Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy Backs California A.G. on Drug-Smuggling Prevention

Mar. 6, 1963 - Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy (pictured with John F. Kennedy Jr.) assured California Attorney General Stanley Mosk today he will support federal legislation to prohibit smuggling of dangerous drugs. In a 40-minute meeting with Kennedy in Washington, Mosk reported California’s grave concern over the uncontrolled importation, particularly from Mexico, of “goofballs,” pep pills, and sleeping pills. Kennedy said he will back legislation introduced by Sen. Thomas Dodd (D-Conn.) to prohibit smuggling of these drugs and importation of them for later illegal purposes. The President’s brother also told Mosk he regards California’s narcotics rehabilitation program as the best in the nation.
