This wierd name was passed to me as a warning
The gist of it is that it is a poison.
When placed on a paper or business card, the reciever upon touching it will get a dose of something similar to the date rape drug, it will make you weak, disoriented and easy prey for a robbery or worse....
If one smelled the paper with it on one would pass out....
Anyone else recieve this warning???
Is it a haox dyou think or real???
With such a strange name it could be somebody fooling around but i thought it interesting enough to make a thread.
peace....s

For example, there have been a number of unfounded circulating rumors that robbers in the United States used a transcutaneous delivery mechanism involving business cards, pamphlets or flyers laced with the drug. However, in actual fact, the quantity of toxin diffusing through the skin barrier after one short contact of the fingers with an object is much too small to be readily absorbed in the body and to have any significant effect. The use of burundanga (aka scopolamine) impregnated credit cards to attack and to rob isolated people is often propagated by chain emails and is presently reported as hoax or urban legend by many specialized web sites.[19][20][21]

Well ill tell you about it while wiping the egg off.....
Aparently there IS a drug they DO use for this pupose in South America with this name....
Thats the truth part...................
The rest is urban legend enough to hit on the first google....
The warning has been making the rounds....
But NO KNOWN USE OF THIS DRUG IN THE STATES.......
Further it seems to be a street version of scopalamine,that they use.
It is not asdeadly either as it must be inhaled strongly or ingested to work....though prolonged skin contact can cause symptoms too......
so much for urban legend ......so solly.......
This must be the fastest debunk in forum history....FALSE ALARM
Please delete as nessesary

Scopolamine aka burundanga is not a dangerous substance.

But it has been abused before.
In colombia many have used the substance to rape and rob people.
earthops.org...

Many times a little of the powder is put onto food or even in a gum rapper and then offered to a pretty girl.
After the drug takes effect you are basically in a highly suggestible state.
Which can lead to abuse.
