ST. LOUIS. Mo., Sept. 9—(U.R)—
The war with Japan has virtually
halted the smuggling of opium in-
j to the United States and forced
tliousands of narcotic addicts to
take the cure—whether they want
to or not.
John M Tuliey. neac o. the St. i
Louis bureau of the treasury de- |
partlnent's narcotic division, re- [
vealed today that wartime condi- '
tions have greatly reduced the !
number of drug addicts because
of their inability to obtain contra- I
band drugs. He predicted that if
the war with Japan continues an-
other year, drug addiction In the
United States may be completely
wiped out.
Tuliey reported that there are
less than 50 of what he called "non-
medical users of narcotic drugs" In
the eastern federal district of Mis-
souri as compared to more than 500
in 1941 before the Pear) Harbor at-
| tack.
Importation of opium, the basic
property of practically all habit
I forming drugs." Tuliey explained.
| "is so restricted today that the
I supply is barely adequate to meet
the demand for legitimate users of
1 drugs.
Strict Supervision

the United States that process
