Certain benzos will also cause severe 'black-outs', literally entire nights can be forgotten with even a relatively low dose of these by themselves. An opiate addict, if Holmes was one, would almost certainly find access to these from his psychologist or his 'street' dealer.
Now, as to Holmes in prison a week later, being an habitual opiate user, is going through withdrawal of the substance. Withdrawal causes a person to look sick, whacked out of their mind, drugged up, and just flat out bad. It also causes severe stomach cramping, and even flu-like symptoms. To me, it is obvious that Holmes is going through an opiate withdrawal, which explains his drugged up look in court, and claims of stomach pains in jail.
To sum it all up, I believe this explains just about all of what has been discussed here regarding his amnesia and drugged look. He was on large amounts of opiates, is now going through withdrawal, and, if he added benzos to the equation, probably formed no conscious memory of the events of that night.

Right, and he had amnesia for weeks while he booby trapped his apartment.

There are several personal rules I have when I am on ATS. First I have my own list of Government shills who are on ATS. The list is not a long one but over time I have got to know some of these people.
When they come out to play in a thread, I take a great deal of notice. I find it most telling when they try to sway arguments. It tells us what the bad guys are trying to do. They are out in force in these threads.

a jail staffer told the Daily News.
Let's keep in mind, pun intended, that this comment came from a Jail staffer...should we rely on their expertise, or maybe even have them testify as to the strange behavior they witnessed..?
I think not, so this means nothing...
To General Population with him..! I would prefer that they were the true judge and jury in this case...

With all due respect to the theorem that he is a programmed assassin, one ponders why he wasn't given the code to self-destruct before taken in.

Most of us saw this coming and this will only add more fuel to the conspiracy fire that he was a programmed assassin/patsy. Looks like the prison guards are doing whatever they can do debunk it and claiming it's just an act, either way this story gets more confusing by the hour:
The Joker is playing the amnesia card.
Accused mass murderer James Holmes told jailhouse workers that he remains stumped about what landed him in a Colorado lockup, a jail staffer told the Daily News.
“He claims he doesn’t know why he’s in jail,” the worker said Thursday. “He asked, ‘Why am I here?’”
Holmes, 24, who is charged with shooting a dozen people to death and wounding 58 more at a screening of the new Batman movie, was also complaining of a stomach ache caused by lousy jail food after his sixth day at the Arapahoe County Detention Center, the worker said.
“He’s claiming his belly hurts him,” the worker said. “He complained once that he didn’t like the food . . . The guy killed 12 people, and he’s upset that he’s not getting a four-star meal?”

Typical effects of Scopolamine!
Think of the Norway Shooter...
...approximately one in five emergency room admissions for poisoning in Bogotá, Colombia have been attributed to scopolamine. In June 2008, more than 20 people were hospitalized with psychosis in Norway after ingesting counterfeit Rohypnol tablets containing scopolamine.
Scopolamine was integral to the plot of The X-Files season four episode Unruhe as a part of Twilight Sleep amnesiac.
The drug was used as an interrogation tool during Episode 9 of NBC's Kidnapped. It was also featured in "Smut", a December 2008 episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit's tenth season, in which a rapist used scopolamine to prevent the women he raped from resisting him and from forming memories.
The drug was portrayed as a mind-controlling drug in Castle episode "Undead Again" to enhance the experience of playing a zombie.
A search for Scopolamine turns up many links describing the effects and use of this deadly and dangerous drug.

I've had this theory since the day I saw him in court and quickly believed that he was under the influence of heavy psychotropic drug. Connect that with thte fact that there is not 1 single eye-witness who can link him directly to the shooting and I think the whole thing spells patsy!

Apparently his father and grandfather were involved in military research,
And his mother was a psychiatric nurse.
I would say his parents are probably satanists and they gave up their son to be a child sacrifice that would spiritually and pragmatically advance the goals of whatever satanic society they belong to.
Believe it or not that came from off the top of my head!
The selectivity of our senses and memories is enhanced when a topic is emotionally charged. Significant pleasing events and facts are reliably stored in memory and are easy to recall. (Almost) everyone remembers his high school graduation, first kiss, wedding, or birth of child. By contrast, unpleasant events and facts are undesirable, and the conscious mind takes deliberate steps to keep them from surfacing. Consciously rejected memories of this type are known as "suppressed memories." Some very traumatic memories are suppressed unconsciously and are known as "repressed memories."
Suppressed memories are part of conscious experience and current knowledge, but are intentionally kept out of consciousness because they are painful, disgusting, shameful, or stressful. The most common suppressed memories are those that diminish our personal value and make us feel bad about ourselves.
