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. But despite this fact its popularity diminished afterward because Procaine has been dethroned by compounds less toxic local anesthetic agents and longer duration of action
“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). Marijuana has a chemical, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol
“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 So what is a semi-automatic assault weapon and what makes it so deadly?
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. Methadone is a synthesized narcotic that belongs to the opioid family. This drug is opiate agonists, meaning methadone activates the opioid receptors in a person 's’ brain by attaching to the receptors in the brain that produce the “high” of other opioids.
His primary hit man John Jairo Velasquez assessed that he murdered more than 3,000 individuals in that decade alone. 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! What amount of does that make you in a year?
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.
The pharmaceutical company marketed the drug as free treatment and to get people to voluntarily take them. 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
(The Legal Environment of Business: A Managerial Approach: Theory to Practice, p 131) 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. Many mass shootings occur with the hand of weapons that should not be allowed, which again stresses the fact that gun control laws are
