A mail order wholesale drug corporation made sales of morphine sulphate to a physician in unusually large quantities, frequently, and over an extended period.
Held, that the evidence, from which it could be inferred that the seller not only knew the physician was selling the drug illegally but intended to cooperate with him therein, was sufficient to sustain the seller's conviction of conspiracy to violate the Harrison Narcotic Act.
