lethal drugs

The LD50 (the dose in which that substance has a 50% mortality rate) for LSD is amazingly high in contrast to the amounts needed for it to cause any felt effects in the human body. There’s very few cases of death from LSD whereas alcohol is one of the most lethal drugs on the planet. This is definitely not a call to prohibit alcohol again. We saw how that worked the first time. But we also see how drug prohibition is working right now which is not at all.

The Lost Special: The One Way to Tie Up Every Loose Thread

In the last month this corner of the Sherlock fandom has thrown out a multitude of ideas for a narrative that could potentially resolve every last inconsistency in Sherlock series 4. Not knowing it, this community has debated different readings – all perfectly valid with only minor holes in logic – but have missed how they might all fit together into an intricate puzzle, each reading validating the other.

I have found one way to connect every loose thread.

Topics resolved include:

– EMP Theory vs “TFP as John’s TAB”: why both readings are meant to be exposed to the viewer (but we just found them too early)
– Benedict’s insanely long monologue they mentioned him having in Series 4.
– How another episode would only be comprised of a few new scenes
– Mary’s character development drifting far from her original plotline
– Moffat’s Doctor Who narrative that includes Toby Jones as a Dream Lord and what that means for Amy in “Amy’s Choice” and Sherlock in The Lost Special.
– How POVs intertwine in TFP, and how TPLOSH inspired the way The Lost Special would end.
– The entire bizarre nature of Series 4
– Breaking the 4th Wall
– The focus in The Six Thatchers on “The Duplicate Man”, “Twins”, “Two places at once”, and “Dead AND alive”.
– Three Garridebs
– Benedict claiming “Love conquers all” while Steven Moffat facepalms.

So if you want to know the one way this could all work, check out the rest of this post. But hear me out until the end, suspend your disbelief until you’ve finished, because regardless of whether or not you believe we’re getting The Lost Special, this reading which combines everything we’ve talked about for the last year is definitely arguable and until something else gets proposed, it is the one I’m sticking with til the bitter end.

Keep reading

if you know nothing about addiction, have never educated yourself on addiction, have never been exposed to someone w an addiction, have never been addicted, pipe the fuck down about addiction.

because at that point you are spewing useless information about dRugZ r bAd u R juNkie and nobody fucking cares. that’s a sad mindset and i feel so genuinely sorry for you.

a lil education on lil peep

gus was sold xanax cut w fentanyl, he didn’t kill himself or accidentally overdose “because he’s a junkie”. he was sold laced shit and he was killed. people saying “he took 6 xans he asked for it”, no. don’t be stupid. not only is that already an invalid statement, but gus was an addict, contrary to belief he was an intelligent man, he knew his limit and how much he could take. xanax alone would not of killed him. the way people overdose on xanax is if they eat an absurd amount or they mix it w another drug. you have to really be trying to kill yourself when it comes to xanax and ONLY xanax.

whether people like it or not, whether you listened to lil peep or not, he was changing and has changed his line of music entirely. he created such a beautiful movement when it came to trans rights, lgbt+ rights, women’s rights, speaking against racism, homophobia, etc. and he didn’t get enough credit for it. he had a beautiful mind and was only looked at as a drug addict when he was and did so much more. he had big things planned, he was gonna make it big in music and he was so fucking excited for it. his life was taken too fucking soon on some retarded shit. please don’t do hard/lethal drugs and if you do please be smart about it and know what it is.

another thing

do not claim you support mental health awareness or care about people w mental illnesses if you shut out and criticize addiction because mental illness and addiction go hand in hand.

I just wanted to make a post about Terre Haute...

and what it could be like.

Terre Haute is a HIGH security prison, it has a max security federal correctional institute, a medium security federal correctional institute, and a low security prison camp. The maximum security facility houses federal death row inmates. ( A special confinement unit is where most death row inmates are held. It has been accused of having inadequate conditions, and also that those on Death Row are routinely denied basic medical care, mental health services, and are subjected to noise that causes sleep deprivation.


The super-max cell is similar to this one shown above. They are by themselves, their meals are pushed through a slot, there is NO recreation but they’re allowed out of their tiny cells 3 times a week into cages.

The Death Chamber inside of Terre Haute Penitentiary. 

Executions are performed here but may be moved to a state where it is legal if it is more convenient to the family and victims. 

Between 3-12 hours before death a last meal is given to the inmate cooked by prison staff (alcohol is not an option). The inmate wears khaki pants, a white t-shirt, white socks, and slip on shoes to the gurney.

Up to 8 victims(or members of the victims family) can watch the execution, also the inmate can choose a spiritual advisor, 3 family members, and 2 attorneys. They are all located outside the execution room and can watch through glass. Ten members of the media are also allowed.

Last words are an option given to the condemned, a signal is then given by a U.S. marshal, and an executioner starts administering the lethal drugs. Time of Death is recorded, and almost always occurs early in the morning. 


short and simple but just wanted to give some info on it. 

Friendly reminder that :
  • As a child, Shinjiro Aragaki was described to be a “cheerful boy” until Akihiko’s sister is killed in a fire. He undergoes a drastic change overnight to become the pillar of support his best friend desperately needed. 
  • Shinjiro’s life was completely ruined because of a freak accident that was completely out of his control. He was 15
  • He already knew the pain of losing a loved one (Miki) but was also an orphan who had killed a parent- something he must’ve yearned for.  
  • Consumed by guilt, the teenager ostracizes himself from his friends to the point where he’s homeless and living in the streets of bad neighborhoods. 
  • He takes lethal drugs because preventing himself from harming any more people is a priority that outweighs anything else - even if that means slowly killing yourself.
  • At 17, Shinjiro returns to SEES and finds people and a place he can call a “home” again. 
  • Despite this he is still saddled with immense grief. He doesn’t know how else to atone for his sins other than allowing Ken to have his revenge, which is why he goes to meet Ken that night and willingly accepts his death.
  • Even if you save him in Fem MC’s route - he wakes up months later from a coma and immediately loses yet another person dear to him. 
  • Unless Kirjio Group manages to create something better, he would probably still have to keep taking Persona Suppressors. But even so, by then the Suppressors must have wrecked havoc on his body after continuous usage. It’s very likely his life has already been cut far shorter than any of his peers.  

Happy October 4th to my most favorite boy with his train wreck of a life y’all.

[Bruce & Jason Panels] Detective Comics #790

So, just a disclaimer, Jason Todd isn’t actually in the issue, but it does revolve around him. He hasn’t come back as Red Hood just yet. 

Let’s just say that it’s reminiscent of the period immediately after his death when Bruce Wayne was noticeably more broody and brutal in his anti-crime spree than usual. Back then, the Bat Family was only composed of Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, Alfred Pennyworth, and a persistent young Tim Drake “auditioning” for a membership. This time around, their family has grown somewhat, and includes Cassandra Cain as Batgirl and Stephanie Brown as Spoiler. 

Backstory (spoilers ahead): A new drug called G.H.D. is circulating the Gotham streets, killing some citizens, including a young female. Batman tracks down the supplier and throws him through a window several stories off the ground. Batgirl swoops in to catch the man, and Batman gets more information out of him through what his does best - instilling fear. 


“How you hurt him. You were punishing him.”

After the bust, Cass calls Bruce out on his… unusual behavior.

That look on Bruce’s face in the third panel below… You just know that he can’t argue with her observation. 

“It’s always personal.”

That cool detachment Bruce has? That wall he built around himself? All of it is meant to keep his mission from being compromised. His mission to protect his family, his friends, innocent lives. That’s the form of affection he’s developed over years of trauma and obsessive discipline to equip himself for this mission.

So, if he tries to shut down Steph’s aspiration to be a vigilante? It’s personal. If he tries to keep a brash young lady from jumping headfirst into the field without a parachute - the same way a fifteen-year-old boy once did? It’s personal. And, if you think he’s an unreasonable grumpy old man for doing it, he won’t fault you for begrudging him. (He’ll care, sure, but he won’t show it.) 

“It’s strange. How he stops seeing them… the scars.”

This issue is actually entitled “Scarification”, and it seems that the next set of panels explains why.  It’s probably this day, out of all the days in the year, that reminds him why his scars matter. Why everything seems to matter more.

“If this is about what today is, then… just know that I’m here if you need… to talk.”

I love how much the Batkids understand Bruce. Even if they know that it’s, more often than not, futile to appeal to him on an emotional level, they’ll keep trying anyway, knowing that he secretly needs them.  

“Happy birthday, kid.”

Bruce harasses one more criminal before the set of panels below.  He finally tracks down the supplier and makes him choose between taking his own lethal drug or jail time. (Guess which one he picks?)

It’s these last two scenes that gives the story its story. Bruce always has difficulty with expressing emotion, so it shouldn’t surprise us that sometimes it comes out as aggression. 

On the day that reminds him of the son he lost to the thing they do, with another teenager wanting to be part of it all… must be extra hard, huh?

“For some of us there is no going back.”


This was a simple, but sweet tribute to Jason. A reminder that Bruce loved loves him and knew him well. That in his memory, Bruce is trying to keep from making the same mistakes.

(And, it was bittersweet how Cass “met” Jason for the first time like that… It gets better in the New 52′s Batman and Robin Eternal, though!)

Charles Cullen- Possibly America’s worse serial killer. Operating as an ‘Angel of Death’, detectives have theorised that Cullen may have a staggering 400+ victims under his belt. For sixteen years, Cullen worked as a nurse at various medical centres and hospitals where he injected lethal doses of drugs into patients’ intravenous drips. He has confirmed 29-40 of the victims he killed, however he claims that he “has forgotten” about the other hundreds.

12 things I learned while being 18

1. no matter how old you get, crying in your mom’s arms will always make you feel 3 years old

2. if you don’t want to piss people off, be a vegetable. dance like an idiot at parties, laugh like a walrus at serious meetings, sing pop songs at the top of your lungs in front of your indie friends, wear red socks when the dress code is black and white. the point isn’t rebellion, the point is expression. the point is the world would be a much better place if we were taught to be fascinated by our differences instead of fearing them, if we were taught to explore individuality instead of controlling it. if we were taught that even if we disagree with somebody’s way of expression, we have no authority to ever tell somebody they can’t be who they are. free yourself, or let us be free

3. kisses are the best form of communication. it is your chance to say everything words can’t express. when you feel weak and fragile and you’ve given them so much of your heart they could break it at any second, say it.. kiss slowly, kiss softly, fingers running through their spine, face between hands. when you feel like you’re on fire, like no matter how close you are to each other you’ll never be close enough, say it. hands running through hair, whispers in between, desperate kisses, laughter in their mouth. i’m all for words, but, trust me, kisses are better than poetry

4. pain is a monster fed by fear- the more afraid you are of it finding you, the more it’ll grow. the more you run away, the stronger it’s legs get. it’ll appear when you drink a glass of wine by yourself and you find yourself crying for no reason. or when you realize you haven’t laughed in a week. pain hates being ignored. so make friends with pain. shake it’s hand. write about it, cry your eyes out in the shower, and let it slowly leave your body until you are clean again.

5. believe in everything, just in case. my favorite word of all time is “serendipity”. it means a “fortunate accident” and it is the most important word in the world, because it taught me the only way to experience magic is to believe in it. when you bump into a stranger and it feels like you’ve known them forever, when you apply for the school of your dreams and it doesn’t work out, your phone turning off before you have to send an important text- . the universe is in constant communication with us, playing a charming little game of charades. we guess and we guess and we make a fool of ourselves guessing, but we will find our answer, and the whole room will cheer when we do

6. when you cant find love, make it. if you’re having the worst day of your life, smile at people walking on a sidewalk. text your best friend and tell her you are so happy the boy she’s liked since 7th grade is in her math class. it’ll make you feel better. love is love, given or taken, created or received

7. there are two kinds of people in the world: the ones that are relieved by this next sentence, and the ones that are worried: karma is real. some people will gossip and spread poison, they will forget about lifting themselves up and become obsessed with tearing you down, they will whisper quiet so you know its not meant for you, but loud enough so you feel like the smallest person in the room, and after you’ve beat yourself up wondering what you did wrong you will try and gain their acceptance. and they will still hate you. darling, it never had anything to do with you. hatred is only a reflection of people’s own misery, they have so much of it they want to find other places to put it in. but whatever you do, don’t lose hope in people and don’t stop being kind to people. let life do it’s thing. be kind, work hard, cheer people on, and life will be good to you.

8. spend as much time as you can with your family. learn about where your grandparents come from, ask them how they fell in love, tell your dad to tell you about that time he got detention in high school. they’re getting older too

9. all your troubles will disappear with chanel #5 perfume on your neck. well, they wont. but your troubles will smell delicious. the only thing worth spending a lot of money on is a perfume that makes you feel like the queen of the earth. your scent is your signature

10. love is the most lethal drug of all. sometimes you will have to walk away from people you’re addicted to. you will need to stop making excuses for people that hurt you. and you will take your heart from the shelf they put it on and say “thank you for your time, but this felt damn freezing up there.” and you will reach up even if you don’t feel tall enough, and you will take it from the shelf, and you will put it back in your scratched up chest, and you will button up your shirt, and it’ll hurt like hell, but you will walk away. it will be the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do. you will think you’ve walked away from something you can’t replace, that you’ll never feel that high again. trust me, you will

11. be kind to people, keep people’s secrets, be the one that answers the phone when nobody else does, make everyone feel importan. no matter what happens, be as kind as you can

12. feel everything, that is the difference between living and existing

Dispensing abortifacients & contraceptives during pharmacy school...I Need to Vent, I Really Need Advice and Prayers Please

I’m faced with a moral dilemma about my career choice. I wanted to become a pharmacist and I was SO excited about it. It was one of my dreams for the longest time, I even planned my whole academic life around my desire to become a pharmacist.
I made a promise to myself and prayed to God that I would be a Pro-Life pharmacist no matter what, even if I have to run my own pro-life pharmacy business, or avoid retail pharmacy altogether and go into another pharmacy specialty to avoid dispensing abortifacients, lethal doses of drugs known for euthanasia, and contraceptives.

However, what’s stopping me now is the rotations/internships during pharmacy school, because I would be required to work in a retail pharmacy setting under their own policies. There are no Christian/Catholic pharmacy schools in my areas (and even if there was, we all know how a lot of so-called Christian/Catholic schools don’t really practice Church teachings and morals…).
I tried contacting my available pharmacy schools to ask if they will allow me to avoid dispensing abortifacients and contraceptives during rotations/internships and so far, only one school replied back saying, “I cannot guarantee a rotation schedule that would reflect this student’s preferences”.

I was praying and thinking that if all the pharmacy schools I contact reply back telling me I can’t avoid dispensing abortifacients and contraceptives during their rotations/internships, then I will know that it’s not God’s will for me and I won’t become a pharmacist…

Although I trust God and His will for me, I’m still devastated. I really wanted to study pharmacy. I really wanted to learn and become a professional to use this knowledge to help people and possibly make a difference by being pro-life. All I wanted was to go to pharmacy school and become a pharmacist without having to dispense abortifacients, lethal drugs, and contraceptives. How is this not possible? Pharmacy and healthcare are SO MUCH MORE than abortifacients, euthanasia, and contraceptives.

I wonder how many intelligent, skilled, compassionate people have been turned away or discouraged from pursuing a healthcare career because of situations like this…
If anyone tries to make an argument and tell you that most doctors and healthcare professionals support abortion, euthanasia, contraceptives, etc., that’s not accurate - a lot of that probably has more to do with the fact that a lot of schools and laws make it nearly impossible for pro-life students and healthcare professionals to object.

To top it off, almost everyone I know in my life was so thrilled, happy, and proud of me that I wanted to become a pharmacist. I come from a family/culture where becoming a doctor (or any other similar career) is highly preferred and admired, some of them and their children are in those careers, so if I’m unable to pursue my career anymore, I’m going to be disappointing my family and a few certain people will probably gossip about me.
I’m already known in my family for being “too much” Catholic, so now I might be ridiculed for my decision.

My mom is very intelligent and working towards her career as well, but out of love, she sacrificed her dream so that I could pursue mine first. She’s the one who’s supporting me and helping me by paying for my college (God bless her) and she was also really excited, proud of me, and helping me plan to become a pharmacist, so when I told her my concerns, she either didn’t take what I said seriously or she was disappointed in what I said, and she noticed how I haven’t been showing much interest in my academic life for a while lately, so she commented, “You just don’t want to become a pharmacist, that’s what it is.” which kinda stung, cause since she’s Catholic like me, I thought she would’ve been more supportive…

But even though she’s also Catholic and doesn’t support abortifacients, euthanasia, and contraceptives either, she thinks it’s not a sin by dispensing them since “it’s not you who’s taking them” and “even if you don’t dispense it, the patient will still find another way to get it anyway”, but I know for a fact that it’s still partaking in someone’s sin and that’s a sin in itself, and after researching and reading/seeing all the horrible effects that abortifacients, euthanasia, and contraceptives have on people and society, there is NO way I could ever support these in any way for anyone.

Like I said, whatever happens, I trust God and His will for me. It’s just…I was really set on becoming a pharmacist already, I really wanted to become knowledgeable in medicine and help people live healthier and make a difference by being pro-life, now I don’t know what I’m going to do for a career and how to support my family in the future, and I’m going to be disappointing the people I love in my life and they’re going to be judging me. I’m worried that I’ll succumb to pressure and follow through with pharmacy school despite the moral implications…

The only other career I was equally interested in was becoming a naturopathic doctor because I love natural and holistic medicine, but even with that career, in the naturopathic medicine school, I would potentially have to deal with various sketchy New Age and false spirituality practices that are also dangerous.
It’s like I can’t pursue any of my dream careers, and the people in my life don’t understand me fully, cause they think I’m just being “too much” again. It’s really confusing and frustrating.

What should I do, guys? Should I still become a pharmacist? What would you do if you were in my situation?
Have any of you been in a situation like this? What did you do?
Does anyone have suggestions for other medical/healthcare careers I can pursue that are similar to a pharmacist and naturopathic doctor, that help people heal and live healthier and that have a good salary to support a family, without having to deal with grave immoral practices?

I would really love some advice and prayers please.

I hope you guys don’t mind if I tag you @by-grace-of-god , @patron-saint-of-smart-asses , @alwaysabeautifullife , @emeraldboreas , @saulof-tarsus , @tradcatmaria , @cathy-sienna-40 , since you guys are aware of things like this happening and so more people can read and reblog this and possibly offer advice and prayers. Thank you, God bless <3

healing is hard

I’ve recently went through something so unreal to me that I’m still honestly pretty emotional and still working through it.
 I kept a little measly journal while I was in a psych ward, and I have now been home for almost a week and have typed up all six days I had spent there. This is going to be such a LONG post, but if you are struggling, or just curious about what a psych ward was like from my point of view, go on and read this.

Nagito has always had a bad relationship with his parents from what I can tell. He does call them on occasion, but they don’t always pick up. Once he was diagnosed with depression, anxiety, etc., they gave him medicine and left it at that. He’s never been to therapy of any kind. It’s kinda sad to think about, because I am in no way a therapist, but I really try my best. He’s currently on a schedule of three pills in the morning and two at night. I have to lock up the medicine cabinet though to make sure he has limited access to lethal drugs.

no offence but izzy is the smartest character in the show so why tf did the writers 1st of all have her fall into the trap of taking a highly addictive lethal drug in the first place and then now have her taking yet more unknown substances from someone who we already know for sure is evil?? i swear to god if they fuck her over again like they did in 2a i’m going to fucking riot no offense tho

Jack Jones Jr. was executed on Monday, April 24th 2017 at Cummins Unit, Arkansas for the 1995 rape and murder of Mary Phillips, and the near-fatal beating of Phillips’ 11 year old daughter Lucy. Investigators were dispatched to Phillips’ tax accounting office, after being called to investigate a double homicide. They found Phillips on the floor of her office, having been raped, beaten and strangled to death. Lucy was found bloodied and tied to a chair in a closet, and investigators began taking pictures of the crime scene around her before she opened one eye, and they realized she was still alive. Lucy went on to identify her attacker for police, and later stood up in court and pointed at him as the man who had killed her mother and beaten her almost to death. Jones later confessed to the murder of another woman in the south of Florida years before he came to Arkansas.

During his 22 years on death row, Jones suffered from diabetes which led to the amputation of his leg, and was reportedly in tremendous pain. He did not attend his clemency hearing, and instead asked his attorney to read a letter to Lucy Phillips and her father. It read:
“I am so very, very sorry. I haven’t wanted clemency ever. I have no interest in it. For so many years, I kept a grainy, black and white Xerox photo of you on the surgical table, kept it taped to the inside of my notebook and at the bottom, I had written in bold letters, ‘YOU DID THIS”. I kept it so I would never forget to remember. Some guys don’t. Some make every effort not to or they lie to themselves and survive on denial. I’ve never been able to do such a thing. Your wish is and always has been that I die, and I could never, ever deny you this. Know, too, that I have suffered at times tremendously. I have been in pain since day one and subconsciously, I am told I have continually sabotaged my healing out of guilt, feeling that I’m not deserving. I shall not ask to be forgiven, for I haven’t the right. I’m so very, very sorry, Lacy. I’ve no excuse. None. For years and years, I’ve hoped and prayed you’d be ok. Sounds stupid, I know, but I am deeply sorry. In dynamic peace, Jack H. Jones II.”

Jones stated that he took advantage of his right to a clemency hearing to stand in solidarity with the other seven death row inmates who were scheduled to be executed. The board of commissioners who oversee clemency are required by law to review all clemency petitions that are submitted, whether the inmate actually wants clemency or not. When asked if he would accept clemency if it was granted to him, Jones replied “There’s no way I would spend another 20 years in this rat hole. Oh, hell no.”
In the execution chamber, when asked if he had any final words, Jones said - Well, I just want to let the James family and Lacey [know] how sorry I am. I can’t believe I did something to her. I tried to be respectful from the time I took and become a better person. I hope I did better. I hope over time you could learn who I really am and I am not a monster. There was a reason why those things happened that day. I am so sorry Lacey, try to understand I love you like my child.”

He also gave a written statement to his attorney to be read, which stated - “I want people to know that when I came to prison I made up my mind that I would be a better person when I left than when I came in. I had no doubt in my mind that I would make every effort to do this. I’d like to think that I’ve accomplished this. I made every effort to be a good person - I practiced Buddhism and studied physics. I met the right people and did the right things. There are no words that would fully express my remorse for the pain that I caused.”

Jones was administered lethal drugs at 7:06pm, and was declared dead at 7:20pm (CST). He was the second man executed in Arkansas in 2017, and the eighth in the U.S.

Okay so I was watching Zootopia once again (5-7th time), and I just noticed that the Audience is never told or hinted to about how the grand scheme of Bellweather was put in place, how Mayor lionheart got involved, how otterton got involved with the case or why he was going to Mr. Big. And the mental gymnastics one has to go through to get to a reasonable system of events is quite extensive.

The only thing that really rustles me is that Judy’s rabbit hick parents were growing lethal rabid drug flowers in their fields.

“Hey kids, you stay out of that patch of plot convenience!! These pretty blue flowers will make you MURDER EVERYTHING if you injest them, which is why we’re growing so many, because for some reason it’s legal in this universe! You gettin all this, Jude?”

Johnny and former death row inmate Damien Echols join fellow protestors in Arkansas on April 14th. Johnny, Damien, and the other protestors were fighting against the mayor of Arkansas’ decision to execute 8 death row inmates in two weeks due to the state’s supply of lethal drugs about to expire.
