      Marijuana throughout the United States of America has been contaminated/laced with opiates and barbiturates like Secobarbital/Seconal. Naturally, marijuana is a non-addictive medicinal herb. The contamination of marijuana, makes it addictive and increases tolerance levels of barbiturates. Therefore, marijuana is labeled a gateway drug to hard drugs, because it loses effectiveness. Also, alcohol enhances the effects of barbiturates, and can result in strange or psychotic behavior in seemingly normal people. Seconal originated in the 1920's, which is also about the same time marijuana was labeled a dangerous psychotic drug in the U.S. Mexico controlled the marijuana trade at that time, and America had no control of it or the profits.

      Barbiturates are drugs that act as central nervous system depressants, and, by virtue of this, they produce a wide spectrum of effects, from mild sedation to anesthesia. They are also effective as anxiolytics, hypnotics and as anticonvulsants. They have addiction potential, both physical and psychological. Barbiturates have now largely been replaced by benzodiazepines in routine medical practice for example in the treatment of anxiety and insomnia mainly because benzodiazepines are significantly less dangerous in overdose. Barbiturates are still used however, in general anathesia as well as for epilepsy. Also used in alcohol detoxification. (The effects of alcohol are reduced/ difficulty getting drunk)
      Tolerance, dependence and overdose
      Older adults and pregnant women should consider the risks associated with barbiturate use. When a person ages, the body becomes less able to rid itself of barbiturates. As a result, people over the age of sixty-five are at higher risk of experiencing the harmful effects of barbiturates, including drug dependence and accidental overdose.[16] When barbiturates are taken during pregnancy, the drug passes through the mother's bloodstream to her fetus. After the baby is born, it may experience withdrawal symptoms and have trouble breathing. In addition, nursing mothers who take barbiturates may transmit the drug to their babies through breast milk.[17]
      Tolerance and dependence
      With regular use tolerance to the effects of barbiturates develops. This in turn may lead to a need for increasing doses of the drug to get the original desired pharmacological or therapeutic effect.[18] Barbiturate use can lead to both psychological and physical dependence and the drugs have a high abuse liability.[19] Psychological addiction to barbiturates can develop quickly. The GABAA receptor, one of barbiturates' main sites of action, is thought to play a pivotal role in the development of tolerance to and dependence on barbiturates, as well as the euphoric "high" that results from their abuse.[19] The mechanism by which barbiturate tolerance develops is believed to be different than that of ethanol or benzodiazepines, even though these drugs have been shown to exhibit cross-tolerance with each other.[20] The management of a physical dependence on barbiturates is stabalisation on the long-acting barbiturate phenobarbitol followed by a gradual titration down of dose. The slowly eliminated phenobarbitol lessens the severity of the withdrawal syndrome and reduces the chances of serious barbiturate withdrawal effects such as seizures.[21] Antipsychotics are not recommended for barbiturate withdrawal (or other CNS depressant withdrawal states) especially clozapine, olanzapine or low potency phenothiazines eg chlorpromazine as they lower the seizure threshold and can worsen withdrawal effects; if used extreme caution is required.[22]
      An overdose results when a person takes a larger-than-prescribed dose of a drug. Symptoms of an overdose typically include; sluggishness, incoordination, difficulty in thinking, slowness of speech, faulty judgment, drowsiness or coma, shallow breathing, staggering and in severe cases coma and death.[23] The lethal dosage of barbiturates varies greatly with tolerance and from one individual to another. Even in inpatient settings, however, the development of tolerance is still a problem, as dangerous and unpleasant withdrawal symptoms can result when the drug is stopped after dependence has developed.[18] Barbiturates in overdose with other CNS depressants for example, alcohol, opiates or benzodiazepines is even more dangerous due to additive CNS and respiratory depressant effects. In the case of benzodiazepines not only do they have additive effects, barbiturates also increase the binding affinity of the benzodiazepine binding site thus leading to an exaggerated effect of benzodiazepines.[24]

      Secobarbital (marketed by Eli Lilly and Company under the brand name Seconal) is a barbiturate derivative drug that was first synthesized in 1928. It possesses anaesthetic, anticonvulsant, sedative and hypnotic properties. In the United Kingdom, it was known as Quinalbarbitone.
      It is available as either a free acid or a sodium salt. The free acid is a white amorphous powder that is slightly soluble in water and very soluble in ethanol. The salt is a white hygroscopic powder that is soluble in water and ethanol.
      [edit] Secobarbital sodium
      The sodium salt of secobarbital is classified separately from the free acid, as follows:
      • CAS number: 309-43-3
      • Chemical formula: C12H18N2NaO3
      • Molecular weight: 260.265
      Side Effects:

      Somnolence (or "drowsiness") is a state of near-sleep, a strong desire for sleep, or sleeping for unusually long periods (c.f. hypersomnia). It has two distinct meanings, referring both to the usual state preceding falling asleep, and the chronic condition referring to being in that state independent of a circadian rhythm. The disorder characterized by the latter condition is most commonly associated with the use of prescription medications such as mirtazapine or zolpidem.
      It is considered a lesser impairment of consciousness than stupor or coma.
      • Impaired motor functions
      o Impaired coordination
      o Impaired balance
      Dizziness refers to an impairment in spatial perception and stability.[1] It is considered imprecise.[2] It can be used to mean vertigo, presyncope, disequilibrium,[3] or for a non-specific feeling such as giddiness or foolishness.[4]
      • Vertigo is a specific medical term used to describe the sensation of spinning or having one's surroundings spin about them. Many people find vertigo very disturbing and often report associated nausea and vomiting.
      • Disequilibrium is the sensation of being off balance, and is most often characterized by frequent falls in a specific direction. This condition is not often associated with nausea or vomiting.
      • Presyncope is lightheadedness, muscular weakness and feeling faint as opposed to a syncope, which is actually fainting.
      • Non-specific dizziness is often psychiatric in origin. It is a diagnosis of exclusion and can sometimes be brought about by hyperventilation.[5]
      • Anxiety
      • Confusion
      • Agitation, irritability, or excitability
      • Headache
      • Nausea
      • Vomiting
      • Nightmares
      • Increased sensitivity to pain
      • Allergic reactions
      o Difficulty breathing

      Secobarbital is a fairly addictive drug, and withdrawal symptoms can occur if long-term usage is abruptly ended. Withdrawal symptoms can include:
      • Anxiety
      • Insomnia
      • Lack of appetite
      • Seizures
      • Tremors

      Recreational use:

      Secobarbital began to be widely abused in the 1960s and 1970s, although with the advent of benzodiazepines, they have become less commonly used. Secobarbital has acquired many nicknames, the most common being reds, "red devils", or "red dillies" (it was originally packaged in red capsules). Another common nickname is "seccies". Another common nickname is "red hearts" according to the Wegman's School of Pharmacy curriculum. A less common nickname is "dolls"; this was partly responsible for the title of Jacqueline Susann's novel Valley of the Dolls, whose main characters use secobarbital and other such drugs. Another popular brand of barbiturate pill Tuinal contained a combination of secobarbital and amobarbital but is now rarely prescribed due to problems with abuse and overdose.
      Cause of death of Judy Garland
      Judy Garland, of "The Wizard of Oz" fame, was found dead in her bathroom by her husband Mickey Deans on June 22, 1969. The stated exact cause of death by coroner Gavin Thursdon was accidental overdose of barbiturates; her blood contained the equivalent of 10 Seconal 100 mg capsules.[2]
      Cause of death of Alan Wilson
      Alan Wilson, vocalist and founding member of Canned Heat, was found dead at age 27 in 1970, from a self-induced overdose of seconal. [3]
      Cause of Death of Jimi Hendrix
      Jimi Hendrix (musician), musician and vocalist died while at girlfriend's Monika Dannemann hotel room in London. It is uncertain how he died, but the coroner said that he had taken at least nine of his girlfriend's pills.
      Cause of Death of Beverley Kenney
      Beverly Kenney (January 29, 1932, Harrison, New Jersey - April 13, 1960, New York City) was an American jazz singer.Kenney committed suicide through a combination of alcohol and Seconal. She was 28.
      Cause of Death of Carole Landis
      Carole Landis was a popular actress of the 1940s who committed suicide on an overdose of Seconal in her Brentwood Heights, California home on July 5, 1948. She was 29 years old.

      Seconal Oral Use

      This medication is used for a short time (no more than 2 weeks) to treat sleeping problems (insomnia). It may also be used to calm you just before surgery. Secobarbital belongs to a class of drugs known as barbiturate hypnotics. It works by affecting certain parts of the brain to cause drowsiness and calm you.

      How to use Seconal Oral
      Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking secobarbital and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
      For sleep, take this medication by mouth on an empty stomach, immediately before you go to bed or as directed by your doctor. Only take this medication if you have time for a full night's sleep. For use before surgery, take as directed by your doctor.
      Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.
      If you are taking this medication for sleep, take it only when you need help falling asleep. Taking it regularly will make the drug work less well over time. Do not take more of this medication than prescribed. Doing so may increase side effects. Talk with your doctor if this medication stops working well.
      This medication may cause withdrawal reactions, especially if it has been used regularly for a long time or in high doses. In such cases, withdrawal symptoms (such as anxiety, vivid dreams, shaking hands/fingers, twitching, trouble sleeping) may occur if you suddenly stop using this medication. Withdrawal from secobarbital can be severe and include hallucinations, seizures and (rarely) death. To prevent withdrawal reactions, your doctor may reduce your dose gradually. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details, and report any withdrawal reactions immediately.
      Along with its benefits, this medication may rarely cause abnormal drug-seeking behavior (addiction). This risk may be increased if you have abused alcohol or drugs in the past. Take this medication exactly as prescribed to lessen the risk of addiction.
