Providing straightforward information pertaining to drugs, drug use & drug policy. The Grey Pages promotes drug-related literacy and advocates a system of viable and tolerant drug policies. This is my personal collection of commentaries, essays, tid-bits, and other such writings on everything ranging from drug use, drug policy and drug-myths, to drug-science, addiction, human behavior, and the workings of the human brain. I started this blog with a particular focus on opioids, and over the past year have found my interest gravitate toward the intriguing, ever-changing world of designer intoxicants (i.e. "research chemicals" or "designer drugs").

One Can Not Under-Emphasize...

Too much Suboxone can very well cause a fatal overdose in a non-tolerant subject. Never give the drug to friends, especially those who are not habitual narcotic users.

Under typical circumstances, buprenorphine is 30x more potent than morphine in low (sub-ceiling) doses. Clinical studies in post operative patients found that parenteral buprenorphine causes the same  degree of respiratory depression as morphine in equianalgesic doses (if not slightly more so).
