Heroin vaccine blocks lethal overdose — ScienceDaily

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have achieved a major milestone toward designing a safe and effective vaccine to both treat heroin addiction and block lethal overdose of the drug.

The first formulation of the heroin vaccine was developed in 2013 by a team led by Kim D. Janda, PhD, the Ely R. Callaway Jr. Professor of Chemistry and member of the Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology at TSRI. It has been shown to be effective — and safe — in both mouse and non-human primate models.

Stormy Daniels arrested while performing at Ohio strip club – CBS News

Michael Avenatti tweeted that it happened at a strip club; he says she’s charged with “allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non-sexual manner”

@MichaelAvenatti

Just rcvd word that my client @StormyDaniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio whole performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs. This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges.

Michael Avenatti

@MichaelAvenatti

She was arrested for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non sexual manner! Are you kidding me? They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities!!!

Michael Avenatti

@MichaelAvenatti

We expect her to be released on bail shortly. We also expect that she will be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing “touching.” We will vehemently contest all charges.

Franklin County Municipal Court documents show Daniels was arrested by Columbus police and is scheduled for arraignment Friday morning.

 

Avenatti told the AP the arrest was “a set up.” He told WBNS he has “reason to believe it was politically motivated. There’s no question these officers were undercover at that strip club. They knew my client would be performing there and I find this to be a complete waste of resources.”
