WASHINGTON (Reuter) - Legal
sedatives, tranquilisers and stimu-
lants are replacing heroin as
America's number one narcotics
menace, Senate investigators re-
ported yesterday.
A report released by the Senate
Subcommittee on Reorganization
Research and Internfational Organi-
zations said federal agencies were
so preoccupied with suppressing
heroin that they have failed to
combat the widespread diversion of
legally manufactured drugs to il-
licit traffic.
THE REPORT, released follow-
ing a nine-month investigation,
said: "Present drug enforcement
priorities and strategies are over-
whelmingly weighted toward the
suppression of heroin as the na-
tion's number one drug menace.
However, the report said, "All
signs pointed to the emergence of
polydrug abuse involving cocaine,
amphetamines, barbiturates, hal-
lucinogens,jmethadone, methaqua-
lone, marijuana and alcohol used
in a variety of combinations-some-
times in conjunction with heroin."
The report said a recent survey

by the National Commission on
Marijuana and Drug Abuse showed
that 1.3 per cent of the adult
population and 0.6 per cent of the
youth had some experience with
heroin.
IN ADDITION, 3.2 per cent of
adults and 1.5 per cent of young
people had some experience with
cocaine, the report said.
"Thesetnumbers were far out-
distanced, however, by the number
of Americans reported by the Com-
mission to be involved in recrea-
tional, non-medical use of seda-
tives, tranquilisers and stimulants:
22 per cent of adults and 16 per
cent of youth," the subcommittee
report said.
Yet, the subcommittee report
said, the Bureau of Narcotics and
Dangerous Drugs has assigned only
300 of its 1,600 agents to investigate
the diversion of legally manufac-
tured pills into the illicit market
and the number of seizures and
arrests involving illicit pill traffic
dropped in 1972 from previous
years.
IT CHARGED tiat the bureau
relied heavily on voluntary com-
pliance by the drug manufacturers.
