New Drug, Colombia’s ‘Devil’s Breath’ Spreading Across the Nation (Video)

The U.S. is often considered to be isolated from the world regarding many issues. However, things are changing and a new drug that is growing in use is showing up across the nation. The drug is known as scopolamine, but its street name is “devil’s breath.” It is used as a kind of mind control agent to reduce people’s free will and coerce them into doing things.

It is a new drug with little if any information available on it. Per the Colombians, the drug is called devil’s breath because “it steals your soul.” Some have described the drug as being somewhat similar to rohypnol (or “rufies) because it is used to take advantage of people.  The main difference between scopolamine and rufies is that people who are under the influence of scopolamine can be alert and articulate … and yet unable to resist suggestion. The processed drug comes from the Borrachero tree  that contains burundanga, which is the active ingredient socopolamine. The Borrachero tree is native to Colombia, Venezuela, and Ecuador and the active ingredient burundanga is taken from the cacao seeds.

The history of scopolamine in Colombia dates back to before the Spanish conquest. It has been suggested that Indians used it to bury alive the wives and slaves of fallen chiefs, so that they would quietly accompany their masters into the afterworld. During WW 2, Nazi “angel of death” Joseph Mengele experimented with scopolamine as an interrogation drug.

Questions remain for example, how the drug can apparently “hypnotize” people – rendering them powerless to resist suggestion but still completely articulate but in other cases makes people instantly unconscious.  More problematic pertaining to its use are the accounts high instance of deadly overdose and of individuals being able to “swipe someone’s face” or “blow the drug into someone’s face” and then control their mind through the power of suggestion. Users of scopolamine often end up waking up after a blackout.
Although Scopolamine has been used for a variety of medicinal purposes including as a sedative and to treat nausea, motion sickness and to treat addiction, what is currently known is that scopolamine is not a safe recreational drug. Users complain of incessant memory loss and being plagued by re-occurring nightmares. Also people who have psychedelic experiences using hypnotic drugs like scopolamine have also reported longer term mental health issues like depression, confusion, and in extreme circumstances, psychotic episodes.  The potential to go into a dissociated state can leave someone with lingering traumatic effects.
