UNIFAX Painkiller Supply D windling READ THE WANT ADS! NEW YORK (UPI) -The] federall government's effort to! fight heroin addiction by paying Turkish farmers not to grow opium poppies has helped create a shortage of the painkillers morphine and codeine in the United States, says an American Medical Association report. Draft Report The draft report, which will be voted on during the AMA's convention itihis week, said if an adequate supply of opium is not restored the shiortage "will lead in the near future to the unavailability of drugs essential to good patient care." Morphine, codeine and heroin are derived 1 from opium. lit urged the government to "take all measures necessary in the present emergency and in future years to insure that an ample supply of opium and its derivatives are made available to the medical profession." The report, prepared for the AMA's Board of Trustees, was made public Sunday at the opening of the group's 122nd annual convention at the Americana Hotel.

In 1971 President Nixon announced the government of Turkey had agreed to halt by June 1972 the cultivation of opium poppies, from which an estimated two-thirds ^of the heroin reaching America was derived. . , The U.S. reportedly gave the Turkish, government $35 million to compensate the opium farmers for their losses.
