    Link: World`s Scariest Drug: Scopolamine - Columbia`s scariest drug. This is what it is, what it does, and how it will ruin society.

    @brometheus thats pretty much the entire video in a nutshell. If it was truely as they said it is, then this drug would be more popular around the world than heroin or cocaine.

    This sounds exactly like the kinds of urban legends you hear about when you`re in Central/South America. The kinds of things cheaters and criminals invent to excuse their behavior. Or more specifically, the guy he`s interviewing in the jeep at the beginning.

    That was fascinating. You`d think biologists could`ve developed a drug based on the plant more effective for intelligence gathering by now, that is, causing fewer hallucinations. The CIA experimented with it in the 50`s and 60`s, purportedly. Why resort to water-boarding?

    Use: Labeled Indications

    Scopolamine base: Transdermal: Prevention of nausea/vomiting associated with motion sickness and recovery from anesthesia and surgery

    Scopolamine hydrobromide: Injection: Preoperative medication to produce amnesia, sedation, tranquilization, antiemetic effects, and decrease salivary and respiratory secretions

    Scopolamine butylbromide : Oral/injection: Treatment of smooth muscle spasm of the genitourinary or gastrointestinal tract; injection may also be used prior to radiological/diagnostic procedures to prevent spasm From drug guide.... Terrifying

    I immediately called bullpoo when I heard it was datura they were talking about.
    It`s a deleriant, you don`t act like normal but with no free will. You trip your balls off.
    It`s not limited to those countries. It even grows wild in sweden, was brought over by vikings who liked to blow their minds.
    The social stigma it has gotten over there seems to have given people a green light to make up crazy ass bullpoo stories about how they became mindless zombies following every order. It`s the power of suggestion and cultural myth. Much like voodoo only works on people who believe in voodoo.
    Sad to see.

    I`m not sure what to comment on. You must be intensely smart to have learned Spanish in 30 minutes. You also must be intensely stupid not to simply read the subtitles.

    Scopolamine`s effects on one`s self-control are wildly exaggerated. Desomorphine is scarier.
