The present bulletin is the seventeenth in the series of digests of comments. Like the preceding issues, it is a comprehensive index of the available literature published in 1921 in connection with the two official drug standards of the United States, the Pharmacopeia and National Formulary. Comments on the items contained in these two standards should, therefore, be of immediate value. In addition, comments have been made on foreign drug standards for purposes of comparison. There has been much comment on the antinarcotic laws. The cultivation of medicinal plants continues to be a subject of widespread interest. The abstracts contained in the bulletin are prepared with a view to making them suitable merely as working references, the intent being to call attention to the character and scope of the papers reviewed rather than to record their actual contents, or to make critical comment.
