“Non-addictive.”

We’ve all heard that one before.

Great if true, but I’m skeptical.

Since I’m allergic to morphine, nice to know. Hopefully I won’t be in any need of the stuff.

Does it have euphoric side effects? Does it cause constipation? Is it toxic in usage or moderate abuse?

If answers to the above are Yes, No, and No, coupled with non-addictive properties, it sounds like a soma candidate.

Heroin was synthesized to try to find a non addicting version of morphine.

Kinda backfired...

Apparently being allergic to morphine is pretty common. My dad was given some at the ER once and he had severe chest pains from it. He thought he was having a heart attack.

But it’s Russian, so the “Stuck in the Cold War” warriors and the “Pissed off that they aren’t the Soviets anymore” Progressives auto-hate it.

One of the reasons people get addicted to pain killers is that the best ones create a sense of euphoria. If this drug does the same I can’t imagine it being non-addictive.

Re #10:

I’m on the other end of the spectrum from your Father. I love morphine. If it was legal I’d be an addict. I have no doubt of this.

For me, I get nauseated then a little chest burn. Nothing for pain.

I recall when cocaine use was increasing in the late 1970’s.

Many stories said the same thing: non-addictive, benign drug.

Hard to tell how it might be abused until it has been in wide use for a while.
