Midazolam!

Otherwise known as Hypnovel or Versed, Midazolam! [exclamation point added for emphasis - should be said like Shazam!] is now being used in some places by law enforcement to subdue particularly unruly "clients".

I have the same issue with this as Shoeboxblog, where I swiped this quote from:

Because of a temporary ban on Tasers, metro police in Memphis have begun shooting hostile suspects with tranquillizer darts. As a result, hundreds of drug addicts across the city have begun throwing themselves at the police.

[Note: It is not reported that the officers are using tranquilizer darts, but that shots are being administered by trained EMS professionals.]

Note to Self: Feeling particularly edgy? Having trouble falling asleep? Simply assault a TN policeman! After healing from the multiple bruises on your face from hitting the pavement and once the lovely drug hangover has passed, you'll find yourself feeling particularly rested... in a prison cell... with your new friend Bubba.

you know how in some states,law enforcement officials need to know what it feels like to be tased before you can use a taser. So they tase each other.

They should Use that tactics with the Tranqs..

"Clients"? Why not just call them Members?

Malo zadim!

I don't know what zadim means, but malo means bad. What are you trying to brainwash into our heads?

SM - Then maybe I could keep some at home to tranquilize him when I'm trying to sleep... dang night shift.

Livin - "Members for life" generally. I don't remember what I was trying to make you think now... something about spoiled fruit maybe?

Love the Note to Self. "Feeling particularly edgy...?" ROTFL!

It's so nice of the junkies to enlist as human targets.

What if someone said they didn't like the "Note to Self" or even worse?

MJ said...

K - Glad I could give you a chuckle...

Evyl - I know, right? Very giving of them... I'm thinking they should take this opportunity to use them as guinea pigs for other drugs...

Livin - What would be worse?
