Yesterday authorities released the dramatic Demi Moore 911 call made from the star’s L.A. residence Monday night involving convulsions, a fever, semi-consciousness, breathing difficulties and smoking “something similar to incense.” The TMZ audio clearly offers some insight.
At one point during the Beverly Hills call, mainly over directions, the caller requested an ambulance. From the background came another voice reminding of the extent in emergency.
“Right now. Yeah. Like right now. This is an emergency.”
The dispatcher tries to establish more information. The caller adds Moore revelations.
“She smoked something. It’s not marijuana but it’s similar to incense.” The caller repeated some of the words in an obviously shaken up tone. The dispatcher had to repeat questions just to get the caller on the same page.
Demi was “barely” semi-conscious, convulsing and shaking. Sad visual for a five-star actress of her status. The frantic yet collected call passed through hands as the dispatcher kept the caller(s) on-line.
Smoking something like incense? Like K2 Spice? Rumors are surfacing Ru.
Too much K2 can cause problems, even seizures. Live Science details the origins and how the ’90s creation works with some side noted effects. Hallucinations, vomiting and agitation are just three to name. Pot-posterous way to catch a buzz. K2 began selling as incense and potpourri since 2006. And it very well could be the “similar to incense” on Demi Moore’s 911 call. Moore fitting than the whip-its (or whippets) take.
So where did the nitrous oxide leak come from?
A source told TMZ that a witness shared with one of the emergency workers of Demi Moore doing whip-its (again, also called whippets) Monday night. What is nitrous oxide (the culprit behind a whip-its buzz)?
Nitrous oxide (N2O / loosely referred to as N.O.) is different from nitrogen oxide (NO2) and nitric oxide (NO). It is article worthy to mention that some “Spice” can increase nitric oxide. Nitrous oxide, unlike nitric oxide, is not a free radical and is not produced in the body.
Nitrous oxide can feel like euphoria. A chronic user of nitrous oxide can result in a vitamin B-12 deficiency. It is commonly used as a dental anesthesia (laughing gas). But that’s not the only use as found by two doctors and a 2002 study.
Maps – volume XII – number 2, summer 2002 of “Quitting Smoking: A Laughing Matter with Nitrous Oxide” details a radical smoking aide to assist when quitting smoking – nitrous oxide. For the first 72 hours after quitting smoking a quitter takes some nitrous oxide to kill the urge. The nitrous oxide blocks certain receptors that crave. Since the report smokers seeking to quit their nasty habit by considering a Chantix, nitrous oxide combination was not so far fetched.
“The nitrous oxide stimulates the pleasure receptors in the brain,” Dr. Jesse Haven from Anchor Health Center continues, “which leads to the replenishment of dopamine, a pleasure molecule.” The report continues to assure that nitrous oxide does assist in smoking cessation.
Demi Moore quitting smoking and using nitrous oxide to assist would be semi-believable, especially in the land of lollipops dripping with rainbows. But it is more tolerant and reasonable if Moore was smoking K2 or any other synthetic marijuana. She evidently “needs” something to mask her natural thought pattern (and apply to her youthful self-image).
Demi’s cravings led her to be loosely defined as the poster child for Red Bull addiction. Dropping in weight and running with those half her age seems to be her thing.
There’s nothing wrong with a little youthful excitement. That is if you have a 30-something-year-old body. Demi is 49 and edging closer to the half century mark.
Back to Demi Moore’s 911 call.
If you listen very closely you can hear that Demi slightly comes out of her seizure and breathes at a stable rate. A sign of relief for her witnesses. How can they expect anything else? The Roswell born “Margin Call” star is a peaceful fighter. You may not see it coming but she always manages to bounce right back.
You got to love Moore!
