And we're up to at least 4 firearms incidents associated with Hernandez from 17 to 23... that we know of.
It says it was used as an anesthetic until 1965, no?
Playoffs, you're absolutely right.
Forgot all about Senylan. In the mid 70's, I would be called on to perform occasional reconstructive surgery on some of the injured New Orleans Zoo animals. It was used as a human dissociative anesthetic like, if you have heard of, a drug called Ketamine that is still used today. But Senylan was strictly a veterinary
anesthetic. The way it worked, like Ketamine, was that patients felt the pain, but forgot having pain a second after they experienced it. This went on for as long as the surgery lasted. It did not have any use in large medical center environments except for research. Actually after its use was discontinued because of horrendous post anesthetic effects on animals beyond its unique anesthesia, it was actually produced by the manufacturer in small quantities, sort of under the radar of the FDA, for certain limited institutions and research purposes, though somehow finding it's way mostly into the hands of the non-medical, non-veterinary population for recreational use. The FDA finally caught wind of the latter and put an end to the manufacturer's production, I believe, somewhere near the end of the 70's. The street formulas took over after that.
