Trivia

Benzedrine was the brand name for an amphetamine-class stimulant that was comprised of 50% levoamphetamine and 50% dextroamphetamine. When it was first released in 1933 it could be purchased without a prescription and was used for a number of things including as a nasal decongestant (a capsule with a strip soaked in Benzedrine rolled inside was used as a type of inhaler), it was also used to treat narcolepsy, obesity, hypotension, low libido and chronic pain. It was also used by soldiers in World War II, Korea and Vietnam who were on night missions to help them remain awake and alert. During the late 1940's and early 1950's doctors started seeing more and more cases of amphetamines being abused and people becoming addicted to them. As a result Benzedrine, and all amphetamines, were made prescription only drugs in 1959. Illicit Benzedrine used continued well into the 1990's until the drug was discontinued since other drugs that were safer and had no narcotic effect were discovered to treat many of the conditions that Benzedrine was used for. In modern medicine amphetamines are strictly regulated, they are schedule II controlled substances (the most strictly regulated class of medications that are controlled substances), meaning you need the original hard-copy of the prescription (can't be called or faxed in) and the prescription can't have any refills. Since amphetamines became controlled substances in the 1970's they have usually only been prescribed to treat ADHD, severe obesity where surgery and diet don't work and narcolepsy. See more »

Goofs

A case where someone stole a doctor's identity, medical license and DEA license would not be the jurisdiction of local police like the NYPD. Medical practitioners (doctors, dentists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners ect.) don't automatically have the privilege to prescribe all drugs. A medical license gives practitioners authority to prescribe any drug that is not a controlled substance. A practitioner needs to get a separate license from the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) in order to have the authority to prescribe medications that are controlled substances, like in this case Benzedrine. So if someone were unlawfully prescribing controlled substances by stealing a medical practitioner's identity to fraudulently use that practitioner's DEA license that crime would be investigated by the DEA and prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's office, not NYPD narcotics and the New York County DA's office.

The glamorous life of a model
19 March 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The SVU squad catches this case at the hospital door as a comatose young girl is left there. Her age makes this an automatic SVU case not to mention the fact that there are signs of recent sexual activity.

The girl turns out to be a teen model who has a pimp for a father so to speak who sees her as his ticket to the easy life. You get to be the parent of a Lindsay Lohan and life is a sweet ride or at least someone thought so for a while.

Imagine the surprise of Benson and Stabler when on the way to another teen queen model's apartment they find Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin there and investigating her homicide. Someone has definitely got a mission here.

For the glamorous life of a model you get to hang out with some really egotistical and hard people like agent and former model Bebe Neuwirth and fashion photographer Richie Coaster.

It all revolves around a really high end narcotics racket and a cute scam involving a comatose doctor. The message here seems to be don't get into the modeling game.
