Buprenorphine C29H41NO4, Synthetic substance under international control according to the UN Convention on Psychotropic Substances 1971, Schedule III. Molecular weight: 467.7. Percentage of anhydrous base: 100. Buprenorphine is a mixed agonist/antagonist which can be used in substitution treatment. It has been used extensively in many countries for the short-term treatment of moderate to severe pain. The mixed opioid-action/blocking-action appears to make it safe in overdose and possibly less likely to be diverted than pure opioids. It may also provide an easier withdrawal phase, and due to a longer action. May allow for alternate day dosing. It is apparent from the research conducted to date that bu-prenorphine is at least as effective as metha-done as a maintenance agent.

Burdock Colloquial term for methadone. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Established in 1972 as a separate agency within the US. Treasury Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) administers and enforces the federal laws relating to firearms and explosives, and to alcohol and tobacco products. Previously, these responsibilities were under the aegis of the Internal Revenue Service. Since the passage of the federal Anti-Arson Act in 1982, the ATF has also dealt with arson-for-profit activities. The bureau currently operates on an annual budget of about $335 million, and employs some 4,100 people. The ATF is divided into two sections. One, called Regulatory Enforcement, is charged with monitoring trade-practice violations, issuing permits and licenses, and determining and collecting taxes on legal alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. The other, called Criminal Enforcement, is charged with suppressing illegal trafficking in the named products, as well as investigating tax evasion and arson for profit. Other ATF tasks include assisting federal, state, and local revenue and law-enforcement agencies; inspecting and regulating storage facilities for explosives; and maintaining records so that firearms and explosives used to commit crimes can be traced. The ATF came under public scrutiny for its flawed raid on the compound of the Branch Davidians in Waco, Tex., on Feb. 28, 1993. Not only were four ATF agents and six cult members killed in the initial raid, but the ensuing 51-day siege (conducted by the FBI) resulted in disaster. A Treasury Department report was highly critical. Buren Secbutabarbital. Burese Colloquial term for cocaine. Burg German colloquial term for 500 mark bill.
Burgesic Drug containing more than one active substance whereof one under international control: Amobarbital. Burgodin Bezitramide. Burgundy wine Wines of the region of Burgundy in east-central France. Beginning with the Chablis district, the region's vineyards include those of the Côtes de Nuits just south of Dijon, the area around Beaune and Mâcon, and end in Beaujolais just north of Lyons. Burgundy is a region of varied wines, rather than of a type. Its white wines are usually dry, its reds velvety and full-bodied. Burgundy-type wines made in other countries such as Italy, Spain, Chile, or in California imitate, with varying success, some wine of the region of Burgundy.
The best Burgundy wines are codified under the Appellations d'Origine. The use of the names of the districts, as Côtes de Beaune, is controlled, as well as the names of communes, villages, and individual vineyards. The last produce the finest wines; wines bottled on their properties are known as estate-bottled, the counterpart of château-bottled in Bordeaux.

Burroughs, William S(eward) (19141998), American writer, painter, and experimental artist. He was born in Saint Louis, Missouri, and graduated from Harvard University in 1936. He also briefly attended medical school in Vienna, Austria, and graduate school in anthropology at Harvard. Burroughs took a series of odd jobs as private detective, vemin-hunter and briefly served in the United States Army before set tling in New York City in 1943. In 1944 he met Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, with whom he helped found the Beat Generation literary movement. In New York Burroughs also met Joan Vollmer Adams, who became his common-law wife. They had one son, William S. Burroughs, Jr., also a writer. Burroughs's friendships, drug experimentation, and the accidental shooting death of his wife in 1951 shaped his writing style. Starting in 1949, he led an expatriate artist's life in Mexico City, Mexico; Tangier, Morocco; Paris, France; and London, England, returning to New York in 1974. He settled in Lawrence, Kansas, in 1981.
Burroughs's literary experimentation is apparent in his novels, which combine visionary intensity, strong social satire, and the use of montage, collage, and improvisation. He was the inventor of the routine (a satirical fantasy the author composes through improvisation), the cutup (a collage technique applied to prose writing in which the writer literally cuts up and recombines text), and pop mythologies (mythologies the writer creates using material from popular culture). His novels include Junky (1953), Naked Lunch (1959), The Soft Machine (1961), The Ticket That Exploded (1962), Nova Express (1964), The Wild Boys (1971), Exterminator (1973), Port of Saints (1975), Cities of the Red Night (1981), Place of Dead Roads (1984), Queer (1985), and The Western Lands (1987).
Naked Lunch, based on Burroughs's experience as a drug addict, is acknowledged to be a seminal work. The novel's sexually explicit language and evocation of grotesque images resulted in the book being banned in Boston, Massachusetts. The ban was lifted after a trial in 1965 and 1966 that effectively ended censorship of literature in the United States. Burroughs also wrote a number of short experimental prose pieces, short stories, short novels, and essays. He collaborated with other writers and artists on literary, film, musical, and multimedia works. In the 1980s he also became a painter, and exhibited widely. Burroughs deep knowledge of drug dependence has been important for his writings. His descriptions of extreme violent homosexuality made him highly controversial. Buru Betel pepper. Buschmanntee Khat.
