Army Shopping For BZ

As of October 10, 2010 it would appear that the US Army has once again taken an interest in a very nasty hallucinogenic drug.

US Army Solicitation Number: W911S611T0001

I, personally, have to wonder just what they have in mind. I remember reading that the Army still had stockpiles of artillery shells loaded with this (lol) "incapacitating agent" as late as the 1990's.

Iraq's stockpile of munitions containing Agent 15 (<----WARNING: Links to the CIA library) were seized, and there's credible reports that the Serbs used BZ munitions in that Yugoslav mess that Clinton helped create. So, there's a lot of the stuff around in military stockpiles.

They're only seeking to purchase 90 grams of the stuff (it is available and is used in medical research to map certain brain functions), which screams "test".

90 grams goes along ways since a dose of between 500 to 1000 MICRO grams is enough to render a human useless for as much as two days, and can affect their perceptions for as much as SIX days.

General McChrystal, "Here's your coffee, Mr. Obama."

BZ, QNB, 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate, or more accurately 1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-3-yl α-hydroxy-α-phenylbenzeneacetate, is one hell of a ride. LSD ain't got nothing on this MoFo. Rumor has it BZ's trip can only be outdone by the fabled NASA "Space Drug" JB118 (possibly N-Ethyl-3-piperidyl benzilate or N-Methyl-3-piperidyl benzilate).

The interesting thing is BZ is stable in most solvents, including DMSO, and is not largely affected by air, water, heat, light, and is persistent in soil and on surfaces. Depending on the initial concentration of the drug in an area, people can pick up an effective dose for two to three months just by physically coming in contact with it (exposed skin). It will break down in time, with a half life of approximately four weeks.

Talk about a contact high!

You can eat it, breathe it, or touch it and get high. It is odorless, colorless when dispersed, and nearly tasteless. It is non-irritating to the mucous membranes and exposed skin. Onset of the effects can take as little as thirty minutes or as long as 24 hours from what I have read. Apparently, if it is contact with skin exposure only, it can take up to 36 hours for onset of effects.

That fact will make it extremely difficult to track down exactly where the exposure took place if a number of people are exposed (say in a subway terminal). I'm not paranoid, the Army wanted to do this back in the 1950's.

False flag anyone?

I found this: QNB Synthesis Method. I don't know if it works. I ain't gonna try it.

While looking up possible treatments for exposure, I ran across this:

CBRNE - Incapacitating Agents, 3-Quinuclidinyl Benzilate

It was updated in March of this year. In Virginia.

Maybe I'm paranoid, but that seems weird to me since it isn't a common drug. Of all the things to update, with all the talk of "dirty bombs" and similar scare mongering, why post updated info on a relatively obscure hallucinogen?

"This announcement constitutes the only solicitation requested and a written solicitation will not be issued."

Makes it sound like they have registered salesmen lined up to knock on their door and offer them this substance. Apparently for no money, since they don't have the funding for it yet. Not that they could just take a little from their stockpiles or anything like that.

I feel so safe knowing substances like this exist, and are in the capable, trustworthy hands of the government.
