Frightening new "devil's breath" drug erases free will

“When God, in the beginning, created man, he made him subject to his own free choice . . . .  There are set before you fire and water; to whichever you choose, stretch forth your hand.” –Ecclesiasticus 15:14-16

Other than life itself, free will is the most precious gift our Creator gives us. This includes the freedom to believe in Him or not. Imagine that.
But why?
Thomas Aquinas explains in Summa Theologia: “Man has free will: otherwise counsels, exhortations, commands, prohibitions, rewards and punishments would be in vain.” Only by our free choice to do this or that, only by our freely choosing to believe in, obey, honor, and love God do the preceding acts have authenticity and meaning. For what good is a love that is coerced?
Free will being this supreme precious gift, the most evil thing is to take that away from us. That is exactly what a terrifying new drug from Columbia does — it erases our free will.
Beth Stebner reports for the UK’s Daily Mail, May 12, 2012, that scopolamine, colloquially and aptly called “Devil’s Breath,” is a chemical that is currently being dealt on the streets of Columbia. This most dangerous of all illicit drugs can block free will, erase one’s memory, induce hallucination, and even kill.
Scopolamine comes in an odorless tasteless powder and is derived from the Borrachero tree common to South America, which blooms with deceptively beautiful white and yellow flowers. Borrachero is loosely translated as “get-you-drunk”.

Stories surrounding the drug are the stuff of urban legends, with some telling horror stories of how people were raped, forced to empty their bank accounts, and even coerced into giving up an organ.
VICE’s Ryan Duffy traveled to the country to find out more about the powerful drug. In two segments, he interviewed those who deal “Devil’s Breath” and those who have fallen victim to it.
Demencia Black, a drug dealer in the capital of Bogota, said the drug is frightening for the simplicity in which it can be administered. Scopolamine can be blown in the face of a passer-by on the street, and within minutes, that person is under the drug’s effect. “You can guide them wherever you want. It’s like they’re a child.” In high doses, the drug is lethal.
The drug turns people into complete zombies and blocks memories from forming. So even after the drug wears off, victims have no recollection as to what happened.
One victim told Vice that a man approached her on the street asking her for directions. Since it was close by, she helped take the man to his destination, and they drank juice together. She then took the man to her house and helped him ransack her own belongings and her boyfriend’s cameras and savings.
According to the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, the drug – also known as hyoscine – causes the same level of memory loss as diazepam.
In ancient times, the drug was given to the mistresses of dead Colombian leaders – they were told to enter their master’s grave, where they were buried alive. In modern times, the CIA used the drug as part of Cold War interrogations, with the hope of using it like a truth serum.

Scopalamine is easy to get. In California it grows literally everywhere. Jimson Weed, Datura, Ferox, Stromonium, Belladonna, Nightshade, Mandragore. Even potatoes and tomatoes are nightshades and poisonous in their leaves and greens. Any tree or bush you see with trumpet shape flowers, commonly yellow, white, pink and purple is a nightshade and contains atropine and scopalamine. Medicinally they are used to lower heart rate, calm hyper activity, and induce trance-state in delusional patients. It figures some idiot would find a way to “party” with it.

Could this relate to the Aurora killer, and an unseen puppeteer? I’m only asking, but the question springs to mind.
BTW– This is not a new phenomenon. Before a trip to Colombia in the late 1990s, we were warned of the use of this substance by people who would kidnap Americans for ransom.

I need to add that Hollywood has given us a very unfair portrayal of Colombians. The Colombians I encountered during my time there were very hospitable, and showed no hostility toward me, a very obvious Gringo.

I was given Scopolomine in 1974 during childbirth when I should have had a C-section instead of a regular delivery. The doctor on call was someone who had never laid eyes on me, and had no idea that I was about to deiver a ten and a half pound baby. I remember nothing of what was supposed to be a happy time, and in the end I had to be given general anesthesia and stitches that would be hard to believe. My husband, who was only a junior in med school said that this “Twilight” made me try to climb… Read more »

Is this the same scopolomine that is used in patches for seasickness? If so, i believe i used it on several occasions with no adverse side effects, only drowsiness. The fact is, pharmaceuticals affect different individuals in different ways. Under the new dysfunctional guvmint, i do not trust anything anymore, it is as if we are all living in the Secret of NIMN. Are there FDA quality testing of the common drugs that are actually dispensed from our nations pharmacies? Is there any effective quality controls on a 1400 billion dollar per year industry? From personal experience over the past… Read more »

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this incredible post. How horrible it would be to have your free will affected by such a drug. And Doc’s wife, your experience is absolutely dreadful, especially for your husband. The white tulip flowers are so beautiful. Humankind misuses God’s creation and is tempted by the devil and his demons to destroy and mutilate.

That’s an Angel’s Trumpet plant. They are widely available. I have several myself. I knew they were poisonous but this is new info. You can buy them from most garden centers and online garden sites.

We have been given the power to step on snakes and scorpions so we can tell Satan in no uncertain terms: The Blood of Jesus is against you and the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is above all other names including the names of any kind of drugs that are being manufactured with the express intention to stop us being able to exert our free will over what we will think and do. We can cast down any vain imagination that would seek to exalt it’self above what we know of God and his Word. FUERA you foul demonic… Read more »

I like to think that I am usually up on this kind of thing but I have never heard of this. Scary, scary stuff. Thanks Dr. Eowyn. I am going to see if this has turned up in our jurisdiction.
