Es Legal El Popper En Colombia

If popper is compared to another psychoactive substance and was legal in the country, the boxer or popularly known as sacol would be. “While retaining the proportions, popper or substance previously used to clean the heads of certain electronic devices, it would be the same as shoe glue,” the investigative unit said. Although in Colombia popper is considered a psychoactive substance and not a narcotic, that is, it is not necessarily addictive and it is also freely marketed, they have already banned its marketing in Spain because they have found that it affects public health. In addition, they have started to increase their ban in the UK since 2016, although it remains legal until now. “Those who consume the most poppers are teenagers aged 15 to 20 and young people aged 20 to 24,” said Pava, who pointed out that the effects of this drug included tachycardia, increased pressure, nausea, vomiting and red skin. In addition to a change in oxygen transport. In fact, as far as we can deduce, the legislation is intended to prohibit the given use and not the product as such. For this reason, as you have surely noticed, each bottle of popper indicates a different use: leather cleaner, ambient perfume, liquid incense, among others; as well as the warning not to inhale. Since not all countries are prohibited from selling and consuming them, this is one of the ways they “cheat” the law and give them a legal connotation. Today, there is really no law that clearly states the legality of poppers. It is known that what is condemned and punished is the use of nitrites, which are the composition of poppers and in which amyl butyl nitrite, propyl nitrite, pentyl nitrite and hexyl nitrite are found.

These nitrites come from the alkyl and, as we have already seen, can give various applications, from medical to mundane. Augusto Pérez of the New Directions Foundation, which just published the book Transitions in drug consumption in Colombia, said that in his opinion, popper consumption is not skyrocketing. People are not jealous of it, although it can consume several times in one night, with its respective dangers. Lourdes Herrera, deputy director of youth management for the district, said there was no specific prevention campaign against popper. Popper is banned in Spain because it is considered harmful to health. Ecstasy and LSD are other drugs prosecuted by the National Police through the Directorate of Drug Prevention, which has detected more than 30 drugs on the illicit market through seizures and operations. When the police seize someone`s popper, they grab it and make it available to the investigative agency, “but since it`s a substance that is not controlled per se, they give it freedom. For example, we seize them during raids because they are known to use them for sale, not for the subject matter produced, but for consumption or for stimulant.

“The substance has a big problem and that is that when inhaled, it creates a pleasant sensation that appears very quickly and lasts very little time, “a substance capable of creating this type of situation in the body can be addictive. What happens to the popper is a psychological rather than biological addiction, because the person must constantly consume a large amount to develop it, but quickly begins to generate habits,” said Marín Cárdenas. According to the Ministry of Justice, more than 120,000 minors used popper as a drug during the school years, with Antioquia, Caldas and Risaralda being the regions of the country where this phenomenon is most common. Jorge Alonso Marín Cárdenas, president of the Colombian Association of Chemical Toxicology, said that the popper contains nitrates and nitrites, “all the components used for this substance produce a similar effect and what they do is that they produce vasodilation, that is, the vessels of the organism of the veins and arteries can dilate and become part of the smooth muscle. For example, the sphincter expands and so they use it. Historically, this product has been used in nightclubs across the United States since 1970 and has been well received by the LGBTI community. Clinical toxicologist Hugo Gallego explained that popper is a trade name for amyl nitrite that became popular in the 60s, first as a volatile liquid for cleaning high-definition sound devices, and then as a sphincter vasodilator for sexual intercourse. Poppers belong to the group of inhalants.

They usually consist of amyl nitrites, butyl or isobutyl. These are colorless and odorless liquids sold in small jars for inhalation. Amyl nitrate is a very volatile and inflammatory substance and should never be ingested as it can be fatal. Further north of the continent, poppers can be marketed in the United States as long as they are not inhaled. Only the prescription of a doctor gives it a legal use. Canada, for its part, authorizes the manufacture of such substances, but prohibits their sale and consumption, and imposes severe penalties such as fines and even jail time. In the case of Spain and Latin America, the sale of poppers is prohibited, but it is not entirely clear whether their consumption is also prohibited. For this reason, it is important that you choose safe and quality places to preserve your beloved boats. As for its constituents, isobutyl nitrite corresponds to a group of nitrites colloquially called “poppers”.

“These are substances formed by nitrous acid esters and the combination of alcohol, sodium nitrite and sulfuric acid. The most common types are amyl nitrite, isobutyl nitrite and butyl nitrite,” the industrial chemist said, claiming that organic nitrites, or nitrates, mainly affect the autonomic nervous system. “Wherever you get the popper. You can feel that his face is full of blood, euphoria and warmth. To have sex, you inhale it. But it gives me a headache. Although the substance is sold in places of vice, the main points of sale are sex shops, as the popper is not considered a narcotic by the authorities. Popper, the substance that has a 19-year-old brain dead at Kennedy Hospital, is not only not banned, but it`s also very easy to get him into town. As mentioned above, the law is not the same in all countries, so in some cases popper is legal (both its consumption and sale), and in others where its marketing is not allowed.

The young man Major Guio is talking about is Juan Carlos Rincón, a 19-year-old student with a history of epilepsy who was declared brain dead for inhaling Popper. There are several possible reasons for the origin of these temporary bans. The most likely is undoubtedly the fear of health authorities of the occurrence of serious side effects. However, there is no physical dependence on popper consumption. In addition, no studies show the harmfulness of the nitrites that make up popper (with the exception of butyl nitrite, which would be carcinogenic, which explains its ban). Argentine law is clear and unambiguous: the use, marketing, import and export of poppers is prohibited because they believe that the substance ethyl chloride is one of its components. However, the anesthetic effect of ethyl chloride is not present in poppers, which leads us to wonder if this is a valid reason for its ban. Popper is considered a psychoactive inhalant and last year there were 88 cases of this type of poisoning, according to the district health department, although it is not clear how many of them came from popper. Although cities and departments such as Cali, Risaralda and Antioquia are seeing an increase in the use of this substance, no studies on popper are known in Bogotá. The latest seizure took place on February 26 in Barrio Antioquia, where the CTI searched the home of a dealer and found 65 kilos of marijuana and 100 bottles of poppers. With regard to provisions other than Act No. 30 of 1986 and the Penal Code of 2000, Álvarez Álvarez recommended reference to the United Nations Convention.

In order to comply with the country`s regulations, it is important to know article 376 of the Criminal Code, which states: “Anyone who enters, transports, transports, stores, manufactures, sells, offers, acquires, finances or supplies narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances or synthetic drugs referred to in Schedule One without the authorization of a competent authority: two, three and four of the United Nations Convention on Psychotropic Substances shall be punished by imprisonment from 128 to 360 months and a fine of 1,334 to 50,000 statutory monthly minimum wages.
