'Devil's Breath' Drug Can Erase Memory and Block Free Will
Please don't let this get popular
WTF? We're hoping nobody wants to be this high.
Word is spreading about a drug in Colombia called "Devil's Breath" that when taken, can block free will, erase memory and if that isn't bad enough, kill you.
The proper term for it is Scopolamine and it is derived from the borrachero tree that is commonly found in South America.
According to victims of the drug's effects, the odorless, tasteless powder can be blown into your face or added to a drink. Once it in your system, you become a zombie, under the power whoever is around to suggest something to you. You are aware of what's going on while it is happening, but the memory is completely erased once the drug wears off.
So yes, if you are under the influence of the drug and someone says "hey, take me to an ATM and give me your money" you will do it, willingly and forget that you did it afterwards.
The drug isn't "new" to those in the know. The CIA reportedly used it in interrogations during the Cold War and the drug, also known as "Burundanga," was infamously sung about by Celia Cruz back in 1974. Urban legend also says the powder used to be placed on business cards to intoxicate victims.
