Heroin /ˈhɛroʊɪn/ (diacetylmorphine or morphine diacetate, also known as diamorphine (BAN, INN[4]) and commonly known by its street names of H, smack, boy, horse, brown, black, tar, and others[5] is an opioid analgesic originally synthesized by C.R. Alder Wright in 1874 by adding two acetyl groups to the molecule morphine, which is found naturally in the opium poppy. It is the 3,6-diacetyl ester of morphine. Administered intravenously by injection, heroin is two to four times more potent than morphine and is faster in its onset of action.[6] Illicit heroin is sometimes available in freebase form, dulling the sheen and consistency to a matte-white powder.[7] Because of its lower boiling point, the freebase form of heroin is also smokable. As with other opioids, diacetylmorphine is used as both a legal, medically prescribed drug (e.g., as an analgesic, cough suppressant and as an anti-diarrhea drug) and a recreational drug, in which case the user is seeking euphoria.

Vt. woman arrested on heroin charges | The Recorder BERNARDSTON — Police took more than 80 bags of heroin off the streets after an Interstate 91 traffic stop. Mariah Gagne, 24, of Springfield, Vt., was arrested on charges of possession of heroin with intent to distribute, and possession of a Class B substance, as well as a license plate violation, after she was pulled over Friday afternoon. “When I pulled her over, I noticed her pupils were constricted, and she wore a tank top, making multiple track marks very visible on both of her arms,” said trooper Michael McNally. He said the woman had hidden the heroin in a body cavity in an attempt to avoid detection. McNally said Gagne first stated she was coming from Holyoke, then changed her mind and said she was on the way back from Pittsfield. He believes she was taking the heroin back to her home state. He said heroin is often purchased in the Springfield and Holyoke areas and taken back to Vermont to be sold for a profit.

Heroin Use, Addiction, Effects, Withdrawal, and More Both dangerous and deadly, heroin is becoming more and more widely used. Here's what you need to know. What Is Heroin? Heroin comes from a flower, the opium poppy, which grows in Mexico, Asia, and South America. The drug is highly addictive and has been illegal in the United States since 1924. How Heroin Is Used No matter how you get it into your system, heroin gets to the brain quickly. You can smoke or snort it, but most users inject it into their veins to get the quickest high. How Does It Make You Feel? Right after taking heroin, you get a rush of good feelings and happiness. In an Illinois study of suburban heroin users, some described the feeling as “covered in a warm blanket, where worries are gone.” The drug can cause nausea and vomiting. Many people use heroin to treat their anxiety, worries, and other stressors. Continued Why Are More People Using Heroin Today? Use of heroin nearly doubled between 2007 and 2012. Sometimes it's laced with other drugs. What Are the Effects of Heroin?

Hydrocodone Opioid drug used in pain relief Hydrocodone, also known as dihydrocodeinone, is a semisynthetic opioid used to treat pain and as a cough suppressant.[10] It is taken by mouth.[10] Typically it is dispensed as the combination acetaminophen/hydrocodone or ibuprofen/hydrocodone for pain severe enough to require an opioid[11][12][13] and in combination with homatropine methylbromide to relieve cough.[10] It is also available by itself in a long-acting form under the brand name Zohydro ER, among others, to treat severe pain of a prolonged duration.[10][14] Hydrocodone is a controlled drug, in the United States a Schedule II Controlled Substance. Side effects and mechanisms[edit] History and culture[edit] Medical uses[edit] Hydrocodone is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Available forms[edit] Hydrocodone is available in a variety of formulations for oral administration:[30][31][32] Hydrocodone is not available in parenteral or any other non-oral forms.[5][2] Side effects[edit] Absorption[edit]

Vermont mom busted as 5-year-old sits on alleged heroin stash WESTMINSTER,VT— A 33-year-old mother is being held in a southern Vermont jail after police accuse her of carrying a large quantity of heroin that her 5 year old sat on as the two traveled up Interstate 91on Saturday. Vermont State Trooper Ryan Wood reported that Eugenia Emerson of Springfield, Vt., was stopped in the northbound lane of I-91 in Westminster at approximately 6:30 p.m. Saturday for a lane violation and reported defective equipment. During the stop, a state police K-9 unit conducted an exterior scan of the car, and the dog allegedly detected the presence of illegal drugs. Emerson reportedly agreed to a search of the car, and police said they found 690 bags of heroin under the seat cushion where her child was sitting. Emerson was arrested and charged with trafficking heroin. That state's Gov.

Hash oil Oleoresin obtained by the extraction of cannabis or hashish Composition[edit] The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content of hash oil varies tremendously, since the manufacturers use a varying assortment of marijuana plants and preparation techniques. Dealers sometimes cut hash oils with other oils.[2][3] Following an outbreak of vaping related pulmonary illnesses and deaths in 2019 NBC News conducted tests on different THC vape cartridges and found cartridges containing up to 30% Vitamin E acetate and trace amounts of fungicides and pesticides that may be harmful.[4] Hash oil seized in the 1970s had a THC content ranging from 10% to 30%. The oil available on the U.S. The following compounds were found in naphtha extracts of Bedrocan Dutch medical cannabis:[10] The form of the extract varies depending on the extraction process used; it may be liquid, a clear amber solid (called “shatter"), a sticky semisolid substance (called "wax"), or a brittle honeycombed solid (called "honeycomb wax").[11]

Canada: Giant 40ft Deep Sinkhole Swallows Road in Downtown Ottawa A 40ft sinkhole has opened up on Waller Street in OttawaTwitter/John Holtby A giant 40ft deep sinkhole has opened up on Waller street in downtown Ottawa. The section of the street collapsed and closed the intersection between Laurier Avenue East and Waller Street. The cause of the sinkhole is still a mystery, but has suspended tunnelling work on the East Portal of the city's Light Rail Transit project. Crews from the Rideau Transit Group (RTG) were working on the site at the time the hole appeared, but nobody was injured. Round-the-clock tunnelling work had just begun on the LRT East Portal site when the incidentb occurred. City officials have confirmed crews were filling the sinkhole with concrete in order to stabilise it. The hole left residents along Laurier Avenue without water, as well as causing traffic chaos in and around the area with the closure of many roads. Several sinkholes have also appeared in the UK after floods, causing injuries and homes to be evacuated.

Hydrocodone/paracetamol Combination pain relief drug Hydrocodone/paracetamol (also known as hydrocodone/acetaminophen) is the combination of the pain medications hydrocodone and paracetamol (acetaminophen).[1] It is used to treat moderate to severe pain.[1][3] It is taken by mouth.[1] Recreational use is common in the United States.[4][5] Common side effects include dizziness, sleepiness, constipation, and vomiting.[1][3] Serious side effects include addiction, decreased rate of breathing, low blood pressure, serotonin syndrome, severe allergic reactions, and liver failure.[1] Use during pregnancy may harm the fetus.[1] Use with alcohol is not recommended.[3] Hydrocodone works by binding to the mu-opioid receptor.[1] How paracetamol works is unclear but may involve blocking the creation of prostaglandins.[1][6] Uses[edit] Medical[edit] Hydrocodone/paracetamol is a fixed-dose combination consisting of the opioid hydrocodone and the non-opioid analgesic paracetamol.

HAARP The most prominent instrument at the HAARP Station is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high-power radio frequency transmitter facility operating in the high frequency (HF) band. The IRI is used to temporarily excite a limited area of the Ionosphere. Other instruments, such as a VHF and a UHF radar, a fluxgate magnetometer, a digisonde (an ionospheric sounding device), and an induction magnetometer, are used to study the physical processes that occur in the excited region. Work on the HAARP Station began in 1993. HAARP is a target of conspiracy theorists, who claim that it is capable of modifying weather, disabling satellites and exerting mind control over people, and that it is being used as a weapon against terrorists. Overview[edit] HAARP antenna array The HAARP project directs a 3.6 MW signal, in the 2.8–10 MHz region of the HF (high-frequency) band, into the ionosphere. The HAARP program began in 1990. Research[edit] Some of the main scientific findings from HAARP include

Hydromorphone Opioid drug used for pain relief Hydromorphone, also known as dihydromorphinone, and sold under the brand name Dilaudid among others, is an opioid used to treat moderate to severe pain.[4] Typically, long-term use is only recommended for pain due to cancer.[6] It may be used by mouth or by injection into a vein, muscle, or under the skin.[4] Effects generally begin within half an hour and last for up to five hours.[4] Common side effects include dizziness, sleepiness, nausea, itchiness, and constipation.[4] Serious side effects may include abuse, low blood pressure, seizures, respiratory depression, and serotonin syndrome.[4] Rapidly decreasing the dose may result in opioid withdrawal.[4] Generally, use during pregnancy or breastfeeding is not recommended.[7] Hydromorphone is believed to work by activating opioid receptors, mainly in the brain and spinal cord.[4] Hydromorphone 2 mg IV is equivalent to approximately 10 mg morphine IV.[6] Medical use[edit] Side effects[edit] Withdrawal[edit]

Gabapentinoid Calcium channel blockers Gabapentinoids, also known as α2δ ligands, are a class of drugs that are derivatives of the inhibitory neurotransmitter gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) (i.e., GABA analogues) which block α2δ subunit-containing voltage-dependent calcium channels (VDCCs).[1][2][3][4] This site has been referred to as the gabapentin receptor (α2δ subunit), as it is the target of the drugs gabapentin and pregabalin.[5] Clinically used gabapentinoids include gabapentin, pregabalin, and mirogabalin,[3][4] as well as a gabapentin prodrug, gabapentin enacarbil.[6] Additionally, phenibut has been found to act as a gabapentinoid in addition to its action of functioning as a GABAB receptor agonist.[7][8] Further analogues like imagabalin are in clinical trials but have not yet been approved.[9] Other gabapentinoids which are used in scientific research but have not been approved for medical use include atagabalin, 4-methylpregabalin and PD-217,014.[citation needed] Medical uses[edit] [edit]

Chemtrail A high-flying jet leaving a condensation trail (contrail) According to the chemtrail conspiracy theory, some trails left in the sky by high-flying aircraft are chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed for sinister purposes undisclosed to the general public.[1] Believers in the theory argue that airplanes don't leave long-lasting contrails under normal conditions,[2] but their arguments have been dismissed by the scientific community: such trails are simply normal water-based contrails (condensation trails) which are routinely left by high-flying aircraft under certain atmospheric conditions.[3] Although proponents have attempted to prove that the claimed chemical spraying does take place, their analyses have been flawed or based on misconception.[4][5] Overview Multiple persistent contrails Contrails as chemtrails Contrails from propeller-driven aircraft engine exhaust, early 1940s Exhaust gases and emissions False evidence of chemtrails Ballast barrels in a prototype Boeing 747.

Gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid Chemical compound Gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (or γ-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), also known as 4-hydroxybutanoic acid) is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter and a psychoactive drug. It is a precursor to GABA, glutamate, and glycine in certain brain areas. It acts on the GHB receptor and is a weak agonist at the GABAB receptor. It is commonly used in the form of a salt, such as sodium γ-hydroxybutyrate (NaGHB, sodium oxybate, or Xyrem) or potassium γ-hydroxybutyrate (KGHB, potassium oxybate). Succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase deficiency is a disease that causes GHB to accumulate in the blood. Medical use[edit] GHB is used for medical purposes in the treatment of narcolepsy[9] and, more rarely, alcoholism,[10][11] although there remains uncertainty about its efficacy relative to other pharmacotherapies for alcohol dependence.[12] It is sometimes used off-label for the treatment of fibromyalgia.[13][14] GHB is the active ingredient of the prescription medication sodium oxybate (Xyrem).
