Dr. Sidney Cohen of the University of California, Los Angeles, is a former director of the Division of Narcotic Addiction and Drug Abuse of the National Institute of Mental Health.
Dr. Cohen said the "downers"--the street name for barbiturates--have in some respects a greater potential for danger than other classes of drugs, including heroin.
