UK Ban on Poppers?

Hi guys,Ccock and Poppers

Below is an article from ‘Pink News’ a couple of days ago regarding the Government thinking of a blanket ban on ‘legal highs’ which could include poppers.

 

The Home Office has told PinkNews that it’s “too early” to say if further restrictions are to be placed on the use of poppers, following the publication of a report into legal highs.

The report has called for a blanket ban on all brain-altering drugs in a bid to tackle legal highs.

The government said it will consider legislation introduced in Ireland four years ago that bans the sale of all “psychoactive” substances but exempts some, such as alcohol and tobacco.

It is illegal to sell amyl nitrite (poppers) for human consumption in the UK but they are often sold in sex shops and gay venues as “air fresheners”.

On Thursday, the Home Office told PinkNews that it was “too early” to say if further restrictions would include poppers and that the scope of a potential blanket ban on legal highs was “still to be decided”.

The intoxicating nature of poppers, risks to health and potential social harms, are all issues that need to be considered, officials said.

In July, the Home Office released the latest official figures on drug use in England & Wales.

It showed that drug use in the past year amongst gay and bisexual men was three times higher (33%) than use amongst heterosexual men (11.1%). For lesbian and bisexual women use was more than four times as high (22.9%) than for heterosexual women (5.1%).

Just as for heterosexuals, the most commonly used illicit drug amongst LGB people is cannabis, used by around 1 in 5 gay or bi men, and 1 in 6 lesbian or bi women.

Poppers are the second most commonly used drug by gay and bi men, and 25 times more common than amongst straight men.

A separate report published by the Home Office today found that there is “no obvious” link between tough laws and levels of illegal drug use.

Liberal Democrat Home Office Minister Norman Baker said the report, comparing the UK with other countries, should end “mindless rhetoric” on drugs policy.

He accused the Conservatives of “suppressing” the findings for months.

Tory MP Michael Ellis said the Lib Dems had “hijacked” it for political gain.

Lib Dem Crime and Prevention Minister Norman Baker said: “The Liberal Democrats believe drugs policy should be based on evidence, not dogma or the desire to sound tough. If you are anti-drugs you should be pro-reform.

“For too long successive governments have been unwilling to look at the evidence. This comprehensive report shows that other ways of tackling drug addiction and supply can save lives and cut crime.

“It’s time for a radical change in British drugs policy. The fact is we should spend more time and effort cracking down on the Mr Bigs’ and criminal gangs who traffic drugs than users and addicts who should be helped to recover, not put behind bars.”

A Home Office spokesperson said: “This government has absolutely no intention of decriminalising drugs.

“Our drugs strategy is working and there is a long-term downward trend in drug misuse in the UK.”

PWD Back in business?

PWD Poppers

Looks like the PWD brands are trying to come back after all this time.

Who owns it now?

Do they have the ‘original recipe’?

Do they have the right setup for producing it?

Why come back now?

Has someone just bought the rights to the brands?

After all this time it looks like PWD brands are trying to be resurrected. Will they ever be the same or is it too little too late?

Making Poppers-Washing & Drying

Hi Guys,

Have a loot at the video below.  Basically it’s showing the process of washing and drying the nitrites after production.

The saturated saline solution cleans the nitrites and the addition of the bicarbonate of soda neutralizes the remaining acid.After this stage the final remaining nitrites are dried with anhydrous magnesium sulfate.

Body Fluids!

Hi Guys!

I just came across this fascinating piece of information and I thought I might share it with you.  Is it Poppers related? Err, no not really but you could argue the information could be used to compare the amount of spunk produced after a sniffing Poppers against that produced normally.  I’m betting It’d be twice as much with Poppers!

BF

Here’s how we came up with the numbers:

Tears
According to Discovery Health, one person produces five to ten ounces of basal tears—the constant tears in our eyes that keep them from drying out—a day. On average, that’s 7.5 ounces a day, which equates to 21.4 gallons a year.

Semen
Per the World Health Organization, men produce an average of 1.5 milliliters of semen every time they have sex. And using research from the Kinsey Institute, we determined that a 33-year-old man has sex an average of 89 times a year. That comes to 4.5 ounces a year, or exactly three shots worth of your favorite liquor.

Urine
According to the Mercer University School of Medicine, the average person pees anywhere from 750 to 2,000 milliliters of urine every day, which averages out to 1,375 milliliters. That means you pee somewhere around 501,875 milliliters, which equates to about 132 gallons—enough to fill six average-sized bathtubs that hold around 21 gallons each.

Poop
According to the book The Truth About Poop, people produce one ounce of poop for each 12 pounds of their body weight. And the National Center for Health Statistics says the average weight for an adult male in the United States is 189.8 pounds. That means the average man produces 360 pounds of poop a year—almost one whole pound a day. Want an easy visualization? That was the playing weight of Minnesota Vikings left tackle Bryant McKinnie in 2010.

Sweat
An average person sweats between 1.5 to 2 liters per hour during exercise, according to Chad M. Kerksick, Ph.D., an assistant professor of exercise physiology at the University of Oklahoma. For most healthy adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends getting at least 150 minutes (or 2.5 hours) of moderate aerobic activity a week. That comes out to 130 hours per year, or roughly 227 liters. That’s as good as 60 gallons, enough to fill 3.24 gas tanks in America’s most popular car, the Honda Accord.

Saliva
Though there’s much debate about the amount of saliva one healthy person produces each day, Mark Davidson, M.D., a gastroenterologist in Beverly Hills, pegs it at around one liter. So if the average person produces 365 liters of saliva a year, that’s more than 96 gallons a year. And since there are 42 gallons in 1 U.S. crude oil barrel, that means you spit around 2.3 barrels a year. What oil crisis?

Lockerroom Vs Health Canada

If you have been following the situation in Canada about Poppers legality there and the Health Canada then you might find the following article from www.courthousenews.com interesting.

No One Has to Get Hurt, Unless You’re Into That
By DARRYL GREER

VANCOUVER, B.C. (CN) – A sex toy company says in court that its leather-cleaner stock was seized because Canadian law improperly classifies it as a “drug.”
The leather cleaner Lockerroom Marketing manufactures and markets is “for cleaning personal leather apparel used in the niche market of sexual fetishism that includes, among other things, bondage,” according to its application in the Federal Court of Canada. “The applicant also sells the type of personal leather apparel on which the leather cleaner is used, such as harnesses and cockrings.”
It says its products feature “clear warnings against human ingestion” on the labels.
Back in May, Health Canada and the police officers inspected Lockerroom’s warehouse in the Vancouver suburb of Delta, and agents concluded that the leather cleaner product is a “drug,” seized the product and requested that the company stop selling it under a voluntary recall of products containing alkyl nitrites.
The company complied with the recall, but “is suffering economic loss and lost business opportunity as a result of Health Canada’s decision,” the application states.
While the products are marketed as leather cleaners and liquid incense, Health Canada claims the products are commonly known as “poppers,” which pose a health danger when used to get high. Health Canada did not return a request for comment.
“Products containing alkyl nitrites could pose serious risks, including death, to Canadians, depending on the amount used, how frequently they are used and how long they are used for, as well as the person’s health and the other medications they may be taking,” its website states. “Since it is difficult to control how much is inhaled, people can accidentally overdose. Swallowing these products can lead to serious medical complications and may be fatal.”
The Food and Drugs Act defines a “drug” as “any substance or mixture of substances manufactured, sold or represented for use in (a) the diagnosis, treatment, mitigation or prevention of a disease, disorder or abnormal physical state, or its symptoms, in human beings or animals, (b) restoring, correcting or modifying organic functions in human beings or animals, or (c) disinfection in premises in which food is manufactured, prepared or kept.”
Lockerroom Marketing is represented in its action against the Minister of Health by Lyndsay Smith of Fowler and Smith Barristers in Vancouver.
