To the Editor:—
In The Journal, April 1, you published a communication from J. Bouquet, M.D., expert on the Narcotics Commission of the League of Nations, Hospital Sadiki, Tunis, in which he takes a page and a half to discuss the paper by Dr. Samuel Allentuck and myself entitled "The Psychiatric Aspects of Marihuana Intoxication," which appeared in the American Journal of Psychiatry for September 1942. This communication appears to suggest that we have made our results known to the public in some undesirable and improper manner and, by giving partial quotations of Dr. Lawrence Kolb's discussion of this paper, gives a quite incorrect impression. Our paper represented material from a study carried out by the Mayor's Committee on the Studies of Marihuana and sponsored by the New York Academy of Medicine. A volume will be issued shortly giving all this material in detail, so that I shall do nothing more
