• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

There is a PPH video wherein Philip discusses this, and if I recall what struck me is that azide requires special storage and could put first responders at risk.

Find N if possible.

Azides (particularly sodium azide) form explosive compounds when mixed with metals. Higher reactive and unstable (shock sensitive). So not a thing to fool around with IMO.

I dealt with hazmat for a time in my career and that stuff scared everyone- especially the fire department.

Hey Phillistine,
Don’t mean to hijack this thread but off topic will my method (nitrogen gas via exit bag) necessitate the hazmat? I know it poses zero risk to anyone but if I leave a note to first responders wxplaining my method will they typically follow this or will hazmat automatically be called in?

Depends on local first resonders protocol - if they suspect an oxygen deficient environment they would call. EMS wouldn’t know and even with an explanation would probably defer to fire department with a 4-gas meter to verify.

First responders motto - when in doubt “sniff” it out (i.e. use a meter)
