    CHAPTER 8: Chemical Defence Against Fentanyls

    From the book: Chemical Warfare Toxicology : Volume 2: Management of Poisoning

    DESPITE ONGOING EFFORTS TO PROHIBIT THE PRODUCTION, STORAGE AND USE OF CHEMICAL WARFARE AGENTS, RECENT WORLD EVENTS HIGHLIGHT THE ENDURING THREAT TO THE POPULATION FROM THESE AGENTS. Providing an up-to-date treatise on the ongoing research into the toxicology of chemical warfare agents, this book will appeal to toxicologists, biochemists and weapons specialists working in industry and academia, and anyone with an interest in chemical warfare toxicology or exposure.

    Fentanyls are solid analgesic–anaesthetics used in human and veterinary medicine. The science relevant to their use in defence and security is presented in this chapter. This includes a timeline of the pharmaceutical development of fentanyls and their medicinal uses.

    THEIR RISE TO PROMINENCE AS INCAPACITATING AGENTS OCCURRED WHEN THE RUSSIAN SPECIAL FORCES USED A MIXTURE OF TWO FENTANYLS, CARFENTANIL AND REMIFENTANIL, TO FACILITATE RESOLUTION OF THE MOSCOW THEATRE SIEGE IN 2002.

  • Putting Down the Distracted Drivers Law?

    FACT: WA STATE DISTRACTED DRIVERS, HOLDING ELECTRONIC DEVICES, KILL AND INJURE PEOPLE, THE PUNISHMENT AND PENALTIES, BY LAW, SHOULD  BE THE SAME AS DUI LAWS.

    DUI or DWI Punishments and Penalties | Nolo.com

    www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/dui-or-dwi-punishments-penalties-30321.html

    Jail Time. In all states, first-offense DUI or DWI is classified as a misdemeanor, and punishable by up to six months in jail. That jail time may be increased under certain circumstances. … MANY STATES ALSO REQUIRE MINIMUM JAIL SENTENCES OF AT LEAST SEVERAL DAYS ON A FIRST OFFENSE.

    MANY STATES also require minimum jail sentences of at least several days on a first offense. Subsequent offenses often result in jail sentences of several months to a year.

    For a DUI or DWI that’s been classified as a felony — either because the driver killed or injured someone or because it’s the driver’s third or fourth DUI — jail sentences of several years are not uncommon. Again, this depends on state law, the facts of the case, and the discretion of the judge at trial.

    FINES IN ADDITION TO JAIL SENTENCES, courts can and do impose high fines for DUI or DWI. These range from $500 to as much as $2,000.

    DRIVER’S LICENSE PROBLEMS A DUI or DWI offender stands a good chance of having his or her license suspended for a substantial period of time (either by court order or mandate of the state motor vehicles department). FOR EXAMPLE, MANY STATES suspend a first offender’s license for 90 days; a second offender’s license for one year; and a third offender’s license for three years.

    IN MANY STATES IF YOU COMMIT THE SAME CRIME , KILLING AND INJURING PEOPLE, YOU DO THE SAME  TIME

    The Michael Bloomberg Nanny State In New York: A Cautionary Tale

    www.forbes.com/…/the-michael-bloomberg-nanny-state-in-new-york-a-cautionary-tal…

    May 10, 2013 – Since New York City Mayor Bloomberg announced the 20-ounce soda ban last fall, the controversy has garnered national attention. But, this is just the latest example of his attempt to expand the “nanny state” that has become New York City.

    ———————————————————————–

    Meet Bloomberg | Nanny State

    https://www.meetbloomberg.com/nanny-state/

    Bloomberg’s 12 years as mayor of New York City have been referred to as a “stereotypically laughable example of a liberal nanny state at its worst.

    ———————————————————–

    What Has Bloomberg Tried To Regulate Or Ban In New York City?

    A BETTER QUESTION MIGHT BE WHAT HASN’T HE TRIED TO REGULATE OR BAN.

    HERE’S THE LIST OF SOME OF THE ITEMS ON HIS NANNY AGENDA: ALCOHOL, CALORIE COUNTS, carbon, CELL PHONES, CIGARETTES, contraceptives, composting, fingerprinting, gasoline, NOISE, POLITICS, PRIVACY, SECOND AMENDMENT, SODA, SODIUM, Styrofoam, taxis, tanning, traffic congestion and trans fats.

     BLOOMBERG’S 12 YEARS AS MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY HAVE BEEN REFERRED TO AS A

    “STEREOTYPICALLY LAUGHABLE EXAMPLE OF A LIBERAL NANNY STATE AT ITS WORST. HE “UNLEASHED A TSUNAMI OF PUBLIC HEALTH INITIATIVES” IN AN ATTEMPT TO REGULATE OR BAN DOZENS OF ITEMS AND BEHAVIORS FROM BIG GULPS TO CIGARETTES, from composting to trans fats.

    HE DID THIS BECAUSE HE THINKS THERE ARE TIMES WHEN GOVERNMENT  “SHOULD INFRINGE ON YOUR FREEDOM.” 

    BLOOMBERG DOESN’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, OR WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU.

    HE HAS ACTUALLY SAID,“YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT.

    BECAUSE WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT CHANGES WITH WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD,

     AND YOU NEED SOMEBODY TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS FOR YOU.”

    And Bloomberg has spent his billions trying to be that somebody.

    Bloomberg’s ban on cell phones in schools simply showed how out-of-touch he was with today’s realities.

    Is American freedom suffering  from being micromanaged  by  Nanny States,  government? THAT MAKE TOO MANY LAWS, about how people should live their lives, especially about, gun control, eating, smoking, or drinking, coffee, water, sugary water, energy drinks,  overprotective or interfering unduly with personal choices, life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    Like, driving to work holding your morning cup of Starbucks? Or eating a McDonalds  egg McMuffin in your car?

    Jul 27, 2017 Absolutely no one likes to be micromanaged. It’s frustrating, demoralizing, and demotivating. Yet, some states can’t seem to help …

    Down Right insulting,  WA State’s Micromanaging Nanny’s,   PASSING A LAW, THAT CONNOTES ANYONE DRIVING IN WA STATE (including tourists) CAN’T CHEW GUM AND DRIVE AT THE SAME TIME……..

    Connotes by definition: imply or suggest (an idea or feeling) in addition to the literal or primary meaning.

    Micromanagement is Mismanagement.

    Micro-managers are bad news for business and bad news for employees.

    They dis-empower staff, stifle opportunity and innovation, and give rise to poor performance.

    MICROMANAGEMENT IS JUST PLAIN BAD MANAGEMENT.

    JUN 6, 2017 Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under 50.

    AKRON, OhioDRUG OVERDOSE DEATHS IN 2016 MOST LIKELY EXCEEDED 59,000, the largest annual jump ever recorded in the United States, according to preliminary data compiled by The New York Times.

    The death count is the latest consequence of an escalating public health crisis: opioid addiction, now made more deadly by an influx of illicitly manufactured fentanyl and similar drugs.

    In 2016, Summit County, Ohio had 312 drug deaths, according to Gary Guenther, the county medical examiner’s chief investigator —

     A 46 PERCENT INCREASE FROM 2015 AND MORE THAN TRIPLE THE 99 CASES THAT WENT THROUGH THE MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE JUST TWO YEARS BEFORE.

    There were so many last year, Mr. Guenther said, that on three separate occasions the county had to request refrigerated trailers to store the bodies because they’d run out of space in the morgue.

    WA STATE RATE OF CRIME LAB CASES WITH ANY OPIATE RESULT

    OPIOID CASES BY COUNTY

    Data notes: Crime LAB DATA FROM THE WASHINGTON STATE PATROL FORENSIC LABORATORY SERVICES BUREAU: An “opiate case” refers to a unique FLSB case number with at least one result positive for any opiate. Only crime lab submissions from an agency clearly operating within a single county were associated with a county. Those originating from multi-county agencies, such as cross-jurisdiction drug task forces, some Washington State Patrol detachments, or federal law enforcement, are included in the state-wide rate.

    OPIOID USE, MORBIDITY, AND MORTALITY HAVE INCREASED NATIONALLY AND ACROSS WASHINGTON STATE. To provide insights into how and where changes are occurring, several data sources are mapped. Crime lab, treatment, and mortality data are presented for 2002–2004 and 2011–2013, to show patterns over time. These maps combine heroin and prescription-type opioids as those abusing these drugs often use them interchangeably, and interventions, treatment and the opioid overdose antidote naloxone, work equally well for both types of opioids.

    Crime lab data for police evidence testing indicate an 85% increase statewide, with increases in most counties. Publicly funded drug treatment admissions for opioids as the primary drug increased 197% statewide, with increases in 38 of 39 counties. Drug caused deaths involving opioids increased 31% statewide, with increases in most counties.
