Drugs and alcohol in the assaults.
If you are one who frequents clubs and streets in cities in general but are not excluded the provincial villages to find out how there is a high spread of drugs and alcohol abuse without exclusion of age and social background.
This is worrying because it makes people in an altered state and provides crime with the tools to accumulate a lot of money to reinvest for other crimes or in commercial activities to clean up the money.
Nowadays, availability, low cost and society make drug use much easier to use than a few years ago and often the state of alteration leads to episodes of gratuitous violence or robbery for procuring money to procure the drug.
For this reason, the possibility of having to defend against an aggressor under the use of drugs has increased to such an extent that it must be considered as a notion of self-defence.
Drugs are substances of natural or synthetic derivation capable of altering one or more functions of the human organism.
Drugs may or may not give rise to physical dependence, this fact is very important as withdrawal syndrome causes inverse symptoms compared to the effects that the drug used induces and also a different approach to violence.
In addition, some substances are also anesthetizing and increase the pain threshold.
It is no coincidence that some drugs have been used in the past in some departments during the war and that many criminals act under the influence of drugs to inhibit fear and also to increase resistance.
This knowledge is fundamental because it allows us to use our knowledge to use the best strategy of escalation or attack against an attacker who is under amazing substance or alcohol.
Here are the main classes of drugs divided by action:
Psycho-depressive (they give physical and mental dependence)
- Ethyl alcohol
- Sedatives (sleeping pills and major and minor barbiturates)
- Opiates (morphine, heroin, codeine)
- Synthetic narcotics (methadone, talwin, etc.)
Psycho-stimulants (only give psychic dependence)
Psycho-altering or dialectical or hallucinogens (give mental dependence)
- Derivatives from Indian hemp (marijuana or hashish)
Read the rape drug post!
Now I have not deliberately inserted them all but it is only an over view on the most common and widespread ones but consider that today there are “amplifications” and “mix” of these drugs that make them even more devastating and above all produce a greater dependence for those who use them.
Some drugs create more of a physical addiction and others plus a psychological addiction, some both addictions.
Don’t consider psychological addictions less devastating than physical ones!
We can now examine the various types of Narcotic Substances not from the scientific point of view of the substance but to know the psychic effects and fundamental characteristics of those who take them.
Heroin after intake, which occurs intravenously, intramuscular or inhalation, has an effect that lasts for 4-6 hours.
Its analgesic power is triple the morphine, thus causing states of euphoria, fluid ideation, the external reality is lived with emotional detachment and attenuation of painful sensations.
It is therefore to be taken into account with regard to the methodology of behavior and defense, as a simple painful percussion could not give any effect.
It will therefore be appropriate to focus on a behaviour that is incapacityal to the joints or a percussion that causes a loss of consciousness.
Cocaine via nasal or intravenous intake.
It has a powerful stimulant action on all cerebro-spinal structures.
At psychic levels causes euphoria, increased mental activity state of well-being and decreased feeling of fatigue.
Tremors, seizures, stimulation of the respiratory center, the thermoregulator center, and the blood center also arise at higher doses, in some cases even hallucinations.
The subjects in question will then be recognizable by changes of complexion to the face, breath and lack of balance.
Today it is one of the drugs that is going more and more among young people but also for the less young perhaps because it is mistakenly considered less dangerous than heroin but it is only a false perception.
It is the classic anti-depressant drug that goes well with today’s society “that always wants you at the stake” but this is also an illusion, as if society itself were drugged by built and not real models.
The intake is made orally or intravenously.
They cause increases in vigilance, increased morale, reduced feeling of fatigue, increased ability to concentrate and endure prolonged physical and mental exertion.
Headaches, delusional ideas, hallucinations, tremors and anxiety appear for prolonged use.
Mariujana and Hashish
The typical use is by inhalation by smoking the substance.
These are very popular and easy to find.
The effects appear after a few minutes of inhalation after half an hour after taking oral.
They consist in a sense of physical well-being, relaxation, euphoria, dreamy state, alteration of time and space, accelerated and inconsistent ideas, uncontrolled flow of thoughts.
For high dosages, fantasy and reality blend with an accentuation of colors, visual hallucinations, acoustics, alteration of body pattern, states of anguish.
What no one says and knows is that by not cultivating it at home or preparing the substances yourself, the drug wholesalers are not priests and what they want is that you feel that the substance that their drug dealers sell you feels like the best and for this are added additives such as anti depressants, calmers and other substances that give you a good feeling of well-being and come back to the same drug dealer because “he has the same stuff. good.”
Today even if the substance is illegal it has entered a phase of tolerance as if in the common sense it is no longer considered a drug but I repeat it is not as if you grow it yourself in the house.
LSD after a few minutes of intake determines: tachycardia, salivation, alterations of the emotional sphere, euphoric states, hallucinations, bodily alterations such as sense of stretching of the limbs, sense of lightness or heaviness of the body.
The state of introspection induced by use can lead to suicide by bringing out problems of the unconscious that appear to the subject of extreme gravity.
Morphine causes on the central nervous system, effects of analgesia, mental torpor, dullness of painful sensations, depression of cough reflex, depression of respiratory centers, vomiting, peripheral vasodilation from histamine release.
The psychic effects are, however, widespread well-being, a sense of tranquility and euphoria, a lively flow of ideas, a state of numbness and drowsiness.
When taken in the mood causes a accentuated flash effect with loss of reality.
Consider that the new drugs, difficult even to recognize, are 730.
This is what emerges from the latest report from theEuropean Drugs and Addiction Observatory (EDR).
Only 55 of these substances were reported in 2018 and the Italian Society of Psychiatry (Sip) and other experts are sounding the alarm about the effects defined as “terrible” of these new substances.
Here are the deadliest and best-known drugs of recent years
Also called ice, ping or crystal meth. The effects are also ten times more devastating than those of cocaine: seizures, lack of sleep, loss of appetite, deformation of the face, increased heart rate and pressure, stroke. It was first built in the late 1800s in the Far East, between the Philippines and Thailand. A single dose is around a tenth of a gram. Price from 30 to 50 euros.
2. Rape drugs.
It has also spread to Italy. The most famous is GHB: an odorless, colorless, tasteless substance but easy to administer through alcoholic beverages and non-alcoholic beverages. It is administered with the aim of committing a sexual assault. The danger of this drug lies in the fact that it is virtually impossible to notice its intake. Along with this drug there is also what bears the name “Scoop” which is able to increase sexual desire and the sense of relaxation.
The name translated into Italian means “crocodile”. It is one of the deadliest synthetic drugs out there. She was born in Russia but is also spreading in Italy. It is a desomorphine, with painkiller effects much more powerful than morphine. It can be prepared by anyone. It is a lethal compound for those who take it: disfigured faces, worn limb skin. This drug completely eats the organs until it even leads to death.
4. Purple drank.
It’s a mix of codeine, alcohol and sprite. Codeine is an opiate substance. It has powerful sedative and psychoactive effects: it devours the skin and pierces the intestines. It can also lead to suffocation and death in case of abuse.
5. Hitler’s drug.
It owes its name to the fact that during the Nazi regime the officers of the Reich gave it to the military to charge them. It is very easy to produce. It is smoked or injected. Its effects have a duration of more than 12 hours.
It is also called a dragonfly drug. Among the most common symptoms: tachycardia, agitation, visual hallucinations and psychosis.
It is called “the zombie drug” because, among its side effects, there is also cannibalism. It is easily available on the internet even at low cost. One type of mephedrone is the Miao Miao tablet that has spread in England and has a completely anesthetizing effect. In the United States, the Flakka spreads, which has already claimed dozens of lives.
What experts think
Often many of the new drugs are the result of ‘recycling’ of products synthesized for therapeutic drug purposes and often abandoned due to adverse effects.
Today through information found on the web or as word of mouth and complacent doctors some people have started to drug themselves with medicines found on the shelf in pharmacies via prescription and composing mixes.
Since 2009, the emergence of new synthetic opioids, which have extremely powerful molecules, has also begun and poses a serious threat to public health.
These are products of considerable power such as fentanyl, the forefather of this family that has an action about 100 times greater than that of morphine.
Fentanyl (also known as fentanyl or fentanyl, or by the trade names Sublimaze, Actiq, Durogesic, Duragesic, Fentanest, Effentora, Onsolis, Instanyl, Abstral and others) is a powerful synthetic opioid analgesic, belonging to the class of 4-anilidopiperidine.
Fentanyl is about 100 times more potent than morphine: 100 micrograms of fentanyl equate to approximately 30 mg of morphine and 125 mg of petidine (meperidine) in analgesic activity, with rapid onset and short duration of action. It is a strong agonist of the μ receptor for opioids. Historically it has been used to treat chronic pain and is commonly used before surgeries or “invasive” maneuvers such as anesthetic, in association with a benzodiazepine. It has an LD50 of 3.1 mg/kg in rats and an LD50 of 0.03 mg/kg in monkeys.
The greatest risks are stimulants such as synthetic cathesions and phenylamines, responsible for episodes of paranoid delirium, severe psychomotor agitation, aggression, hallucinations, as well as seizures, even coma.
But synthetic cannabimimetics are also often the cause of potentially fatal poisonings and often non-transient psychotic symptoms.
The effects on physical and mental health are extremely variable.
Some data on drug use in Europe
The European Drugs and Addiction Observatory (EMCDDA) calculates around 88 million (25%) Europeans who have consumed illicit substances at least once in their lives. Cannabis and cocaine are still the most consumed (24.8 and 5.1%) respectively.
Synthetic drugs in the United States killed 28,000 people in a single year. Millions of young and old are all world-olds who use it systematically.
Synthetic drugs, also known as opioids, are among the main causes of death of the modern era.
They are chemical compounds that produce devastating effects on the body.
Many of these are invisible, that is, they do not have color, taste or smell, often very cheap and made in an artisanal way.
Light drugs: when cannabis can’t be seized
On drugs, it must be said that the Genoa Review Tribunal has said that sativa light cannabis cannot be seized ‘in advance’.
It should be proved that the Thc level exceeds 0.5%.
The Supreme Court ruled on 30 May that products containing sativa cannabis but without drug capacity can be sold.
The most common substance that causes psychic/motor alterations is alcohol.
Any drink containing ethyl alcohol (also called ethanol) is defined as an alcoholic beverage.
The word alcohol comes from Arabic الغول (al-ghal, spirit) or الكحل (al-ku’l, stibnite powder obtained by sublimation from antimonia), a term that reveals the alchemical origin of this substance, to which were attributed the magical and spiritual properties contained in the elixir.
Commercially, two large categories of alcoholic beverages can be distinguished: low-grade spirits, less than 21%vol, such as beer or wine, and spirits, with an alcohol content of more than 21 %vol.
Despite this, drinks can be defined as non-alcoholic when they contain 0 to 1.3 degrees alcohol, alcoholic when they contain 1.4 to 20 degrees alcohol and, when they contain from 21 degrees alcohol to rise.
Say for yourself alcohol is categorized as a central nervous system depressor.
This means that its effects are present both physically and behaviorally.
Alcohol intake always causes intoxication to the body and the severity of it is determined by the blood concentration that this reaches that is measurable through tools.
The level of tolerability of alcohol depends on the subject, gender and body mass of the individual.
The 4 stages of alcohol intoxication:
1 – Unpredictable behavior alteration
As soon as alcohol begins to affect the physiology of a person’s organism at the chemical level, it may begin to lose its inhibitions.
There are those who react differently to light alcohol poisoning.
Uncontrollable manifestations of emotions, sudden changes in mood, propensity to openings with strangers, meditative behavior, disinterest, anti-social behavior, boisterous behavior, irritating behavior, immaturity, expiring language, desire to attract attention.
2 – Temporary disassociated behavior
As the specific concentration of alcohol grows in the blood of the individual, the more his rational thinking decreases.
Those who are regular drinkers only at this stage present the symptoms shown in the previous step.
In addition, the following symptoms are added: decreased alertness, inability to make simple comparisons between situations, objects, etc. etc…, increased desire to continue drinking, short-term memory loss, repetition of newly expressed concepts, inconsistent statements, aggression, predisposition to violence, verbal defiance behavior.
3 – Partial loss of normal brain functions
Alcohol induces an alteration of the specific weight of the liquid contained in the middle ear.
This liquid is used by the body to determine where it is in the three dimensions.
Its alteration leads to the brain incorrect information about the position of the head, legs, torso etc…
This situation leads to the total/partial loss of balance in the individual, as well as to the manifestation of more or less violent dizziness.
4 – Total loss of coordination and muscle control
At this stage alcohol begins to influence the central nervous system in a heavy way and this point even simple coordination movements are difficult.
Difficulty articulating words, inability to walk.
This is the pre-ethyl coma phase.
The critical phase for alcohol-related assaults
The effects of alcohol intensify by up to 25% in the hour after the last drink.
So a person can be in the “phase two” of alcohol intoxication and stop drinking and within an hour finish perfectly in the next stage.
The most dangerous phase, at the level of aggression, is the second, where the individual still has relatively control from his own body, but is gradually losing his inhibitions.
Here the risk of violence is quite high and it becomes even more so when the subject intentionally uses alcohol to release his aggressive charge.
Discussions under the influence of alcohol are widespread and for this reason it is important to move away from subjects who intentionally see them drinking continuously inside bars, clubs, discos, avoiding visual/verbal or physical contact.
As you could see both drugs and alcohol can alter people’s status and lead them to perform free violent actions or to procure money for other substances.
In addition to violence we say among men, there is also a separate discourse with respect to gender violence where the state altered by drugs or alcohol is often present in episodes of violence against women or attempts at rape.
In addition, there is always the danger of those who use the car or other under the influence of drugs and alcohol, an ever-present problem and from which you have to be very careful both for potential accidents and trivial discussions at traffic lights.
