Drugs (Drug-French: Drogue-a dry herb) are frequently involved in homicidal, accidental or suicidal deaths. The ever-increasing number of synthetic drugs, which are used as poisons, is adding to the complications. Some drugs are very close to one another in their chemical and physiological behaviour. The increasing use of drugs along with liquor is becoming a common trend in homicide. The use of drugs causes increased level of intoxication, which results in the victim’s inability to judge the gravity of the situation and hence very often falls on easy prey to the murderer’s whims. Since the deceased is generally heavily drunk the investigating agencies trend to divert from a homicidal murder to often an accidental one e.g. Benzodiazepanes (BZDs) produce centrally mediated skeletal muscle relaxation without impairing voluntary activity. BZDs synergise with alcohol and other CNS depressants leading to excessive impairment.

Homicidal, Accidental, Alcohol, Oxazepam, Narcotic, Hepatic, Bzds.
