World’s Most dangerous drug:Colombia's Devil’s Breathe

Before I start writing this article,I would like to ask few questions

How would you feel If your going to party,get drunk and black out all of sudden and when you wake up you find yourself in some park bench either robbed or raped .You pull up yourself and try to reach home and find that your house is looted.Later you think what happened ,but you can’t remember anything and you have no money so you reach nearest ATM or Bank to withdraw and you find no money in it.Well, this is the case of many victims who were drugged by this “Devil’s Breathe”.

VICE’s Ryan Duffy travelled to the country to find out more about the powerful drug. In two segments, he revealed the shocking culture of another Colombian drug world, interviewing those who deal the drug 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.


The drug, he said, 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.
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.

  • Scopolamine often blown into faces of victims or added to drinks
  • The drug is odourless and tasteless and can simply be blown in the face of someone on the street; their free will vanishes after being exposed to it
  • Within minutes, victims are like 'zombies' - coherent, but with no free will
  • Some victims report emptying bank accounts to robbers or helping them pillage own house
  • Drug is made from borrachero tree, which is common in Colombia
  • Vice Reports on Devils Breathe
