Scopolamine has become increasingly popular as a date rape drug, because unlike other date rape drugs that knock the victim out, this drug leaves the victim in a state of compliancy, in an awake zombie state, where their mind is totally controlled so they can participate in the rape, then remember nothing at all. It is that very result that made the drug so appealing to the CIA.
This same mind control technique is being used to get victims to commit crimes, sometimes against themselves such as assisting in a robbery or their own murder. While the crimes may be caught by video tape and look like the person committing the crime is using free will, they are actually being controlled to commit the crime, and will have no memory of it afterward.
That actually reminds me a little bit of the situation with the guy (Bates?) over in Afghanistan who supposedly got drunk and slaughtered a bunch of civilians. I think he pleaded guilty in return for a lighter sentence but the set-up stunk, with his defender not being able to get at critical evidence and the stories not lining up (including witnesses who said there were TWO perps involved). He didn’t remember anything. I wonder if the drug interacts with alcohol, or if it can be taken with alcohol so that the person could be framed as being drunk.
Scopolamine comes from the Datura plant which is supposedly used by tribal medicine men in Mexico for their visions and power. It’s use as a date rape drug has come North with the illegals.
Scopolamine and morphine were mixed together and given to women years ago while in childbirth. If the mixture was just right the woman would feel little or no pain, would still be able to assist in the delivery (pushing at the proper time) and would have no memory of the birth process. Of course dosages would vary so some women were literally knocked out and unable to assist so that is why forceps were needed so often.
