#1 When I was in, the response if one of your buddies started doing the funky chicken was to shoot him with a couple of Atropine ampules, which were to be issued if going into gas country.
Same antidote you'll see on Raid.
Coincidence? I think not.

#2 Russian theater crisis. After a two-and-a-half day siege, Russian Spetsnaz forces pumped an unknown chemical agent (thought to be fentanyl, or 3-methylfentanyl) into the building's ventilation system and raided it. Wonder if this gas was similar? Some 39 hostage-takers (Islamists separatists) were killed and some 129 hostages were killed.

#3 I understand it was a quick-acting, powerful sedative. IIRC, hospitals use it for surgeries. If the doctors who were subsequently mustered and sent in had known, it would have helped a lot.

#4 Some 39 hostage-takers (Islamists separatists) were killed and some 129 hostages were killed.

And it's been pretty quiet since then, too.
