Drug and Narcotic Control
An opioid antagonist with properties similar to those of NALOXONE; in addition it also possesses some agonist properties. It should be used cautiously; levallorphan reverses severe opioid-induced respiratory depression but may exacerbate respiratory depression such as that induced by alcohol or other non-opioid central depressants. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p683)
The air-dried exudate from the unripe seed capsule of the opium poppy, Papaver somniferum, or its variant, P. album. It contains a number of alkaloids, but only a few - MORPHINE; CODEINE; and PAPAVERINE - have clinical significance. Opium has been used as an analgesic, antitussive, antidiarrheal, and antispasmodic.
An opioid analgesic chemically related to and with an action resembling that of MEPERIDINE, but more rapid in onset and of shorter duration. It has been used in obstetrics, as pre-operative medication, for minor surgical procedures, and for dental procedures. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1067)
An opioid analgesic with actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE, apart from an absence of cough suppressant activity. It is used in the treatment of moderate to severe pain, including pain in obstetrics. It may also be used as an adjunct to anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1092)
Inert Gas Narcosis
A phenothiazine with pharmacological activity similar to that of both CHLORPROMAZINE and PROMETHAZINE. It has the histamine-antagonist properties of the antihistamines together with CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM effects resembling those of chlorpromazine. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p604)
A glucocorticoid with the general properties of corticosteroids. It has been used by mouth in the treatment of all conditions in which corticosteroid therapy is indicated except adrenal-deficiency states for which its lack of sodium-retaining properties makes it less suitable than HYDROCORTISONE with supplementary FLUDROCORTISONE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p737)
Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome
Progressive diminution of the susceptibility of a human or animal to the effects of a drug, resulting from its continued administration. It should be differentiated from DRUG RESISTANCE wherein an organism, disease, or tissue fails to respond to the intended effectiveness of a chemical or drug. It should also be differentiated from MAXIMUM TOLERATED DOSE and NO-OBSERVED-ADVERSE-EFFECT LEVEL.
A short-acting opioid anesthetic and analgesic derivative of FENTANYL. It produces an early peak analgesic effect and fast recovery of consciousness. Alfentanil is effective as an anesthetic during surgery, for supplementation of analgesia during surgical procedures, and as an analgesic for critically ill patients.

Recall of Tripedia vaccine. (3/374)On January 27, 1999, the Food and Drug Administration initiated a voluntary recall of Tripedia diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine (DTaP), lot number 0916490, manufactured by Pasteur Merieux Connaught USA. Routine post-release stability testing completed in January 1999 indicated that the potency of the diphtheria toxoid component of this lot was below specification. The potency of the tetanus and pertussis components of this lot was acceptable. (+info)
Does over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapy improve smokers' life expectancy? (4/374)OBJECTIVE: To determine the public health benefits of making nicotine replacement therapy available without prescription, in terms of number of quitters and life expectancy. DESIGN: A decision-analytic model was developed to compare the policy of over-the-counter (OTC) availability of nicotine replacement therapy with that of prescription ([symbol: see text]) availability for the adult smoking population in the United States. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Long-term (six-month) quit rates, life expectancy, and smoking attributable mortality (SAM) rates. RESULTS: OTC availability of nicotine replacement therapy would result in 91,151 additional successful quitters over a six-month period, and a cumulative total of approximately 1.7 million additional quitters over 25 years. All-cause SAM would decrease by 348 deaths per year and 2940 deaths per year at six months and five years, respectively. Relative to [symbol: see text] nicotine replacement therapy availability, OTC availability would result in an average gain in life expectancy across the entire adult smoking population of 0.196 years per smoker. In sensitivity analyses, the benefits of OTC availability were evident across a wide range of changes in baseline parameters. CONCLUSIONS: Compared with [symbol: see text] availability of nicotine replacement therapy, OTC availability would result in more successful quitters, fewer smoking-attributable deaths, and increased life expectancy for current smokers.

Recent developments in maintenance prescribing and monitoring in the United Kingdom. (5/374)After a brief historical review of British drug legislation and public and governmental attitudes, this paper describes the wide range of policies and practices that have appeared since the explosion of illicit drug abuse in the 1960s. The spectrum goes from a reluctance to prescribe at all to maintenance on injectable opiates. Comparisons are made with differing attitudes to the availability of abortion in public health services. Compared with 5 years ago, about three times more methadone is being prescribed. There is a steady increase in prescriptions for injectable methadone but heroin maintenance is still rare. The "British System" permits great flexibility in the choice of opiates for maintenance. Some amphetamine-prescribing programmes also exist. Hair analysis for drugs to monitor levels of both prescribed and unprescribed drugs is a welcome and promising alternative to undignified and often misleading urine tests. (+info)
Harm reduction in Bern: from outreach to heroin maintenance. (6/374)In Switzerland, harm-reduction programs have the support of the national government and many localities, in congruence with much of the rest of Europe and in contrast with the United States, and take place in public settings. The threat of AIDS is recognized as the greater harm. This paper describes the overall national program and highlights the experience from one city; the program is noteworthy because it is aimed at gathering comparative data from controlled trials.

Regulatory decision strategy for entry of a novel biological therapeutic with a clinically unmonitorable toxicity into clinical trials: pre-IND meetings and a case example. (7/374)The following material was derived from a synthesis of case histories taken from investigational new drug (IND) applications and drug sponsors' experiences, utilizing fictionalized data to avoid any resemblance to any proprietary information; any such resemblance is accidental. These examples are used as an instructional scenario to illustrate appropriate handling of a difficult toxicology issue. In this scenario, a drug caused a toxicity in animals that was detected only by histopathologic analysis; if it were to develop in patients, no conventional clinical methods could be identified to monitor for it. It is not unusual for a firm to cancel clinical development plans for a lead drug candidate that causes such a toxicity, especially if such a drug is intended for use as a chronic therapeutic in a population of patients with a chronic disease. This case synthesis was inspired by a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) agreement to allow such a product to proceed into clinical trials after substantive pre-IND discussions and agreement on well-considered toxicology program designs. The scientists most closely involved in the strategy development included the sponsor's toxicologist, veterinary toxicologic pathologist, and pharmacokineticist, as well as the FDA's reviewing pharmacologist. The basis of this decision was thorough toxicity characterization (1-month studies in 2 species); correlating toxicities with a particular cumulative area under the curve (AUC) in both species; identification of the most sensitive species (the species that showed the lower AUC correlating with toxicity); allometric assessment of clearance of the drug in 3 nonhuman species; construction of a model of human kinetics (based on extrapolation from animal kinetics); and finally, estimation of clinical safety factors (ratios of the human estimated cumulative AUC at the proposed clinical doses, over the animal cumulative AUC that correlated with the no adverse effect levels). Industry and FDA scientists negotiated a joint assessment of risk and benefit in patients, resulting in the FDA permitting such a compound to enter into clinical trials for a serious autoimmune disease. Such constructive, early communication starts with the pre-IND meeting, and the conduct and planning for this meeting can be very important in establishing smooth scientific and regulatory groundwork for the future of a drug under IND investigation.

Safety assessment of biotechnology-derived pharmaceuticals: ICH and beyond. (8/374)Many scientific discussions, especially in the past 8 yr, have focused on definition of criteria for the optimal assessment of the preclinical toxicity of pharmaceuticals. With the current overlap of responsibility among centers within the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), uniformity of testing standards, when appropriate, would be desirable. These discussions have extended beyond the boundaries of the FDA and have culminated in the acceptance of formalized, internationally recognized guidances. The work of the International Committee on Harmonisation (ICH) and the initiatives developed by the FDA are important because they (a) represent a consensus scientific opinion, (b) promote consistency, (c) improve the quality of the studies performed, (d) assist the public sector in determining what may be generally acceptable to prepare product development plans, and (e) provide guidance for the sponsors in the design of preclinical toxicity studies. Disadvantages associated with such initiatives include (a) the establishment of a historical database that is difficult to relinquish, (b) the promotion of a check-the-box approach, i.e., a tendancy to perform only the minimum evaluation required by the guidelines, (c) the creation of a disincentive for industry to develop and validate new models, and (d) the creation of state-of-the-art guidances that may not allow for appropriate evaluation of novel therapies. The introduction of biotechnology-derived pharmaceuticals for clinical use has often required the application of unique approaches to assessing their safety in preclinical studies. There is much diversity among these products, which include the gene and cellular therapies, monoclonal antibodies, human-derived recombinant regulatory proteins, blood products, and vaccines. For many of the biological therapies, there will be unique product issues that may require specific modifications to protocol design and may raise additional safety concerns (e.g., immunogenicity). Guidances concerning the design of preclinical studies for such therapies are generally based on the clinical indication. Risk versus benefit decisions are made with an understanding of the nature of the patient population, the severity of disease, and the availability of alternative therapies. Key components of protocol design for preclinical studies addressing the risks of these agents include (a) a safe starting dose in humans, (b) identification of potential target organs, (c) identification of clinical parameters that should be monitored in humans, and (d) identification of at-risk populations. One of the distinct aspects of the safety evaluation of biotechnology-derived pharmaceuticals is the use of relevant and often nontraditional species and the use of animal models of disease in preclinical safety evaluation. Extensive contributions were made by the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research to the ICH document on the safety of biotherapeutics, which is intended to provide worldwide guidance for a framework approach to the design and review of preclinical programs. Rational, scientifically sound study design and early identification of the potential safety concerns that may be anticipated in the clinical trial can result in preclinical data that facilitate use of these novel therapies for use in humans without duplication of effort or the unnecessary use of animals.

Congress Adds 26 New Chemicals to Controlled Substances Act
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) today commended House and Senate negotiators for agreeing on legislation to control 26 synthetic drugs under the Controlled Substances Act. These drugs include those commonly found in products marketed as K2 and Spice.. The addition of these chemicals to Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act will be included as part of S. 3187, the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act. Schedule I substances are those with a high potential for abuse; have no medical use in treatment in the United States; and lack an accepted safety for use of the drug.. In addition to scheduling the 26 drugs, the new law would double the length of time a substance may be temporarily placed in schedule I (from 18 to 36 months). In addition to explicitly naming 26 substances, the legislation creates a new definition for cannabamimetic agents, creating criteria by which similar chemical compounds are controlled. ...

January 2013 - Page 3 of 7 - Political Blotter
A federal appeals court today ruled the federal Drug Enforcement Administration does not have to reconsider moving marijuana to a less-strict list of controlled substances - a significant defeat for those advocating for the drugs medical use.. Marijuana is currently listed on Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act - the most restrictive category for controlled substances, encompassing drugs defined as having a high potential for abuse, no currently accepted medical use, and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision. Other drugs on that list include heroin and LSD, while methamphetamine is on the less-restrictive Schedule II.. The Coalition for Rescheduling Marijuana filed a rescheduling petition in 2002; that petition was unanswered until 2011, when the Drug Enforcement Administration denied it after advocates sued for unreasonable delay. This hearing is on the appeal of that denial.. Advocates claim the ban on marijuana is rooted in politics, not science, and that the ...

Congress members urge Obama to remove marijuana from illegal drugs list
In a signed letter issued on Wednesday, 18 members of Congress have called on President Barack Obama to reclassify marijuana, a drug currently listed in the same category as heroin and LSD.. Authored by Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), the letter comes after President Obamas comments to the New Yorker in January, in which he stated his belief that marijuana is not any more dangerous than drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes.. Under the 1970 Controlled Substances Act, the Drug Enforcement Administration classifies marijuana as a Schedule I substance. This is the harshest classification available for illegal substances, placing cannabis in a stricter category than drugs like cocaine. Schedule I substances are believed to have no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.. You said that you dont believe marijuana is any more dangerous than alcohol: a fully legalized substance, and believe it to be less dangerous in terms of its impact on the individual consumer, the ...
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has announced the reclassification of hydrocodone combination products from Schedule III to Schedule II under federal law. Schedule II drugs are substances known to be dangerous, prone to abuse, or could lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.. Combination hydrocodone painkiller products were previously regulated as Schedule III products under the law. Schedule III is the DEA category for substances that have accepted medical use, moderate potential for abuse, and the potential for dependency, according to the DEA definition. As a Schedule II substance, hydrocodone combination products will be subject to more stringent prescribing controls, such as bans on refills, Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) reports.. Non-combination hydrocodone drugs are already Schedule II drugs. The new policy will affect some of the countrys most-prescribed painkillers, including Vicodin, RAPS reports.

Schedule III narcoticsOxy Watchdog
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recommended reclassifying hydrocodone-containing painkillers like Vicodin from Schedule III drugs to the more restrictive Schedule II, a move that would bring such medications in line with opioid painkillers such as oxycodone and morphine.. In January, an expert panel advising the FDA voted 19 to 10 in favor of the more stringent prescribing requirements. Proponents of the reclassification have noted hydrocodones abuse potential (such products are currently the most-abused prescription medicine behind oxycodone), while critics have argued that the move would hinder legitimate pain patients from obtaining treatment.. The reclassification must be approved by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Drug Enforcement Administration, which will make a final scheduling decision.. Separately in September, the FDA announced new safety labeling changes for extended-release and long-acting opioid analgesics such as OxyContin. The updated labels must ...
DC Appeals Court to Review Marijuanas Medical Benefits | Cannabis Culture
It started with a coalition of disgruntled Americans, then a handful of governors took up the cause last year, and now - for the first time in nearly 20 years - a federal court will hear oral arguments in a lawsuit challenging the classification of cannabis as a dangerous drug without medical benefits.. In the case, Americans for Safe Access v. Drug Enforcement Administration, the court will be presented with scientific evidence regarding the medicinal effects of marijuana, and is expected to rule on whether or not the Drug Enforcement Administration acted appropriately in denying a petition to reclassify cannabis, filed by a collection of public interest organizations back in 2002.. Medical marijuana patients are finally getting their day in court, Joe Elford, chief counsel with ASA, said in a recent statement. This is a rare opportunity for patients to confront politically motivated decision-making with scientific evidence of marijuanas medical efficacy. Under federal law, a schedule I ...
Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) | Health Law Advisor
FDA took two important steps last week to clarify the regulatory landscape for cannabis products, including CBD products. First, FDA issued a draft guidance on Quality Considerations for Clinical Research Involving Cannabis and Cannabis Derived Compounds. This guidance builds off of earlier guidance FDA has issued about the quality and regulatory considerations that govern the development and FDA approval of cannabis and/or cannabinoid drug products. See e.g., here and here. The draft guidance iterates a federal standard for calculating delta-9 THC content in cannabis finished products, which addresses a significant gap in federal policy regarding those products. While the testing standard is neither final nor binding on FDA or DEA, when finalized it would iterate what FDA considers to be a scientifically valid method for making the determination of whether a cannabis product is a Schedule I controlled substance. Therefore, it may be useful in many contexts, including federal and state cannabis ...

Rhode Island decriminalizes possession of small amounts of marijuana
Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, a Republican turned Independent, on Wednesday signed into law a bill to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana.. The Providence Journal reported that the law makes possessing an ounce or less of marijuana a civil violation with a $150 fine. However, three violations within 18 months would be a misdemeanor with larger fines and possibly prison. Half of the money collected by the fines will be put towards drug awareness and treatment programs for youths.. Last year, Chafee asked the federal Drug Enforcement Administration to reclassify marijuana as a Schedule II drug. Sixteen states, including Rhode Island, and the District of Columbia have legalized the use of medical marijuana. However, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration still classifies marijuana as a schedule I drug: the most restrictive classification reserved for dangerous drugs with no real medical value.. ...
Kratom Has Landed Itself on the Schedule I Controlled Substance List, Alongside Pot, Heroin and Cocaine
The Drug Enforcement Administration recently announced a temporary ban on two major chemicals in kratom - mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. Kratom is an herbal supplement which is claimed to help treat various health issues, ranging from depression to chronic pain to an addicts physical and psychological dependence on opioids. On September 30, these two kratom chemicals will be classified as Schedule I substances.. The DEA filed to place the plant and its two main components on Schedule I on Wednesday. It will now be listed alongside marijuana, ecstasy and LSD on Schedule I. The DEA ban on these two primary chemicals can be applied both to kratom, the plant, and any other synthetic alternatives to the plant.. Kratom originates in Southeast Asia and is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family. The species is indigenous to Thailand and has been used in traditional medicine, but it has no approved medical applications and few studies have been done into its health effects. It is ...
Drug Enforcement Administration | angiEmedia
Ive been a fan of the nutritional supplement DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol or dimethylethanolamine) for some time. Some women swear by it for reducing wrinkles and age spots, especially when applied in cream form. However, I believe this nutrient has a much wider and more important use than skin care. That use is boosting brain function in people experiencing problems with sleep, focus, and attention.. When I started taking DMAE years ago, I noticed about an hour reduction in the number of hours of sleep I needed each day to feel rested. I also noticed improved ability to concentrate. As with any supplement, your results may vary due to many factors including diet, weight, biochemistry, genetics, dosages, and perhaps random chance. That said, if youve got concerns about excessive sleepiness, trouble focusing, and problems maintaining attention, its my opinion that DMAE is worth a look as it is an inexpensive dietary supplement with a long track record.. ...
Laws Governing Drug Use | Student Life | Drexel University
The federal government prohibits the manufacture, distribution, dispensation and possession of controlled substances unless specifically permitted by statute. The government categorizes controlled substances according to Schedules I through V. Schedule I drugs have a high potential for abuse, with no accepted medical use. Schedule I drugs include, but are not limited to, heroin, marijuana, hashish, LSD and other hallucinogens. Schedule II drugs have a high potential for abuse, but some medical use, and include opium, morphine, codeine, barbiturates, cocaine and its derivatives, amphetamines, phencyclidine (PCP) and other narcotics. Schedule III, Schedule IV and Schedule V drugs have some potential for abuse, but less than Schedule I and II drugs, with Schedule III drugs having the most potential for abuse and Schedule V the least. Schedule III, IV and V drugs include chloral hydrate (IV), certain barbiturates (III and IV), benzodiazines (IV), glutethimide (III), other depressants and narcotics ...

Oripavine - wikidoc
Due to the relative ease of synthetic modification of oripavine to produce other narcotics (by either direct or indirect routes via thebaine), the World Health Organizations Expert Committee on Drug Dependence recommended in 2003 that oripavine be controlled under Schedule I of the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. On March 14 2007, the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs formally decided to accept these recommendations, and placed oripavine in the Schedule I. Until recently, oripavine was a Schedule II drug in the United States by default as a thebaine derivative, although it was not explicitly listed. However, as a member state under the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, the US was obligated to specifically control the substance under the Controlled Substances Act following its international control by the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs. On September 24 2007, the Drug Enforcement Administration formally added oripavine to Schedule II. ...

Iowa Liberal » 2008 » October » 20
But it is hard to imagine why she or husband John would want to excavate any unhappy memories of her Percocet period. Her battle with addiction included a series of major felony offenses in the early 90s, which included falsifying prescriptions, stealing drugs from a medical charity she founded and underwrote with her family fortune, and inducing doctors and other employees of that charity to help her obtain Percocet and other Schedule III narcotics illegally. The Drug Enforcement Administration opened an investigation of her after a former employee, whose name she had used to obtain drugs, reported her criminal misuse of her charity. At the time, seasoned defense attorneys in Arizona believed that she could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted on half a dozen counts (and that if her name had been JosÃ© Lopez, she surely would have).. But Cindy McCain avoided prosecution by federal authorities. Instead, like so many other wealthy and high-profile drug offenders - and unlike so many of ...

AHPA applauds passage of the Designer Anabolic Steroid Control Act (DASCA)
Congress passed the Designer Anabolic Steroid Control Act (DASCA) of 2014 (S. 2012) last night, clearing the bill to be signed into law by President Obama. Obama is expected to sign the bill that provides new authority to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to place designer anabolic steroids on the Controlled Substance Schedules more rapidly. The bill also gives DEA new enforcement tools to prosecute disreputable companies that develop and market anabolic steroids mislabeled as dietary supplements. AHPA has been advocating lawmakers to pass this legislation to help protect consumers from potentially dangerous anabolic steroids falsely marketed as dietary supplements. AHPA thanks Congress for passing this important bill, said Michael McGuffin, president of the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA). Just a handful of bad actors selling illegal products can tarnish the regulated supplement industry. When President Obama signs this legislation into law, it will help protect consumers ...

PSM Standard: listing of hydrogen chloride and hydrochloric acid, anhydrous. | Occupational Safety and Health Administration
Houston, Texas 77079-2990. Dear Mr. Grumbles:. This is in response to your letter of March 2, requesting a clarification on the listing of Hydrogen Chloride in Appendix A of the Process Safety Standard which was promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on February 24, 1992 (57FR 6356).. Specifically, you asked why Hydrogen Chloride and Hydrochloric Acid, anhydrous were both listed in Appendix A and both had the same CAS number (CAS #7647-01-0).. The Appendix A list is referring to Hydrogen Chloride gas and its liquid form. If hydrogen chloride gas is liquefied, it is sometimes referred to as Hydrogen Chloride, Anhydrous or Hydrochloric acid, anhydrous. However, it is still the same substance. Consequently, the Agency listed the substance both ways, but with the same CAS number, to indicate that they are both the same substance.. I hope this information will be of assistance to you and have clarified your question.. Sincerely,. Thomas H. ...

The Dose Makes The Poison: The Animal Ark Poisonings
Pentobarbital is a barbiturate derivative that was first synthesized in 1930 and is considered a Schedule II controlled substance by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). It has been used clinically in humans as a short-acting and potent sedative-hypnotic agent for insomnia, pre-anesthesia, and as an anticonvulsant. It has other uses in treating Reyes syndrome and traumatic brain injury as well in veterinary anesthesia. Pentobarbital is also one of the drugs that has been used in human and animal euthanasia. In November 2013, a Missouri death row inmate died from a dose of the drug during the lethal injection/capital punishment process. Its pharmacological mechanism of action is via GABA receptor potentiation, AMPA and kainate receptor inhibition. The drug also increases the duration or time that chloride ion channels are open. The molecular formula is C11H18N2O3 and molecular weight is 226.2 g/mol. Different forms of the drug exist on the market such as capsules, tablets, ...
DEA - Publications - Methamphetamine Situation - Administrators Message
In June 1994, the law enforcement community was starkly reminded of the violence that surrounds methamphetamine trafficking and the changing nature of the methamphetamine trade that is spreading across the United States. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Richard Fass, acting in an undercover capacity, was attempting to make a purchase of methamphetamine in a Glendale, Arizona, strip-mall when he was ambushed, shot, and killed by four methamphetamine traffickers whose sole intent was to rob him. This incident ended in violence and tragedy, as do so many of the cases involving methamphetamine. Law enforcement officers are not the only ones to suffer from the violence and danger associated with methamphetamine innocent victims all too often are brought into the fray. Over the past year, two separate methamphetamine-related tragedies have captured the publics attention. First, during the summer in New Mexico, a father, while high on methamphetamine, beheaded his 14-year-old son. ...

Silk Road Methamphetamine Distributors Indicted in Federal Case Involving Four Defendants | USAO-OR | Department of Justice
PORTLAND, Ore. - U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon Amanda Marshall announced today that a federal indictment has been returned charging four individuals involved in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine over the Internet, conspiracy to export methamphetamine to other countries, and fifteen counts of international and domestic money laundering.. The Oregon indictment is an outgrowth of an investigation which began when, in September 2011, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents in Baltimore received information regarding an online illegal drug marketplace known as Silk Road. Subsequently, the Baltimore Silk Road Task Force, led by HSI, and including U.S. Secret Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), was created. The ensuing investigation revealed the Silk Road website had been in operation since approximately March 2011 and had more than 957,079 registered users who ...

In an astonishingly short timeframe, the AVMA, with assistance from the CVMA, was able to change federal DEA law that had stood for nearly 40 years. The Veterinary Medicine Mobility Act has changed the law to now allow veterinarians to carry controlled substances in the field.. In the spring of 2012, the CVMA received dozens of phone calls and emails from northern California veterinarians requesting assistance in representing them to the DEA. Large animal ambulatory and small animal mobile practitioners were being contacted by the Sacramento Region Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) field office and informed that it was unlawful for them to carry controlled substances in their vehicles. The CVMA immediately contacted the DEA field office to voice concern about the calls and requested that veterinary practitioners be exempted from this regulation on the grounds that the nature of veterinary practice requires that controlled substances be used in the field. While the local DEA office ...
Acute Public Health Consequences of Methamphetamine Laboratories --- 16 States, January 2000--June 2004
This report illustrates the dangers associated with illicit meth laboratories. Substances used in these laboratories are corrosive, explosive, flammable, and toxic and can cause fires, explosions, and other uncontrolled reactions (4,5). An estimated 20%--30% of known meth laboratories are discovered because of fires and explosions (6). These laboratories are located in various environments, including private residences, motel rooms, rental storage facilities, campgrounds, and motor vehicles (4,7). Historical data from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) demonstrate a substantial increase in the numbers of meth laboratories seized by law enforcement officials, from 263 in 1994 to 1,815 in 2000, representing a 590% increase (8). Relative ease of production, short production time, and profit potential are possible reasons contributing to the likely increase in the numbers of laboratories discovered. Similar to DEA data, the overall numbers of meth events in the HSEES system appear to be ...

Thanks to the combined work of our federal, state, and local partners, we have been able to address a substantial threat to the ...
Health and Safety | Nicaragua | ViaNica.com
Due to their location, the Corn Islands are used as stop-over by drug traffickers who travel over water from Columbia and head to Mexico and the United States. The Nicaraguan coastguard as well as the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) operates at the islands and along the coast. On occasion, chased drug traffickers dump their cargo into sea, which later might end up at the Corn Islands. Furthermore, there have been problems concerning armed robberies on both Big and Little Corn Island. Recently (September 2005), the police have permanently installed three policemen on Little Corn Island, in cooperation with the ministry of tourism (INTUR) and hotel owners. This is a promising measure as the lack of law enforcement made many of the robberies possible. The U.S. Embassy has pledged to donate $200,000 to build a police station on Big Corn Island. These recent measures give hope that the problems at the Corn Islands are finally taken seriously and hopefully results will soon be seen. At this ...

Forensic Pathology Forum
But money alone wont fix the problem-we also need legislative and policy changes. Instead of criminalizing the drug based solely on its chemical composition, legality should be defined by toxicity, the accreditation of manufacturing labs, and distribution method. Our federal agencies need to target online distributors. Medical examiners and coroners need to document medications found at overdose death scenes, check those lists against state databases, and report cases of prescription drug diversion. We also need to alert prescribing physicians in these cases so they can re-evaluate their prescription guidelines. Coroners must certify overdose deaths properly-listing all the medications by name instead of just writing mixed drug intoxication on the death certificate, for instance. Medical examiners should work with the Drug Enforcement Administration to apply comprehensive testing techniques to pills collected from death scenes, looking for emerging contaminants and designer drugs. This is ...

Colorado State University is pushing ahead.. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has warned companies that sell marijuana products online and via pet shops and animal hospitals that theyre violating laws by offering unapproved new animal drugs. The FDA threatened legal action.. But, seeing potential benefits of CBDs, the American Veterinary Medical Associations policy-making body said last summer it wants the DEA to declassify marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug to facilitate research opportunities for veterinary and human medical uses. It asked the board of the national veterinarians organization to investigate working with other stakeholders toward that goal. The board is ...
Deputies Discover Over $2,000 of Marijuana during Seat Belt Checkpoint
Deputies were conducting a seat belt checkpoint along the northbound lane of LA Highway 316 near Meadowland Drive when they noticed a van wherein a small child was not properly restrained. Deputies stopped the vehicle and immediately detected a strong odor of suspected marijuana inside the vehicle. Upon questioning the occupants of the vehicle, the passenger, Tonia Parfait, admitted to having just smoked a marijuana cigar and handed it to the deputies. The rear passenger, Vahn Butler, appeared to be extremely nervous. He denied having anything illegal, but upon exiting the vehicle, he placed a large amount of money on the rear seat, which was later determined to be $886. Upon searching the vehicle, deputies discovered an insulated lunch box containing several glass jars, and each jar contained small individual bags of high-grade marijuana. They also discovered 8 Xanax pills, a container of liquid Promethazine with Codeine, a loaded handgun, and various drug paraphernalia. Butler admitted to ...

Minnesota man sentanced to more than five years for distributing methamphetamine in the Eau Claire area
MADISON, WIS. - Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Pheng Yang, 29, St. Paul, Minnesota, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 5½ years in federal prison for distributing methamphetamine in the Eau Claire, Wisconsin area between January 2018 and February 2019. On July 12, 2019, Yang pleaded guilty to possessing 500 or more grams of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. Yang was arrested on February 4, 2019, during his attempted delivery of over 900 grams of methamphetamine to an informant in Eau Claire. At the sentencing, Judge Conley noted that notwithstanding the defendants lack of criminal history and addiction issues, he made a calculated decision to distribute more than 3 kilograms of methamphetamine into the Eau Claire area, which warranted a significant sentence. The charge against the defendant was the result of an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the West Central

Senator Wants To Ban Bath Salt Drugs In The US - Redorbit
Senator Charles Schumer unveiled a bill on Sunday that would ban two drugs that produce a meth-like high and are being sold under the name bath salts.. These so-called bath salts contain ingredients that are nothing more than legally sanctioned narcotics, and they are being sold cheaply to all comers, with no questions asked, at store counters around the country, Schumer, a New York Democrat, said in a statement.. He said he will introduce a bill to outlaw the two synthetic drugs being marketed under names such as Ivory Snow, Red Dove and Vanilla Sky, which are ephedrine and methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV). The drugs come in powder and tablet form and are ingested by snorting, injection, smoking and by use of an atomizer. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), users experience an intense high, euphoria, extreme energy, hallucinations, insomnia and are easily provoked to anger. They have emerged as legal alternatives to cocaine and methamphetamines, and one or both have ...
Rising methamphetamine production point to gaps in the precursor control system in Mexico. - Cocaine Route Programme
The number of methamphetamine laboratories dismantled by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has fallen from 12,049 in 2013 to 9,306 in 2014. Yet, because the levels of meth consumption are believed to have remained stable the agency believes that production has shifted across the border to Mexico. One of the reasons for this, according to the agency, is the availability of chemicals used phenylacetone, an organic compound banned in the US but accessible in Mexico. Consequently, Mexican cartels have been producing a purer form of meth and increased their market share in the US.. The trend underlines the need for closer international cooperation in precursor control as tight restrictions in one country can have a displacement effect. The work of PRELAC has contributed to building an infrastructure for the sharing of information between control agencies across Latin America and the Caribbean. More work is required to ensure that gaps in control systems do not open opportunities for ...

Did You Know That Your Government is Arming Agencies Like the IRS, DHS, VHA, OIG, SSA, NPS? - DC Clothesline
These purchases in the past have been the subject of some controversy, such as the mass purchases of hollow-point rounds by government agencies including the Forest Service, National Park Service, Office of Inspector General, Bureau of Fiscal Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals, and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Hollow-point bullets are illegal under the Geneva Convention but government agencies spent at least $426,268 in just two years (FY 2015 and FY 2016) to acquire them.. Ammunition purchases by the Department of Homeland Security in 2013 were also controversial and were subsequently investigated by the GAO. DHS had claimed that is was buying over a billion rounds of ammunition, including hollow-point rounds, in order to save money. However, this has long been in doubt, given that hollow-point rounds are significantly more expensive than other rounds that do not expand upon impact.. At the time, Forbes noted that the massive ammo purchases by DHS ...
