Lorillard Company Oldest tobacco manufacturer in the United States, dating to 1760, when a French immigrant, Pierre Lorillard, opened a "manufactory" in New York City. It originally made pipe tobacco, cigars, plug chewing tobacco, and snuff. Tobacco for "roll-your-own" cigarettes was introduced in 1860, and cigarettes were being manufactured by the 1880s. From the 1890s to 1911 it was a part of the giant tobacco trust, the American Tobacco Company (see American Brands, Inc.), but once more became independent when the U.S. Court of Appeals dissolved the trust. Lorillard's chief cigarettes have been Old Gold (introduced in 1926) and Kent (1952). The company, now called Lorillard, is a division of the conglomerate Loews Corporation and is headquartered in New York City. Lorimer method Ultra Rapid Opiate Detoxification. Lorinon Diazepam.

LSD C20H25N3O. Derivate of lysergic acid, under international control according to the UN Convention on Psychotropic Substances 1971, Schedule I. Molecular weight: 323. 4. Percentage of anhydrous base: 100. In international treaties named lysergide but usually known as LSD short for Lysergic acid di-ethylamide.
A crystalline compound, derived from lysergic acid and used as a powerful hallucenogenic drug. It can be derived from the ergot alkaloids (as ergotamine and ergonovine, principal constituents of ergot, the grain deformity and toxic infectant of flour caused by the fungus of grasses, Claviceps purpurea). LSD is prepared in the laboratory by chemical synthesis. Its basic chemical structure is similar to that of the ergot alkaloids. LSD also is related structurally to several other drugs (e.g., bufotenine, psilocybine, harmine, and ibogaine); all can block the action of serotonin (the indole amine transmitter of nerve impulses) in brain tissue. LSD was discoverd 1938 by the Swiss chemist Albert Hoffman. LSD produces marked deviations from normal behaviour, which probably are consequences of its ability to inhibit the action of serotonin, though the mechanism of the drug remains uncertain. Because of that ability LSD was used experimentally in medicine as a psychotomimetic agent to induce mental states that were believed to resemble those of actual psychotic diseases (primarily the schizophrenias).
After administration, LSD can be absorbed readily from any mucosal surface, even from the ear, and acts within 30 to 60 minutes. Its effects usually last for 8 to 10 hours; occasionally some effects persist for several days. Two serious side effects are prolongation of and transient reappearance of the psychotic reaction.
Since LSD is not an approved drug, its therapeutic applications are regarded as experimental. In the 1960s LSD was proposed for use in the treatment of neuroses, especially for patients who were recalcitrant to more conventional psychotherapeutic procedures. LSD also was tried as a treatment for alcoholism and was used to reduce the suffering of terminally ill cancer patients. The drug also was studied as an adjunct in the treatment of narcotic addiction, of autistic children, and of the so-called psychopathic personality. None of these claims were substantiated by the early 1990s, and researchers found no clinical value in the use of LSD.
Pure LSD is a white, odorless crystalline pow der that is soluble in water. Because an effective dose of the pure drug is almost invisible, it is mixed with other substances, such as sugar, and packaged in capsules, tablets, or solutions, or spotted on to gelatin sheets or pieces of blotting paper.
LSD is usually taken orally, but is sometimes inhaled or injected. Short-term effects appear soon after a single dose and disappear within a few hours or days. Appearing first are physical effects including: numbness; muscle weakness and trembling; rapid reflexes; increased blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature; impaired motor skills and coordination; dilated pupils; nausea; and, occasionally, seizures. Dramatic changes in perception, thought, and mood occur shortly after the physical effects. These may include:
vivid, usually visual, "pseudohallucinations" that the user is aware are not real distorted perceptions of: time (minutes seem like hours); distance (hazardous if operating motor vehicles or standing near balcony edges); gravity (sensations of floating or being pressed down); the space between oneself and one's environment (for some, a feeling of oneness with the universe, for others, a feeling of terror)
fusion of the senses (music is "seen," colors "heard")
diminished control over thought processes, resulting in recent or long-forgotten memories resurfacing and blending with current experience, or in insignificant thoughts or objects taking on deep meaning feelings of a mystical, religious, or cosmic nature (generally the most desired effect).
But many users experience unpleasant reactions to LSD. Fear, anxiety, and depression may occur, even with experienced users who have had no prior adverse reactions. Calling these reactions "bad trips," users feel that they are losing their identity, disintegrating into nothingness, and that there is no reality. Pseudo-hallucinations give way to terrifying true hallucinations, sometimes resulting in violence, homicide, or suicide. In some cases, this psychotic state lasts several days or even longer. Because adverse effects are particularly common among new users, early LSD trips are usually taken in the company of experienced users who can often help curb acute panic reactions.
No deaths resulting exclusively from LSD overdose have been reported. Cases of suicide, however, have occurred during or following LSD intoxication. Other results of violent or hazardous behavior include accidental (some times bizarre) fatalities, homicides, and self-mutilations.
Long-term effects appear after repeated use over a lengthy period, or some time after the short-term effects of a single dose have worn off. "Flashbacks" (unpredictable, spontaneous recurrences of the original LSD experience without the user's taking the drug again) can occur weeks, months, or even up to a year after the last encounter with the drug. Typically, flashbacks last only a few minutes or less and are usually visual images ranging from formless colors to frightening hallucinations. The cause of the flashbacks is unknown, but they frequently occur after an LSD user smokes cannabis.
Chronic LSD use may result in prolonged depression and anxiety.
There appears to be a higher risk of spontaneous abortion and congenital abnormalities in babies born to women who regularly used LSD during pregnancy. But in almost all such cases reviewed, the mothers had also taken other drugs during pregnancy; it is thus difficult to determine how much each drug contributed to the problems. Tolerance to LSD's hallucinatory and physical effects develops rapidly, making larger amounts of the drug necessary to produce the same effects. Often, within a few days of consecutive daily doses, no amount of the drug will produce the desired effects. After several days of abstinence, however, both the hallucinatory effects and the effects on blood pressure and reflexes are again felt. A person who has built up tolerance to LSD will also be resistant to the effects of the other, less potent hallucinogens, such as psilocybine and mescaline. This phenomenon is called cross-tolerance.
There is no physical dependence on LSD after continuous use, for there are no withdrawal symptoms after the drug is discontinued. Some regular LSD users become psychologically dependent on the drug, and the need to keep taking it becomes a compulsion. They represent a small minority of LSD users, however, and in street language are called "acid heads" or "acid freaks". LSD 25 (+)-Lysergide. LSD downer Colloquial term for LSD user.
