Technically, that should be MañanacillinTM, which is how it inevitably appears when mentioned in the pages of American Flagg!.
MañanacillinTM is of that class of substances euphemistically referred to as ‘morning after pills’ or abortifacients. Sold in pill form by the Plex, its existence serves primarily to reinforce the general disregard for the consequences of their actions that characterises most of the citizenry of 2030’s Chicago.
Curiously absent from American Flagg! is any religious group decrying MañanacillinTM as the offence against God’s will they would no doubt see it as.

Technically, that should be SomnambutolTM, which is how it inevitably appears when mentioned – even when a character says it name in dialogue (I always wondered if they actually said the TM’s or not – Mr Chaykin, if you’re reading, please let us know :)).
A recreational barbituate and hallucinogen, SomnambutolTM, is sold in pill form by the Plex, and is soluble in most common drinks. It does not seem to have much of a taste when in drinks, so it’s presumably a popular date-rape drug in the Chicago of the 2030’s.
It is also available in a more concentrated aerosolised form, in which it is commonly used by law enforcement and private security agencies for crowd control, since it knocks people out for about an hour, and does so quickly and mostly harmlessly – although use does seem to lead to slight hangover-like symptoms afterwards.
