Well, I agree that its dangerous, but there's no point exaggerating. You will not go blind from scopolamine, nor from plants containing the various different mixtures of tropane alkaloids. What does happen is a couple of days being a bit cross-eyed & a bizarre effect on reading that can last a little longer. Text blurs, even if you close 1 eye. The letters jumble up & form random shapes.
You try this, you'll go Blind!

Seems like it would be something worth studying..
Well, extracting alkaloids from plant material is very easy. Its not that hard to purify them into a crystaline solid. What is not possible, without a good understanding of chemistry & a reasonable level of equipment, is to seperate the alkaloids from each other. So an extract that can be easily made will have the same effect as the plant material.
sort of distillate that isolates and/or concentrates an ingredient. That product may have different effects than the whole plant.
Based on what people who have tried it are saying, the drug isn't so bad.
