    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 787; Pub. L. 104-294, title VI,
    Sec. 601(a)(8), Oct. 11, 1996, 110 Stat. 3498.)

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

      Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 103 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.
    321, Sec. 49, 35 Stat. 1098).
      Reference to persons causing or procuring was omitted as
    unnecessary in view of definition of "principal" in section 2 of
    this title.
      Words "motor vehicle or aircraft" were inserted in third
    paragraph to remove any doubt as to scope of section in view of
    rapidly advancing methods of transportation.
      Minor changes were made in phraseology.
                                AMENDMENTS
      1996 - Pub. L. 104-294 substituted "fined under this title" for
    "fined not more than $1,000" in fourth par.
