Mechanical ingenuity of narcotic smugglers is constantly being tested in devising new methods of bringing their contraband goods safely into the country. The picture shows a Bible which has been hollowed out in the center to provide a hiding place for thousands of dollars worth of morphine and other opiates. The book was confiscated by Internal Revenue inspectors.

    Thats for an individual junkie, not a “smuggler” of mass amounts. You can tell by the pills (they would be crushed and mixed with water), syringe and cooker.

    I know, I was an addict for over 20 years.

    And with that seizure the War on Drugs was over.

    A hollowed out book. Will wonders never cease.

    Thousands of dollars?

    My mother was given morphine for some years before she died. That’s about $10 Canadian worth of legal morphine.

    Of course, maybe it would have been worth thousands on the street in the US in 1928.

    Yeah, but which messes you up more, the drugs or the bible?
