This is a narcotics case in which appellant complains that the court erred in permitting the prosecution to elicit on redirect examination certain information damaging to him, and which he denied. The jury decided the issue of credibility against him. While the evidence on the whole was rather weak, we think it was sufficient to sustain the verdict.
