  IV Ditran


Ditran Given in Prison Experiment

I was incarcerated at the washington state penitenery at walla walla washington. In sept.1961 I was approached by the prison doctors. I was told that if I took part in an experiment that the parole board would look upon it favorably. They were using a drug called Ditran with which I was injected once and sometimes twice a week between sept. 61 and march 62.

In june of 62 I was released with no warnings about possible side effects.over the next 39 years I would have blackouts and flashbacks. sometime in 1964 I believe it was, I left my apartment in seattle to get a quart of milk and came to 30 days later in jail in new mexico with no idea how I had gotten there.
