Whippets, Whip-Its, or Laughing Gas: The Drug UT Students are Inhaling
11/13/2020 9:00am

By Sydney Rhodes David places a small, silver cartridge into a black, metal device which looks like a whipped cream dispenser, otherwise known as a cracker. He inserts the cartridge into the bottom of the cracker, picks up a green, latex balloon and begins to fill the balloon with the gas from the nozzle of the cracker. Once the balloon is about the size of a softball, he presses his lips against the opening of the balloon and slowly begins to inhale the gas. David then sinks into the leather couch in his living room and drops his head back, enjoying his 30-second high. What is David inhaling Nitrous oxide more commonly known as taking a whippet or whip-it. Nitrous oxide is typically used in medical practices for sedation and pain relief, known as laughing gas. However, some students at The University of Tampa are inhaling the substance for a high. When I take whippets, it feels like a headrush, said David, a 21-year-old UT senior who requested to remain anonymous under the name David. Feels like the world stops in that moment. In a survey conducted of 117 UT students, 47 of students said they have heard of ...

Opioid Epidemic Falls in the Hands of Purdue Pharma
11/13/2020 9:00am

By Mallory Culhane Purdue Pharma, a pharmaceutical company that manufactures pain medications such as OxyContin, has pleaded guilty to several federal criminal charges and faces $8 billion in penalties for their role in the U.S. opioid epidemic. The settlement was announced by the Justice Department on Wednesday, Oct. 21. Purdue Pharma is pleading guilty to three charges, including conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and violating federal anti-kickback laws, which prohibit the payment or reward of patient referrals to generate business. The company has agreed to pay a $3.5 billion fine for their actions and forfeit $2 billion of past profit. The company is also responsible for paying $2.8 billion in civil liability. Purdue, which filed for bankruptcy last year, doesnt have $8 billion on hand to pay, so as a result of the settlement, the company will be dissolved. Its current assets will be used to create a public benefit company governed by a trust, focused on public needs and interests rather than profit, and produce life-saving overdose rescue medications at a more accessible, discounted price. Any money made from this will go towards the $8 billion Purdue has agreed to pay, which will then go towards fighting the opioid ...

A Day in the Life: The Illegal Hustle of Students
11/13/2020 9:00am

By Emma Friedman & Sydney Rhodes Ive actually never been caught selling, but I have been caught with my own marijuana in possession, said an anonymous sophomore at The University of Tampa who prefers to go by the name Jack. Since beginning his drug dealing hustle during his sophomore year of high school, Jack has never been caught in the act, though he has had some close calls. After leaving a party six months ago, Jack was stopped by police. The police officers had just infiltrated the party and students were leaving the property. They noticed Jacks backpack and told him to open it. They found two grams of marijuana and I got a small charge and had to go to court and everything, said Jack. Luckily, my backpack didnt have all the drugs in it that I started with that night. I sold like three grams of cocaine, two grams of THC concentrate and like four Xanaxs that night. So, I played it off like the two grams of marijuana was just for my own use. Jack appears to be an average college student. He attends class, does homework, and spends time with his friends, like many others. In ...
