Heroin, Mr. Towns explair.ed. was a
derlvatlve of opium, and was three
times as otrong in Wa offacta an the bu*
man organlsm as morphlno. In Other
words, a person who was accustomed to
take three gralns <f morphlno a, day
would ba satisfled with one grain of
heroin, and a person acqUttomid to
taklng three trrains of heroin would W
quire nine grains of inorpbtne to sat
isfy his cravtng.
An opium smoker, he went on. aVaOk*
Ing twenty-flve pill.s a day got only th"
equivalent of about a quarter of i
grain of morphine taken throuKh the
needle or of half a grain taken hy tlie
mouth. Codelnc, th- other opium
derlvatlve, waa only one-eighth Bfl
strong as morphine, aad aactorfl Cl
no reluctance about giving it, baca.
of Its comparatlve weakness. Put, Mr,
Towns asserted, It waa not the strengtn
or weakness of an opiate that formed
the habit, but the fact that it was an
Codeine Also Dangerous.
The eumulative flffoet of cod.lne. lie
held, wns Just as fligggtrmi as ihat of
opium and the habit it ongandarod Just
as den.orallzing. For this reas..n Mr.
Towns maintalned that Iti thi next law
against the drug evll the d"flnltlon of
habit-forming drugs should be BXtendl d
to cover not only ..plum and COCatl e,
bul such druga as sulphonnl, tri.-nal.
