Bill Cosby Admitted To Giving Woman The Drug Quaaludes: What This Really Means
According to the Associated Press (AP) Bill Cosby admitted in 2005 that he got a sedative called quaaludes, with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with, and that he gave the sedative to at least one woman and “other people,” according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press.
Quaaludes are a central nervous system (CNS) depressant of the quinazolinone class that acts as a sedative and hypnotic. Also known as methaqualone, quaaludes peak in the bloodstream within several hours, with a half-life of 20–60 hours. Regular users build up a physical tolerance, requiring larger doses for the same effect. Overdose can lead to nervous system shutdown, coma and death.
