THOSE WHO OPPOSE SCIENTOLOGY
The first, based on a psychiatrists tip that the Church was using illegal drugs, led to a raid on the Washington, DC, church by a US deputy marshal who seized a few bottles of said drug. When it turned out to be a compound of the commonly available vitamin B1, vitamin C, niacinamide and calcium, that case obviously went nowhere.
Drug dealing proving an unworkable premise, the FDA and other interested agencies decided that Scientology practicing medicine without a license would prove fertile ground for exploration. On March 19, 1959, FDA agent Taylor Quinn infiltrated the church, taped a religious service, and passed the information on to the US Attorneys Office.
Unfortunately, as he reported to the FDA, the church had required him to sign a contract that he was not to learn to cure anyone. Nor was there any evidence of fraud.
