The Illinois heroin epidemic is being challenged with a wave of designer synthetic narcotic drugs. With strange chemical names such as “U-4,” and “W-18,” or a street slang name of “Badger Repellent,” these next generation narcotics are up to 10,000 times more potent than morphine! Other common street drugs of abuse such as cocaine and marijuana are also being challenged by designer synthetics including alpha-PVP (Blue Aqua) and 5F-ADB (Spice). This one day seminar will update professionals in the latest street drugs of abuse in Illinois and innovative community responses to this latest drug challenge. Current Illinois drug abuse data will be presented from the Illinois Department of Health and drug seizure data from the Illinois State Police forensic labs.
Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Define the term “designer synthetic drug” in the context of street drug abuse.
- List the top designer synthetic narcotic, stimulant, depressant and cannabinoid activating drugs in Illinois.
- Discuss the reason for a spike in the unregulated narcotic drug Kratom.
- Review changes to the Illinois Medical Marijuana Law and its impact on community substance abuse.
