Its use is particularly dangerous adolescents, of both sexes due to it leads to the commission of acts which normally would be prevented by a sense of moral restraint. The power to judge between right and wrong is obliterated, and the behaviour is characterized by foolhardiness and a complete lack of scruples. In the U.S. southwest, where the stuff has been grown and smoked illicitly for years, there are cities where approximately 50 percent of the crimes of violence are said to be attributable to marihuana ad- dicts. Little Information In spite of the widespread use of marihuana, and the complete ignorance on the part of the general public concerning its origin and effects, very little reliable information about the drug has been disseminated.

Probably the following from the International Narcotic Education association states the case as well as anything: "Marihuana is a most virile and powerful stimulant. The physiological effect of this drug produces a peculiar psychic, exaltation and derangement central nervous system. The stage of exaltation and confusion, more marked in some addicts than others. is generally followed by a stage of depression. "Sometimes the subject passes into a semi-conscious state, periencing vivid and extravagent dreams which vary according to the individual character and tality.

In some thia stage is one of self-satisfaction well being. In others it is alarming. presenting the fear of some indefinite danger or of impending death. "Later the dreams are sometimes followed by a state of complete unconsciousness. Sometimes convulsive attacks and acute mania are developed.

Can Be Deadly "The narcotic content of marihuana decreases the rate of the heart beat and causes of pulse. Death irregularity from the effect on the heart. "Prolonged use frequently develops a delirious rage which sometimes leads to high crimes, as criminal assault and murder. Hence marihuana has been called 'the killer The habitual use causes a very marked mental deterioration and sometimes- insanity. Hence it is frequently called 'loco Like the pleasures of every other fools' paradise, the exhiliration that comes through smoking marihuana can only be had at a price.

Just another case of the game not being worth the candle. Fined $200 For Possessing a Still Mike Peleschaty, 23, who pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing a still, seized at 1156 Main Dec. 14, 1937, was given a minimum sentence of $200 fine or three months in jail by Judge Whitla in county court today. The court took into consideration Peleschaty's youth and previous good record, but remarked that he had "a mistaken sense of loyalty to other persons involved." C. B.

Philp, K.C., for crown, had said that Peleschaty refused give police any information about other persons concerned in the ownership of the still.

William F.

Bennett, theatrical agency man, Thursday disclosed what he said was a sporting proposition between Ritchie Roberts, horse owner and trainer, and sportsman William Hyne, by the terms of which a Roberts-trained horse will attempt the swim and, incidentally, gain himself one or two tons of hay. Roberts expects to swim the Golden Gate, too, keeping his horse company. The sea-going horse, a sturdy animal named Blackie, was reported as being in the pink of condition after a year of rigorous training. Bennett said the proposition provided that Hyne would buy a ton of hay for Blackie and a dinner for a select group of sportsmen if the horse succeeded. Roberts, confident of his animal, will buy two tons of hay and pay for the dinner if the horse fails.

Blackie can't lose.
