The Scariest ‘Mind Control’ Drug In The World (Video)


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.

  1. You do realize you can buy it over the counter here in the U.S. as Scopolamine patches for motion sickness.

     they should have tried it. pussies

  3. This is an old story and Disinfo should be ashamed of running this alarmist shit. Scoplomine is an effective stupefascient like many another. Besides the most effective mind-control drug is television. We all know that.

    This was a cool story FIVE YEARS AGO!

  5. Funny I hear similar shit about Ambien and other hypnotics.

    oh whatever… that’s the stuff in datura, and it might even be what they use to dilate your eyes at the optometrist…  it’s a plant for shamen and stuff…   Jimson weed makes appearances in the book about huckleberry finn, if I remember correctly…  or they at least mentioned it in the book.

    Scopolamine is a not mind control drug and this video is hosted by a couple of uneducated fools. Scopolamine is found in plants like datura & belladonna and has been used by shamans for thousands of years. Its not a psychedelic, its a deleriant. When its used at deleriant levels its easy to overdose. For most people it causes nightmarish hallucinations and horrifying experiences that can possibly be deeply traumatizing. Not recommended. Not something to dabble with just to have new experiences, only for people really serious about shamanism. (and even if you are I still recommend you not try it.)

    There are no mind control drugs.   This is just jimson weed. It’s not even a controlled substance.

  9. I should like VICE but for some reason I don’t. They try too hard to be hip.

    This is old news with a bunch of old facts and stats… and why does he have to discriminate people like that? I mean, why does he include captions of those people who speak world English perfectly? Is it because they are not born in the US?

    The first we see of that guy was recorded in the capital’s botanic garden… it is not because Bogota is a jungle like most people believe because of assholes like this or Hollywood.Like these people in the comment thread say, there are products that have the same effect or contain the same chemicals.The reason they talk about scopolamine in this way is because Colombia’s population in general is scared of that shit and whatever criminal minds come up with.

    Scopolamine’s in the same class of drugs as diphenhydramine, the active ingredient in benadryl and over the counter sleeping pills. The stuff was originally the drug of choice for OTC sleep medicine, until enough people started getting side effects and drug companies switched to diphenhydramine.

    Diphenhydramine has effects just as bad as scopolamine. In low doses, both drugs just produce drowsiness – but higher doses will wack you the fuck out in the worst possible way. When I take diph for enough consecutive weeks to deal with insomnia, it builds up in my system and I start getting minor visual distortions during the day – patterns on carpets move slightly, etc.

    dear disinfo: you fucking suck lately.

    How was that a dark turn? A group of murderers got their comeuppance. Just because some bitches got raped the feminist, whiteknight mentality kicks in and it’s a “darker turn”. People were dying and getting fucked that whole video. I wish those murdering, thieving bitches (and pimp) could come back alive to get brutally raped and murdered again.

    • The idea that rape can be a form of justice is a dark turn.  (I don’t really have a problem with the killers getting killed part.)

      • railroadwino | Jun 11, 2012 at 7:55 pm |

         This is exactly the disgusting feminist mentality that makes me wanna puke. “Sure they got killed, fine, but how dare their sanctity be violated?” Neither is desirable, but on the scale of terrible acts rape is a 2 compared to murder at a 10.

        • That’s interesting, because I don’t consider myself a feminist, and your mentality makes me want to puke too.

          Also, men get raped all the time.  You okay with that?

             as long as there is a cute squadron of vaginas

          • Calypso_1 | Jun 11, 2012 at 11:42 pm |

            Freud would have a field day with that

          • If you were willing, how would that be rape?

          • Pistonear2003 | Jul 5, 2012 at 7:22 pm |

            Rape can occur when a person lacks the capacity to give or refrain from giving consent. The drug seems to inhibit the victim to the point were they can not withhold consent. Therefore it is rape. Both rap and Murder are equally horrible crimes. Rape victims suffer for a life time, as do the families of the murder victims.

        • Rape will leave mental trauma for the rest of said persons life male or female, murder your dead I’m not positive but I’m pretty sure you don’t carry that with you for the rest of your life because you’re DEAD!!!!

          •  well if your dead you wouldn’t be experiencing anything and as far as trauma goes from the time i was 4 tell I was 9 i was sexually involved withe a girl 4 years my elder who learned such things from her dad we had friends and were pretty normal all in all no understand the trauma was hearing how evil bad and nasty such things are witnessing an unending sea of examples hearing your loved ones disgust and keeping the hole thing a secret still to this day

            so @a80fb7b583b7d64638e22c901d8132bc:disqus  your right TV’s a better mind control drug

          • Regarding you being “pretty normal all in all,” I don’t believe you.

    Tropane alkaloids – old news.
    Yeah, this story is disinformation
    in the worst sense of the term.

    It’s obvious that not a single person on this comment thread has been exposed to pure scopolamine. It actually is exactly what this video says it is – a terrifyingly potent mind control drug.

    • Calypso_1 | Jun 11, 2012 at 8:12 am |

      what dose have you experienced and in what setting was your mind being controlled?

      • You can buy it legally, with prescription, for motion sickness and ibs. I have used pure scopolamine and I my mind was not at any point controlled when using this drug. It’s a belladonna alkaloid. All it is is a terrifying hallucinogen that can cause delirium at high doses. I think they’re confusing delirium with mind control. You become confused and delusional, but nobody can control you.

  17. Least its not crocadil

  18. This drug should be outlawed with hugh fines or prison for pocessing it or selling it. There is no good that could come from this drug, it is presented as extremely dangerous. There would be no good reason for possessing it. I just hope our government is not using it. It should be outlawed with the government too.
