There are several places where you can find information about the Narcotic Act, officialy known as the Harrison Narcotic Act of 1914.

Books: To find books about this act, go to COMCat and select the Subject tab.  Enter "drugs united states" or "narcotics united states" and then select subject headings to find books available for each subject.  I was able to find three books that specifically discuss this act:

The American disease : origins of narcotic control

The Return of the Dangerous Classes

Drugs in America

All of these books are located in the same area in the library, and if you search nearby books you may find more that discuss the act.

Articles: To find articles about this act, go to our Databases libguide (linked below) and select the Hot Topics & News tab.  From there, select individual databases and search each for information.  A good way to limit your search results is to search for "harrison narcotic act" instead of merely "narcotic act".  There are some relevant articles in EBSCO: Academic Search Complete.  After your initial search you can limit search results by publication date, full-text availability, narrower subject headings, etc.

Internet: Based on a search for "harrison narcotic act" in google, it appears that there is a considerable amount of information on the web about the act.  However, it is up to you to determine if the information you find is authoritative and trustworthy.  Use our Find Internet libguide to help find ways to effectively use the internet for college research purposes.
