Synthesized in 1904 by the German chemist A.Einhorn (1857-1917). In 1904, when Heinrich Braun (1903) German specialist renowned in local anesthesia devised a procaine-adrenaline mixture marketed by Hoechst under the Novocaïne® brand that was to dominate the market for 50 years. The Brand Name of Procaine is - NOVOCAIN® - comes from the Latin word "Novus," meaning "new," plus "cocaine widely used until the 1960s. Procaine has greater effectiveness in getting the effects of cocaine as a local anesthetic and did not provoke the addictive potential or the other negative side effects.
“MARIJUANA IS THE MOST VIOLENT-CAUSING DRUG IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES.” Marijuana is a product of the hemp plant, which appears as a green, brown, or gray mixture of dried, shredded leaves, stems, seeds, and flowers. Marijuana called by several street names such as pot, herb, weed, grass, boom, Mary Jane, gangster, chronic, among others by different people. Marijuana is the third most popular recreational drug in America being behind alcohol and tobacco, and has been used by nearly 100 million Americans. According to government surveys, some 25 million Americans have smoked marijuana in the past year, and more than 14 million do so regularly despite harsh laws against its use (Anthony 2002).
“58 Killed, 546 injured in Las Vegas Shooting by lone gunman”1 screamed the headlines of the New York Times on Oct 1, 2017. The lone gunman was Stephen Paddock who in a matter of ten minutes fired more than 1,100 rounds of ammunition killing and injuring over 600 people1. The fact that Paddock single-handedly wrecked such havoc was totally enabled by the fact that he was shooting using semi-automatic guns. This is just one recent example of the horrific results of a semiautomatic assault weapon when used wrongly. Had Paddock been using a hand pistol, a hunting rifle or a shotgun which needs to be reloaded after every shot or a round of five shots - he would have managed to kill or injure just a handful of people in that same ten minutes.2
Dr. Vicent Dole and Dr. Marie Nyswander conducted this experiment at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. At that time, New York City was the home of half the country’s heroin addicts. (Awards & Honors) Through research and experimentation and collection of data, it was found that methadone could not only be used as a painkiller but also as a means of treating heroin addicts through the withdrawal stages of detoxification.
He was actually rolling in it To stay away from detection, the cocaine was made in "super labs" somewhere down in the Colombian wilderness. To give you a thought of the amount they were pumping out in a day, it weighed roughly the same as two African elephants. That is 15 tons!
Setting aside, it questions whether the medical industry is safe, respectful, and showing equal rights not only to their patients but their employees as well. Everyone is human, and no one deserves to be terrorized for who he or she is and what they're trying to accomplish for themselves and others. Whether it be the patient's or the other employees, the medical industry should have their employees back because they are there to help save lives. If something is rightfully wrong why sit back, take action and have full attention to the problem, so it does not happen again. This takes part with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 when people in society take action to make sure everyone was treated equally no matter their background because, in the end, everyone is the same on the inside.
This way if they were to experience any side effects the company would not be held liable. The reason they are so aggressive and in such a hurry to test this new drug is because they want to be the first ones to come out with a drug in that class. They want to be able to make all the money they can make initially and therefore they need to have the drug out on the market. Even though the drug is producing plenty of adverse effects and has taken plenty of lives, the company believes that once they figure out the perfect dosage the drug will start helping people
If PepsiCo did not have an objective intent to giving out a jet, then it should not have part of the TV advertisement. As Christians, we should be very watchful with the kind of people we interact with. The bible admonishes us to “let no one deceive you with empty words,
In 1998, scientist Andrew Wakefield published an article stating that his experiment has proven that vaccines cause autism. Eventually, it was uncovered that lawyers paid Wakefield hundreds of thousands of dollars to forge the results of his experiment, reinforcing the fact that there is no proof that vaccines cause autism. Furthermore, anaphylaxis occurs in only “one per several hundred to one per million vaccinations” ("Should Any Vaccines Be Required for Children?"). On the other hand, “Studies have shown that influenza vaccine is 70 percent to 90 percent effective in healthy adults younger than 65” (Bren). Due to vaccines, millions of children are
Assault weapons are one of the main reasons massacres occur so spontaneously. In an article written by CHOP- Children Hospital of Philadelphia, “In a November 2017 review of mass shootings in the U.S., 95 mass shootings have occurred since 1982, from which approximately 76 semi-automatic handguns and 85 assault weapons and weapons with high magazine capacity were recovered[...] At Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. in 2012, Adam Lanza reportedly fired more than 150 shots in less than five minutes from his assault-style rifle with a high capacity magazine[... ]States that restrict assault weapons also have the lowest per capita homicide rates. However, because guns are easily trafficked in interstate and international commerce, federal rules are needed,” (CHOP 4).It is evident that states that ban high capacity automatic weapons to diminish the excessive amount of deaths that appear because of them.
A couple of friends from university who purchased and sold fentanyl, a deadly drug, on the dark web are now in jail. Aaron Gledhill, 30 and Ross Brennan, 28 raked in hundreds of pounds in profits making and selling the deadly painkiller as well as other illicit drugs. In the past 9 months in the UK, at least 70 individuals have died as a result of ingesting fentanyl, usually when combined with heroin. Gledhill and Brennan are Huddersfield
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the number of deaths by overdoes of opioid drugs (around 18,000) is over triple the amount of overdoses of cocaine (around 5,000). The article “OxyContin Is Not for Kids” states that in Vermont, children as young as the age of 11 are now able to be prescribed with opioid pain killers such as oxycontin. The article goes on to explain the possible risks that are involved with giving children this age the medication.
According to John R. Lott Jr., PhD. “When states passed concealed carry laws during the 19 years we studied (from 1977 to 1995) the number of multiple- victim public shootings declined by 84%. Deaths from these shootings plummeted on average by 90% and injuries by 82%. In fact FBI crime data by economist and political commentator John R. Lott Jr, calculated that 1,570 murders, 4,177 rapes, 60,000 aggravated assaults, and 12,000 robberies could have been prevented between 1977 and 1992 if concealed carry could have been legal in every US state during that time period,”(ProCon.org). This proves that, by passing concealed carry laws, the percentage of crime has decreased ,and states have become safer due to restrictions but still allowing people to protect
The Truth behind the Stereotypes In 2010, a five hundred million dollar lawsuit was filed by the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation near Whiteclay, Nebraska against several major beer companies and four local stores. Whiteclay is a small town of 14 people that is home to 4 stores which have sold nearly 5 million bottles of beer averaging 13,000 bottles per day. On the Reservation itself, one in four children suffer birth defects due to alcohol, and eighty percent of the population is unemployed. One in ten deaths is reported to be from alcohol directly and two thirds of those deaths were from people under fifty. Even more astounding is that over half of the residents live below the poverty line or $1.25 a day.
“According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in 2004, an estimated 12 million persons aged 12 and older (4.9% of US persons aged 12 or older) had used methamphetamine at least once in their lifetime and 600,000(.2% of the US population) had used it during the past month” (2007, CDC.gov, para 8). Methamphetamine, which is also called meth, chalk, glass, and ice, is an extremely addictive stimulant drug that is chemically similar to amphetamine. “It takes the form of a white, odorless, bitter-tasting crystalline powder” (2014,Drugabuse.gov/methamphetamine, para 1). I found that meth is produced by ephedrine or pseudoephedrine (commonly known as Sudafed) with products such as battery acid, iodine crystals, battery acid, red phosphorous and ammonia. It can be produced into, powder, liquid, glass or clear rock (2007,CDC.gov, para
