Central Narcotics Intelligence Bureau, Egyptian Government, Annual Report for the Year 1937

JAMA. 1938;111(18):1688-1689. doi:10.1001/jama.1938.02790440082030.

The first four chapters of this report deal with the results of the application of new narcotic laws in the apprehension and punishment of traffickers in opiates and hashish in Egypt. Many case reports are given showing the quantity of these drugs confiscated, the names and the nationalities of the offenders apprehended, and the sentences inflicted. Methods used by both traffickers in drugs and the agents who set about to apprehend them are given in some detail and do not differ materially from the methods used in other parts of the world. New legislation in Egypt provides severe punishment for the violation of the narcotic laws not only for natives but also for foreigners. This is something new in Egypt and has been a boon to the narcotic agents. There is also new legislation directed at drastic reduction in the cultivation of both hashish and opium poppies within Egypt.
