World's Scariest Drug (Documentary Exclusive)

147681 ratings | 31009741 views
VICE's Ryan Duffy went to Colombia to check out a strange and powerful drug called Scopolamine, also known as "The Devil's Breath." It's a substance so intense that it renders a person incapable of exercising free will. The first few days in the country were a harrowing montage of freaked-out dealers and unimaginable horror stories about Scopolamine. After meeting only a few people with firsthand experience, the story took a far darker turn than we ever could have imagined.

What is scopolamine? Scopolamine reduces the secretions of certain organs in the body, such as the stomach and intestines. Scopolamine also decreases nerve signals that trigger your stomach to vomit. Scopolamine is used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by motion sickness or from anesthesia given during surgery. Scopolamine is also used to treat certain stomach or intestinal problems, muscle spasms, and Parkinson-like conditions.

Datura is also in Honest Hearts (Fallout New Vegas DLC). If you're a chemist-type build, you can create some potent poisons.

And of course, they flushed what everyone had called the "Devils Breath", the one that captures your free-will , into the toilet. You might as well have left it with the drug dealers instead. At least they didn't spread it into people's water supply.

Klax Cuy (15 days ago)
I recognized the datura at the first glance. I knew this plant since I was a teenager and this is not a drug but a poison. The lethal dose is so close to the hallucinogenic one that it makes it more dangerous than attractive. It's just a wild plant that grows up almost everywhere and the seeds are definitely the most dangerous part. The effects also last for the whole life and you would be really desperate to to give it a try.

Scopolamine sounds a lot like the fictional drug from the 2013 independently film "Upstream Color." In the film it also causes hypnotic susceptibility.

Es totalmente falso, para que te haga efecto tarda aproximadamente 30 min a un poco mas. No sé si este doctor haya realizado un test o pruebas con personas, el habla sobre comentarios, yo realice unas pruebas conmigo mismo, con respeto al polvo, para que haga efecto se tendría que inhalar como la cocaina de forma directa y con fuerza, con agua o alguna bebida. En el caso de inhalar es mentira que alguien venga te sopla o en el ambiente esta el polvo y te cause efectos, es falso y hay pruebas mias. Lo que se realiza es tratar de invitar alguien que inhale con cocaina y haga efecto. O en alguna bebida pero eso tardaria 45min aprox. Lo cual te hace hace efecto adormecimiento que uno mismo se percata al pasar los minutos y luego causa sueño porque se va la visión. Se va los recuerdos porque se llega en sueño profundo pero despues de unos minutos, sucede mas cuando se a bebido alcohol. Es falso que venga alguien te diga que hagas algo y lo hagas, los psicólogos indican que las personas hacen caso es por el miedo. No existen estudios por parte del gobierno o de los médicos. Cualquier quimico farmacéutico o en toxicologia lo puede probar y romper el mito. Para sacarse de las dudas traten de intentar pocos dosis y listo. Saludos.
