Definition Of A Poison





Though the law does not define in definite terms what a poison really
is, it lays stress on the malicious intention in giving a drug or
other substance to an individual. It is a felony to administer, or
cause to be administered, any poison or other destructive thing with
intent to murder, or with the intention of stupefying or overpowering an
individual so that any indictable offence may be committed. It is a
misdemeanour to administer any poison, or destructive or noxious
thing, merely to aggrieve, injure, or annoy an individual. For a working
definition we may state that a poison is a substance which, when
introduced into or applied to the body, is capable of injuring health or
destroying life. A poison may therefore be swallowed, applied to the
skin, injected into the tissues, or introduced into any orifice of the
body.
