Anesthetics of Dissociation
The structure of the benzomorfanes and those of the morphine type substances is very similar to the one of the natural opiates; it looks too complex to be of any interest to the illegal manufacturers, but their synthesis is not a problem for the modern pharmaceutics industry. Apart from some compounds which possess the typical features of the classical opiates, in this group there may also be found some strong hallucinogens.
Phenazocine is used as a typical analgesic in some countries; it possess all the characteristics of the morphine, but it is 3 times stronger
Ciklozocine is about 40 times stronger than the morphine, but in doses of about 1mg it causes a strong psychotic disorder, which makes its medical usage almost impossible.
Pentazocine (Talvin, Lexir, Fortral) is the only benzomorfanic substance that is widely spread in the medicine as well as in other areas. What is specific about it is that its psychomimethical features are less expressed, but those who suffer, usually mark the appearance of uncontrollable, running thoughts.
Another achievement of the illegal pharmacologists in America is the so-called cocktail “Blue Velvet”, which is thought to cause euphoria, similar to the one that is caused when a person takes in cocaine. Those who wanted to try had to smash a tablet of pentazocine and one tablet of tripelenamine in a glass of water and then they had to inject the mixture intravenally. The consequences were horrible; most of those who tasted this cocktail are now already dead and it has lost its popularity in the last few years.
