FROM MIND CONTROL UNTIL DEATH
I just read an interesting thriller. Dust of Orchids.
There they talk about a drug, among others, that I have heard of not just for the first time and it is considered the most dangerous drug in the world. Just three weeks ago, an American friend told me that he had become a victim of this powder. The drug is often used by prostitutes in nightclubs and bars, but also by organized criminal gangs. Among many names it is also called the rape drug.
It is administered in drinks, but there are also reports where it was blown into the victim's face while walking in the street. How a person then responds depends on the dosage. An overdose causes respiratory failure and death.
Breath of the Devil is what the stuff is called, because it steals the soul and takes away your will. My friend woke up the next day with no money and no computer. Relatively minor damage when you read the stories of other victims.
The actually demonized thing is, those people are fully conscious, normally articulated and do not look as if they are under the influence of a drug. They hand over their bank details to thieves, even empty out their own accounts for them and watch as the furniture is being schlepped out of their apartment. In the end, they say good bye to their 'new friends', hand over the car keys and the next day know nothing about all of this. One can not bring back to the surface what happened, even under hypnosis. It is as if the tape was erased.
Scopolamine or Breath of the Devil is a white trumpet-shaped flower that grows wild in trees in Colombia and Venezuela and is grown in Ecuador for medicinal purposes. It is a medication that restrains the uncontrolled tremors of Parkinson's disease and helps in small doses for motion sickness.
There are also reports from the 30's, 40's and 50's, that this drug was used in mental asylums, by drug addicts, alcoholics, and for births. For birthing, it was used to forget the traumatic pain. The condition was called twilight sleep.
The CIA used Scopolamine as a truth serum in the MKULTRA project during the 50's. It is even said that the Czech Secret Service used the drug in 2009 in order to get confessions from suspected enemies of the state.
Meanwhile, it is also used for bipolar disorder and depression.
