This spell has two uses: it can enhance a poisoned weapon or it can enhance the poison DC of a creature with a natural poison attack. When cast on a weapon already coated with poison, the spell doubles the length of time the weapon stays coated. Thus, poison coated on a weapon is effective for two hits rather than one. This spell affects only one light slashing or piercing melee weapon already coated with poison. In addition, the wielder gains a +1 bonus to initiative the first time he strikes with the poisoned weapon.

If used on any snake or snake-like creature that has a natural poison attack, the save DC of the creature’s poison is increased by 2.
