On this day: July 10, 1924

Do you know that in the five years from 1910 to 1915 there was an average of 36 grains of opium consumed for every person in the United States, men, women and children? If you and your neighbor used none, then some other poor dope fiend used twice as much. In India the proportion was 27 grains; in France 4; in England 3; in Germany 2; and in Italy 1.
