A drug called ‘The Devil’s Breath' (scopolamine) has become the new drug of choice in Colombia because of its unusual effects.
Scopolamine comes from the Borrachero tree, which has white and yellow flowers (pictured left).
According to the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, the drug, also known as hyoscine, causes the same level of memory loss as diazepam.
Reporter Ryan Duffy traveled to Colombia (video below) and interviewed people who had used the drug.
Scopolamine, which is oodorless and tasteless, can be blown in the face of a person, and within a minutes, that person is under the drug’s effect.
Reportedly, people, under the drug, can be easily controlled and have no memory as to what happened.
Apparently criminals are using it on unsuspecting people, ordering them to empty bank accounts and give up possessions.
