There are several variations possible with this procedure ; e .g ., the Lark cavity . • Passage of toxic vapors through the intact cigarettes so some is absorbed by the tobacco rod and/or filter tip . • Place the intact package or a carton in a suitably sized vessel, evacuate to low pressure, introduce gaseous contaminant until vessel pressure returns to atmospheric . Some of the contaminant will enter the “sealed” pack and be absorbed by the tobacco or filter tip material . • Open carton, rig with explosive charge, reseal carton . • Open carton, add irritant or contact poison to outside of cigarette packs, reseal carton . .. “Claimed Tampering” The most difficult situation we may have to deal with is the following : RJR received a phone call from some one in a large city (New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc .) and the caller says “I have doctored some of your cigarettes on sale in this city and have introduced a deadly poison”, then hangs up . No brand is specified . The truth is, the caller has done nothing to our cigarettes! Possible Contaminants The choice of contaminants is legion . Any member of the following categories could be introduced : • Classical “poisons” such as cyanide . • Alkaloids such as strychnine or atropine . • Poisons available from any garden supply store such as fungicides, herbicides, insecticides . • Irritants such as pepper, cleaning products, dried poison oak or poison ivy leaves . • I!allucinogens such as LSD or PC? . • Plant materials such as marijuana, nightshake, sumac, toadstools, mushrooms . • Odorants • Explosives •$iological materials much as bacteria, fungi . • Common medicines whose effect on smoke taste, etc . are unknown ; e .g ., aspirin, Tylenol . The fate during smoking of many of the candidates noted above is unknown . Some materials relatively innocuous if taken orally may have harmful effects if partially decomposed during the smoking process or may have an harmful effect if inhaled unchanged . Tampering Candidates . Disgruntled employees : If tampering occurs in one of our factories, less effort would be required to conceal the alteration . Also, more cigarettes could be involved . • Antismoking proponents : They would not intentionally plan to cause permanent damage to the smoker but their lack of knowledge about how a cigarette functions during smoking might result in more harm than originally anticipated . . Pranksters : Here again, harm to smoker may be more than intended . . Psychotics : Difficult to predict level of harm to smoker because logic is absent . . Competitors : Very unlikely .

BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) – The last thing Andrea Fernandez recalls before being drugged is holding her newborn baby on a Bogota city bus. Police …found her three days later, muttering to herself and wandering topless along the median strip of a busy highway. Her face was badly beaten and her son was gone. Fernandez is just one of hundreds of victims every month who, according to Colombian hospitals, are temporarily turned into zombies by a home-grown drug called scopolamine which has been embraced by thieves and rapists. “When I woke up in the hospital, I asked for my baby and nobody said anything. They just looked at me,” Fernandez said, weeping. Police believe her son Diego was taken by a gang which traffics in infants. Colorless, odorless and tasteless, scopolamine is slipped into drinks and sprinkled onto food. Victims become so docile that they have been known to help thieves rob their homes and empty their bank accounts. Women have been drugged repeatedly over days and gang-raped or rented out as prostitutes. In the case of Fernandez, the mother of three was rendered submissive enough to surrender her youngest child. Most troubling for police is the way the drug acts on the brain. Since scopolamine completely blocks the formation of memories, unlike most date-rape drugs used in the United States and elsewhere, it is usually impossible for victims to ever identify their aggressors. “When a patient (of U.S. date-rape drugs) is under hypnosis, he or she usually recalls what happened. But with scopolamine, this isn’t possible because the memory was never recorded,” said Dr. Camilo Uribe, the world’s leading expert on the drug. Scopolamine has a long, dark history in Colombia dating back to before the Spanish conquest. Legend has it that Colombian Indian tribes used the drug to bury alive the wives and slaves of fallen chiefs, so that they would quietly accompany their masters into the afterworld. Nazi “angel of death” Joseph Mengele experimented on scopolamine as an interrogation drug. And scopolamine’s sedative and amnesia-..producing qualities were used by mothers in the early 20th century to help them through childbirth. Finding the drug in Colombia these days is not hard. The tree which naturally produces scopolamine grows wild around the capital and is so famous in the countryside that mothers warn their children not to fall asleep below its yellow and white flowers. The tree is popularly known as the “borrachero,” or “..get-..you-drunk,” and the pollen alone is said to conjure up strange dreams. “We probably should put some sort of fence up,” jokes biologist Gustavo Morales at Bogota’s botanical gardens, eyeing children playing with borrachero seeds everywhere. “If you ate a few of those, it would kill you.” Although scopolamine can be easily extracted from the seeds, experienced criminals hardly ever bother with them, police say. Pure, cheap scopolamine is brought across the border from neighboring Ecuador, where the borrachero tree is harvested for medical purposes, Uribe said. The alkaloid is used legally in medicines across the world to treat everything from motion sickness to the tremors of Parkinson’s disease. The use of scopolamine by criminals appears to be confined to Colombia, at least for now, and it’s not clear why the drug is such a rampant problem in Colombia. Some analysts blame it on a culture of crime in the Andean nation, home to the world’s largest kidnapping and cocaine industries, not to mention Latin America’s longest-..running guerrilla war. There are so many scopolamine cases that they usually don’t make the news unless particularly bizarre. One such incident involved three young Bogota women who preyed on men by smearing the drug on their breasts and luring their victims to take a lick. Losing all willpower, the men readily gave up their bank access codes. The breast-..temptress thieves then held them hostage for days while draining their accounts. The U.S. Embassy in Bogota takes scopolamine very seriously and offers staff tips on how avoid being drugged. One piece of advice may seem obvious: Don’t let your drinks out of your sight when at a Bogota bar or nightclub. Still, at least three visiting U.S. government employees here have been drugged and robbed over the past two years. Other American victims from time to time appear at the embassy seeking help, still shaking off a scopolamine hangover. “I remember one case, an American reported being drugged,” an embassy official said. “He says to his doorman ‘Why did you let them walk out with my stuff.’ The doorman says, ‘Because you told me to.'”

WHAT IS THIS “HERBAL DATE-RAPE DRUG” I KEEP HEARING ABOUT, DOCTOR?

I’m glad you asked. The “herbal date-rape drug” refers to a simple herb

named rohydra, which grows naturally throughout the Northwest. Just as

ephedra is an herb which forms the organic basis of methamphetamines (i.e.,

“speed” or “crank”), pharmacists use the herb rohydra to derive a compound

called rohypnol, which in pill form is called “the date-rape drug.” In short,

the herbal date-rape drug rohydra is merely the natural source for the

pharmaceutical date-rape drug rohypnol. Only it’s herbal.

WHAT IS A “SMOOFIE”?

“Smoofie” is street slang used by certain elements of the criminal underworld

who traffic in the illicit sale of rohydra, a.k.a. “the herbal date-rape drug.”

The word “smoofie” refers to a cigarette or marijuana joint which has been

“laced” with rohydra. Those of the criminal ilk often refer to the pill form of

the date-rape drug rohypnol as a “roofie.” By melding the words “smokeable”

and “roofie,” we arrive at the term “smoofie.”

HOW DOES A “SMOOFIE” DIFFER FROM A “ROOFIE”?

A “roofie,” as I just stated and which you would have known had you been

paying attention, is the PILL form of the date-rape drug. Roofies are typically

dissolved into the victim’s drink when she isn’t looking. A “smoofie,” on the

other hand, is smoked. You smoke a smoofie. It is often slipped surreptitiously

into a tobacco cigarette or a marijuana joint and

then unknowingly inhaled by the victim.

HOW CAN I TELL IF SOMEONE HAS SLIPPED ME

A “SMOOFIE”?

It’s hard to tell, and that’s why this drug is so

dangerous. Rohydra is tasteless and odorless.

A tiny pinch of rohydra rolled into a joint of

dank skunk bud is enough to knock Shaquille

O’Neal on his ass for six hours.

IF THAT’S THE CASE, HOW DO I

PROTECT MYSELF FROM SMOKING

A “SMOOFIE”?

My simple advice would be, “Roll your

own.” Roll your own joints and smoke

your own cigarettes. That’s the easiest

anti-smoofie step you could take.

WHAT IF I ROLL MY OWN, BUT MY

DEALER LACED MY 40-SACK WITH

ROHYDRA BECAUSE HE’S BEEN ITCHIN’

TO GET IN MY PANTS?

I hadn’t considered that. Really, I

mean it—that’s a really good question.

ARE THERE ANY DANGEROUS

SIDE-EFFECTS THAT RESULT FROM

SMOKING A “SMOOFIE”?

Apart from getting raped, no.

Rohydra actually provides a strong,

pleasant buzz with little in the way of

reported hangovers or adverse health

effects. Smoked in high quantities, it

induces ecstatic hallucinations and

epic dreams in the user. It’s not

addictive, and it’s impossible to

overdose. The main drawback is that

the shit is so good, it flattens you on your back pretty much instantly after

you exhale the smoke, rendering it easier for people to rape you and stuff like

that, which, as I pointed out earlier, is wrong.

HOW DO WE EDUCATE PEOPLE ABOUT THE DANGERS OF “SMOOFIES”?

I’ve started an ad campaign whose slogan is “Don’t Be Goofy—Don’t Smoke

a Smoofie!” We’ve been hitting a lot of local high schools with a life-sized

costumed character called the Smoofasaurus, who lectures these teenaged

kids, who are at their most impressionable, tender, and firm-bodied age,

about the perils of smoofie-smoking.

HOW MANY RAPES HAVE OCCURRED FROM SMOOFIE-SMOKING?

The estimates

range anywhere

from a few dozen to

over 100,000,000.

We’ve just discovered

the smoofie,

so the data isn’t as precise as we’d like it to be. It’s too early to tell how many

forced sexual penetrations this drug has enabled. It’s hard to get my finger

firmly placed on exactly how many smoofie-rapes there have been. But I want

to make it clear that even one smoofie-rape is too many.

WHERE CAN I BUY

A“SMOOFIE”?

I don’t think that’s an

appropriate question.

ABOVE: Pictures of an herb called

rohydra, known as “the

herbal date-rape drug.”

Rohydra is the herbal analogue to

rohypnol, a pill which gained

fame as “the date-rape drug.”

Sex offenders and other thrillseekers

will often mix some

rohydra into a cigarette or joint of

marijuana, which is given to their

intended prey, who are rendered

unconscious within one minute of

smoking a “smoofie.”

Because of the herbal

date-rape drug,

women are cautioned

from accepting cigarettes

or joints from strange

men. What seems like an

innocent smoke might be

a “smoofie,” and it

might lead to trouble.Image

Drug-rape danger from cigarettes

guardian.co.uk, Wednesday 22 September 2004 17.38 BST

Women were warned about a new date-rape threat today after a Swansea nightclubber was apparently attacked after smoking a spiked cigarette.

The 30-year-old woman is believed to be the first British victim of “fry” cigarettes – tobacco dipped in embalming fluid – a practice which first came to attention in the US state of North Carolina in the late 1990s.

Graham Rhodes, chief executive of the Roofie Foundation, which campaigns on behalf of sex crime victims, warned women not to “accept a casual cigarette from anyone”. He said taking cigarettes offered on a night out should be considered as dangerous as accepting a drink from a stranger.

The Swansea woman was given the cigarette at a club last week and told police she began to feel “giddy and disorientated”. One of the two men she was talking to offered to take her home in a taxi but the next thing she remembered was waking up alone in a guest house, having been raped.

A 39-year-old man from Ebbw Vale, 50 miles from Swansea, was later arrested.

Dr Jim Campbell, a former Home Office forensic scientist who carries out work for the Roofie Foundation, said that on its own, a drugged cigarette was unlikely to be enough to allow a sex attack. However, a woman who was normally unlikely to accept a drink from a stranger would be more ready to take one while under the temporary influence of embalming fluid. The liquid is a mixture of formaldehyde and alcohol which has an almost instantaneous effect.

“You will feel giddy and may go into a stupor, but it will not last very long and will not incapacitate anyone,” Dr Campbell said. “It will not affect the memory either so it does not have many of the effects of a date-rape drug.”

But Rape Crisis Online http://www.rapecrisisonline.com/DateRapeDrugs.htm – a North Carolina website – suggests the dangers could be far greater. “Sometimes, the compound used in the fry cigarettes is PCP,” it says. “This drug adds an incredible level of danger to the user – it can kill.”

The website adds: “According to a 1998 study by the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, those who smoke fry cigarettes experience toxic psychosis, hallucinations, delusions, and sometimes, unconsciousness. Some men who were interviewed for the study said that “you can control a girl more than you can with Rohypnol”. Others stated that the drug heightens a woman’s sexual appetite. ”

“FRY”: Laced-Cigarettes are “Date-Rape” Hazard
http://www.crisisconnectioninc.org/sexualassault/fry.htm
Cigarettes soaked in embalming fluid have recently emerged as a form of date-rape drug. The cigarettes, commonly known as “fry,” are tobacco or marijuana cigarettes “laced” (dipped) in any drug, alcohol or solvent. Common street names for the treated cigarettes include “amp,” “water-water,” “drank,” “wetdaddy,” and “french fries.”

Embalming fluid is comprised of alcohol (methanol, ethyl alcohol or ethanol), formaldehyde, and solvents. Smoking this liquid on the filter tip or within the tobacco or marijuana will vaporize the substance and the smoker inhales the mixture into the lungs. It is absorbed almost instantly and it passes directly into the brain. The effect is instant. Formaldehyde is one of the “aldehyde” compounds that are responsible for the hangover after an alcohol binge.

Sometimes, the compound used in the “fry” is PCP, or Angel Dust. These drugs add an incredible level of danger to the user: they can kill. According to a 1998 study by the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, those who smoke “fry” may experience toxic psychosis, hallucinations, delusions, and unconsciousness.

Whatever substance is used to lace the cigarette, the cigarette will taste strange and have an unusual, pungent smell. Cigarettes laced with embalming fluid taste like rubbing alcohol and smell like gasoline when lit. These have the capacity to kill the user during initial intake.

A potential rapist may offer a “fry” to his targeted victim to induce giddiness or nausea, hoping the victim will accept a drink from him without thinking of the possible (intended) consequences. The perpetrator will have added another date-rape drug to her drink. Victims of sexual assault involving “fry” may have realized that the cigarette had been chemically altered but believed that it would just give them a high. They had no idea the perpetrators had given the “fry” to them to initiate the drugging process that ended with a rape.

Many southern states, including Texas, Arizona, and Florida, are reporting an increasing number of reports of “fry” use. The following information comes from an epidemiological report from the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse:
“Fry” is generally consumed in a small group of three to five people. As one participant said, “You don’t want to be alone when you smoke this.” Ten participants expressly stated that they usually drink alcohol when they smoke “fry.” According to a 17-year-old Hispanic female, drinking beer “increases the numbing sensation” that embalming fluid and marijuana provide. Other alcoholic beverages mentioned include Cisco (fortified wine); Alizé, the brand name for a bottled blend of passion fruit juice and cognac; and “thug passion” which is Alizé self-mixed with Hennessy cognac. Only African Americans mentioned Alizé or “thug passion.” Beer, usually in 20- or 40-ounce bottles, was the most frequently mentioned alcoholic beverage consumed with “fry,” regardless of race/ethnicity. Marijuana was used extensively with” fry.” Tobacco use was cited only as a substitute for marijuana due to lack of money

Negative effects of “fry” included feelings of panic, paranoia, disorientation, and losing consciousness: the primary reason participants indicated that “fry” should not be smoked alone. Smoking “fry” in groups did not prevent respondents from engaging in embarrassing behavior. Four participants reported taking off their clothes and running naked down the street. Intense anger was also cited: “I was hot, mad, aggravated, trying to hold back my frustration.” In response to this anger, respondents reported engaging in or witnessing serious physical confrontations. A Hispanic female reporting attacking her mother with a knife while on “fry”; unable to restrain her, the young woman’s family called the police. The girl awoke two days later in the Harris County Psychiatric Center, naked, restrained, and disoriented. She told her treatment providers that she had smoked embalming fluid. As neither she nor the treatment staff likely knew that the “fry” also contained PCP, they did not prescribe anti-psychotic drugs for her, and the young woman had to endure her detoxification without assistance from prescription medication.
What are the Short-Term Effects?

The most frequently mentioned short-term effect was blurred or impaired vision, a symptom that begins during the “high” and frequently endures into the next day. One participant stated that his depth perception was so impaired that he walked right into the path of an oncoming car. Apparently, he thought he was further away from traffic than he actually was. Another short-term effect is a headache the day following “fry” consumption. According to participants, the headache is worse than one from a hangover, and more difficult to overcome. One participant of the study laughingly reported that, “After all, I know why they call it “fry”, it fries your brain!”; indeed. Increased forgetfulness the following day also was cited. This short-term memory loss was described as even more extensive than after smoking marijuana alone. Vomiting, depression, and facial/bodily edema also were reported.
What are the Long-Term Effects?

The long-term effects of smoking “fry” are not pretty. Participants recalled seeing long-term “fry” smokers who muttered to themselves as they walked in bizarre fashion. Long term “fry” users discontinue personal grooming, not caring that they are dirty and disheveled. Five adolescents reported that smoking “fry” causes brain damage; two knew friends who were in mental health/mental retardation facilities because they had overdosed on “fry.” Two additional long-term effects were that the embalming fluid “accumulates in the spinal cord” and makes the “back break down.” “Fry” use can also “stop the maturation process” in those users who are not yet physically matured. Additional effects listed by the State of Connecticut include high fever, heart attacks, high blood pressure, kidney damage, destruction of muscle tissue, brain damage, coma, convulsions, coughing, pneumonia, anorexia, and death; regardless of the users age.
None of the study participants believed that they would suffer from any of these side effects even though many of them personally knew others who had.

    mkultra Goals

    The Agency poured millions of dollars into studies examining methods of influencing and controlling the mind, and of enhancing their ability to extract information from resistant subjects during interrogation.[24][25]

    Some historians have asserted that creating a “Manchurian Candidate” subject through “mind control” techniques was a goal of MKUltra and related CIA projects.[26] Alfred McCoy has claimed that the CIA attempted to focus media attention on these sorts of “ridiculous” programs, so that the public would not look at the primary goal of the research, which was developing effective methods of torture and interrogation. Such authors cite as one example that the CIA’s KUBARK interrogation manual refers to “studies at McGill University”, and that most of the techniques recommended in KUBARK are exactly those that researcher Donald Ewen Cameron used on his test subjects (sensory deprivation, drugs, isolation, etc.).[24]

    One 1955 MKUltra document gives an indication of the size and range of the effort; this document refers to the study of an assortment of mind-altering substances described as follows:[27]

    Substances which will promote illogical thinking and impulsiveness to the point where the recipient would be discredited in public.
    Substances which increase the efficiency of mentation and perception.
    Materials which will cause the victim to age faster/slower in maturity.
    Materials which will promote the intoxicating effect of alcohol.
    Materials which will produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way so that they may be used for malingering, etc.
    Materials which will cause temporary/permanent brain damage and loss of memory.
    Substances which will enhance the ability of individuals to withstand privation, torture and coercion during interrogation and so-called “brain-washing”.
    Materials and physical methods which will produce amnesia for events preceding and during their use.
    Physical methods of producing shock and confusion over extended periods of time and capable of surreptitious use.
    Substances which produce physical disablement such as paralysis of the legs, acute anemia, etc.
    Substances which will produce a chemical that can cause blisters.
    Substances which alter personality structure in such a way that the tendency of the recipient to become dependent upon another person is enhanced.
    A material which will cause mental confusion of such a type that the individual under its influence will find it difficult to maintain a fabrication under questioning.
    Substances which will lower the ambition and general working efficiency of men when administered in undetectable amounts.
    Substances which promote weakness or distortion of the eyesight or hearing faculties, preferably without permanent effects.
    A knockout pill which can surreptitiously be administered in drinks, food, cigarettes, as an aerosol, etc., which will be safe to use, provide a maximum of amnesia, and be suitable for use by agent types on an ad hoc basis.
    A material which can be surreptitiously administered by the above routes and which in very small amounts will make it impossible for a person to perform physical activity.
