs. It is generally ac cepted that this is precisely what has occurred. "In considering whether Prohibi tion is good or had it is, therefore, necessary to keep in mind evrls which may have taken the pl...
