To the Editor:
—Relative to the narcotic law, will you kindly tell me on what grounds shall we prescribe morphin, etc., to chronic, habitual users? Those whom you are absolutely sure will be crazy and do bodily harm to themselves probably and those around them, if without it; those who have used it for years in large quantities. Will thank you for an answer to this inquiry.
