Nitrous oxide

Nitrous oxide is most commonly made by fusing and "boiling" ammonium nitrate to form steam, nitrous oxide, nitrogen, ammonium nitrate 'fog' and small amounts of very toxic higher oxides of nitrogen. Nitrous oxide drug is often mislabeled as an 'inhalant', implying it bears a relation to substances such as glue, gasoline, or aerosol sprays. The drug currently (as of 2005) enjoys moderate popularity in some countries. It was often sold at Grateful Dead and Phish concerts. N2O is widely used clinically because of its good analgesic properties; however, it is a relatively weak anesthetic, requiring high volume percent and hyperbaric conditions to achieve the minimal alveolar concentration for anesthesia
