CAUTION PARTY GOER'S!
Scopolamine - Colombian 'Devil’s Breath' Drug Info. via So.Cal Rehab Facility
The drug is known as scopolamine or “devil’s breath” is
used as a kind of mind control agent to reduce people’s free will and
coerce them into doing things.
Scopolamine is a new drug (well not new per se, but it is new to us) that a recent expose from Vice.com (via CNN) has brought to our attention.
drug reminds this writer of 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 Vice.com article and video, the drug is so notorious that when they
went to Colombia to seek out the drug - the responses they got were
fearful and suspicious.
Before getting the processed drug, the
team visited a botanical garden where they found the found the
“Borrachero Tree” (a datura plant) 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.
Disturbing Accounts of Scopolamine Abuses
The video documentary interviews many people who have experienced
scopolamine (both as victim and perpetrator). The video leaves many
questions, like for instance 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. Many accounts discuss “devil’s breath's” high instance of
There are varying accounts of being able
to 'swipe' someone’s face (blow the drug into someone’s face) and thereby gaining control over their victim's mind through the power of suggestion. This drug's
reputation is a mix with local folklore and
superstition (much as with hallucinogenic drugs like DMT aka cohoba are
in the Vodou culture of Haiti).
thing that the video makes the viewer acutely aware of is that Columbia
is a dangerous place and participating in the nightlife their (as a
tourist or a resident) is fraught with peril. Colombia is known for
being “the cocaine capital of the world.” 1 in 3 kidnappings that happen in the world happen in Colombia.
Interviewees who discuss being “dosed” with scopolamine report crazy
stories that usually end with waking up after a blackout and then
retroactively piecing together what happened under the drug's
influence. Very commonly the victim is taken to their ATM for a major
withdrawal, and more than one reported helping the perpetrators empty their house of all their belongings – sometimes in the plain view of people who knew them.
prostitute in the video discusses with cold blooded practicality how
she can use devil’s breath to take advantage of men in the bars and
nightclubs. Scopolamine is also used as a date rape drug.
Dangers of Scopolamine
Per the Colombians, the drug is called devil’s breath because “it steals your soul.”
have come across such large variety of hallucinogens in our twenty five
years of treating addiction that it is safe to say that even beyond the
risk of fatal overdose, scopolamine is not a safe recreational drug.
has been used for a variety of medicinal purposes including as a
sedative and to treat nausea and motion sickness. Scopolamine has even
been researched to treat addiction (which doesn’t surprise considering
the other research that has been done with hallucinogens like ayahuasca
However, while many drug users who are fond of
hallucinogens feel righteous about using them because of their “natural”
origin and long history of use back to ancient times, we warn strongly
for users to beware of hallucinogens. Incidentally, the street drug
"devil's breath" that was purchased in the Vice.com documentary was
processed and powdered - it looked like cocaine.
Many of the
users in the vice.com documentary talked about memory loss. One man has
continual memory loss and also suffers terrifying nightmares since his
use. This is consistent with other accounts we’ve seen of heavy
Also, we know that 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 a lingering traumatic effects.
scopolamine seems to be a predatorial drug that is foisted upon
unsuspecting targets by people aiming to do them harm, we do not
hesitate to suspect that the drug can and will be used for recreational
“pleasure.” This is similar to the drug “rufies” (rohypnol), which is
primarily known as a “date rape drug” but also is abused as a party
drug. ~ pls. PASS THIS ON TO YOUNG PARTY GOERS AND FRIENDS.
