OPI

What are Opiates?

Opiates are naturally derived from the active ingredients in the opium poppy plant. All opiates fall under the category of opioids since the accepted definition of opioids is now any drug that reacts on the opioid receptors of the brain. Like other opioids, opiates have a high potential for abuse and dependency. Users will build a tolerance to the drug and will need to take larger does in order to achieve the desired effects and to mitigate the common withdrawal symptoms associated with cessation.

Cut-Off Levels (ng/mL)

200, 300 ng/mL (Urine)

10 ng/mL (Saliva)

Window of Detection

1 – 3 Days (Urine)

1 – 2 Days (Saliva)

How is it Used?

Opiates come in a variety of forms and can be, taken orally, absorbed through the skin, inhaled, insufflated, and injected both intravenously and intramuscularly.

What are the Effects?

The effects of opiates are similar to that of other opioids. The effects vary in strength and duration depending on the size of dose frequency of use and other psychical factors of the user. When injected or taken intravenously onset effects take place almost immediately as opposed to digesting it or inhaling it. Opiates will produce a pain reliving euphoric effect which leads to severe psychological and psychical dependence and addiction. More serious health effects and death can be associated with prolong use of opioids if not taken properly under medical supervision.

Common Symptoms

  • Noticeable elation/euphoria.
  • Marked sedation/drowsiness.
  • Confusion.
  • Constricted pupils.
  • Slowed breathing.
  • Intermittent nodding off, or loss of consciousness.
  • Constipation
  • Death

Synthetic Marijuana: K2 Spice

Synthetic Marijuana

K2-50 / K3 / K2P

What is Synthetic Marijuana?

The synthetic version of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, K2/Spice or K3, is a mixture of plant material sprayed with synthetic psychoactive chemicals. Often looks like potpourri and typically labeled “not for human consumption.” Dangerous to purchase from Internet because its origins and chemical amounts are unknown. The ingredients and strength of products containing synthetic cannabinoids are almost impossible for the user to know.

Cut-Off Levels (ng/mL)

200, 300 ng/mL (Urine)

10 ng/mL (Saliva)

Window of Detection

1 – 3 Days (Urine)

1 – 2 Days (Saliva)

How is it Used?

Synthetic cannabis is used similarly to authentic natural cannabis. It is primarily smoked in rolled cigarettes, glass pipes, bowls, and bongs. Users may also try to ingest to experience effects.

What are the Effects?

Synthetic cannabinoids act on the same brain cell receptors as THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the mind-altering ingredient in marijuana.

So far, there have been few scientific studies of the effects of synthetic cannabinoids on the human brain, but researchers do know that some of them bind more strongly than marijuana to the cell receptors affected by THC and can produce much stronger effects. The resulting health effects can be unpredictable and dangerous.

Because the chemical composition of many synthetic cannabinoid products is unknown and may change from batch to batch, these products are likely to contain substances that cause dramatically different effects than the user might expect.

Synthetic cannabinoid users report some effects similar to those produced by marijuana:

  • elevated mood
  • relaxation
  • altered perception—awareness of surrounding objects and conditions
  • symptoms of psychosis—delusional or disordered thinking detached from reality

Psychotic effects include:

  • extreme anxiety
  • confusion
  • paranoia—extreme and unreasonable distrust of others
  • hallucinations—sensations and images that seem real though they are not

Common Symptoms

  • rapid heart rate
  • vomiting
  • violent behavior
  • suicidal thoughts
  • headaches
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • irritability
  • toxic reactions
  • elevated blood pressure
  • reduced blood supply to the heart
  • kidney damage
  • seizures

Common Street Names

  • Bliss
  • Black Mamba
  • Blaze
  • Bombay Blue
  • Fake Weed
  • Legal Weed
  • Genie
  • Red X
  • Dawn Scooby Skunk
  • Snax
  • K2-Spice
  • K3

What does it Look Like?

Synthetic marijuana is created to mimic the look, along with the side effects, of marijuana or THC. It most commonly resembles the look of dried ground herbs, though the smell of synthetic marijuana differs and will have a pungent, sometimes fish like, odor.

Legal Status

Because the chemicals used in them have no medical benefit and a high potential for abuse, authorities have made it illegal to sell, buy, or possess some of these chemicals. However, manufacturers try to sidestep these laws by changing the chemical formulas in their mixtures.

What is Rohyphnol?

Rohypnol® is a powerful benzodiazepine and acts as a central nervous system depressant. It has become widely known as the  “date rape” because it has been used to sedate potential victims. In a medical setting, it has been used to treat insomnia  and a precursor to anesthesia in some countries outside of the U.S. Rohypnol® is a trade name for flunitrazepam, a central nervous system (CNS) depressant that belongs to a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines. Flunitrazepam is also marketed as generic preparations and other trade name products outside of the United States. Like other benzodiazepines, Rohypnol® produces sedative-hypnotic, anti-anxiety, and muscle relaxant effects. This drug has never been approved for medical use in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration.

How is it Used?

 

Royphonol® is commonly taken orally in tablet form but has also been used to sedate potential rape or sexual assault victims by dissolving the tablet in liquid. It has been known to be insufflated nasally.

What are the Effects?

Benzodiazepines suppress the central nervous system causing sever drowsiness and sleepiness. Amnesia and spouts of memory lapse are common among users and these effects are increased with larger doses. High doses of Rohypnol®, particularly when combined with CNS depressant drugs such as alcohol and heroin, can cause severe sedation, unconsciousness, slow heart rate, and suppression of respiration that may be sufficient to result in death.

Oxycodone

Oxycodone

OXY

What is Oxycodone?

Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic narcotic analgesic used to treat moderate to severe pain.  It is a semi-synthetic opioid being  that it is synthesized from thebaine, a naturally occurring alkaloid found in the opium poppy. It has a high potential for abuse due to its’ euphoric pain relieving effects and high risk of addiction and dependency.  Oxycodone has become increasingly popular in recreational users in recent years and has contributed to what is now being called the “Opioid Crisis” of America. 

Cut-Off Levels (ng/mL)

200, 300 ng/mL (Urine)

50, 300 ng/mL (Saliva)

Window of Detection

2 Hrs. – 3 Days (Urine)

1 – 2 Days (Saliva)

How is it Used?

Oxycodone can only be obtained (legally) by having a prescription from a licensed medical practitioner.  It is manufactured and distributed in extended-released (ER) tablets ranging from 5mg – 80mg and 5mg – 30mg immediate-release tablets (IR).  Common name brands of oxycodone are OxyContin, Roxicodone, Roxicet, Endocet, Percocet, and Percodan. When taken properly in a medical setting or under medical supervision, oxycodone is approved for oral use only in the U.S. It is available in liquid form for intravenous and intramuscular injection in other countries such as the U.K. 

 

What are the Effects?

When taken properly an extended-release tablet will usually produce onset effects within 30 minutes to 1 hour and can last anywhere from 4 – 12 hours gradually “releasing” the dose over an “extended” period of time. The immediate-release tablets will have shorter acting effects last from 2 – 4 hours but “release” the entire dose all at once or “immediate(ly)”. Oxycodone has been said to produce euphoric pain relieving effects that have helped many improve quality of life, but has a high risk of dependency and can also be fatal at high doses. Users are often encouraged to be weened off oxycodone, due to the withdrawal symptoms that can follow abrupt stoppage.  

 

Common Symptoms

  • Miosis or pin pointed pupils
  • Shallow Breathing
  • Decreased Respiratory Function
  • Itching
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting 
  • Constipation
  • Dizziness
  • Coma 
  • Death

Common Street Names (Opium)

What does it Look Like?

Small round or oval tablets ranging in colors, such as, but not limited to, white, pink, blue, yellow, or green.  OxyContin is one of the most known and widely abused brands of oxycodone and will have the letters “OP” printed on one side and the dosage in milligrams printed on the other, i.e., a 40mg ER OxyContin tablet will appear yellow in color with the letters “OP” on one side and “40” on the other.  Another popular choice among oxycodone users are, Roxicodone 30mg IR tablets, which are typically blue in color. In recreational use, it is common for a user to crush the tablet into a powder to then either insufflate nasally or heat the powder to a liquid to then be injected intravenously.  The tablets can also be smoked, or “free-based”, off of aluminum foil and be used as an inhalant. 

Legal Status

Oxycodone is a Schedule II substance under the U.S. Controlled Substance Act.
