    Abstract

    The growing use of drugs in this country has caused the work of the toxicological chemist to become increasingly difficult. More and more, the courts, police departments, and coroners have had to rely on the chemist for evidence in respect to identification of drugs. In many cases testing procedures commonly used today do not, in fact, establish the identity of a substance of interest with a desirable degree of certainty and the presumptive identification needs confirmation by other techniques.
