(I sent this message earlier, but it doesn't seem to have made it through. 
Anyway, here it is again...)

My wife is an insurance investigator and she needs a toxicologist to
comment on the toxicity of a certain drug -- Roxanol (morphine sulfate).

The question is, would 90ml of Roxanol (which contains 1800mg of morphine
sulfate) be fatal to a woman weighing less than 100 pounds, assuming it was
all taken at once?

Any thoughts on this, or does anyone have an idea where she could go to get
an opinion?
