Changing its name after World War II to the Society for the Study of Addiction, it will last into the twenty-first century.

By 1903, the national Academy of Medicine had declared absinthe to be the most dangerous of all substances. Medical observation had linked absinthe consumption to a wide range of pathological conditions, including hallucinations, convulsions, and a violent type of insanity.

This strategy could be portrayed as an attempt to deal with the problem without adopting the draconian measure of prohibition, while at the same time ensuring that the state benefited fiscally from the measure.
