Thank you for your post!! All of this seemed familiar but I just couldn't place it until your post. Yes it was used by witches and produced illusions of flight; start of the witches broom/flight beliefs. Tex Watson of Charles Manson fame also used it once and after he used it no one else wanted to try it. I don't remember the specifics and a quick google search didn't pull it up but I think they said that it reduced his intelligence as well as messing him up. Not something most people would eagerly volunteer for.
Nevertheless, 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.
The 18-year-old German went into his garden and set about severing his organs after downing a tea made with the plant Angels' Trumpet. The plant is a powerful and dangerous hallucinogen. Doctors were unable to re-attach either his penis or tongue. The student has been named only as Andreas, from Halle. His mother said: "Andreas was behaving normally the whole day until he left the house and disappeared into the garden for a couple of minutes."
Mr X, Tatum states, "fancied himself a lover of women. Tall, large-breasted blondes were his favourite. It was determined that, if effectively neutralised, [X] could be an asset. Therefore, it was decided that intimidation would be used to control [X]." They chose to use the drug Scopolamine, which also went by the nickname "Burundanga" or "the Voodoo drug". The drug is extracted from the pods of a flowering shrub that grows in remote regions of South America. In its processed, powdered form, Scopolamine is "void of smell, void of taste". When properly administered "it causes absolute obedience" without this being "observable by others". Importantly, the target will not recall any of the events that occurred during the period they were under the spell of the drug.
