Transcript of Scopolamine: The DEADLIEST Drug in the World!

1 GRAM OF
SCOPOLAMINE
=
DEAD
MY PRESENTATION IS ON THIS CUTE LITTLE FLOWER KNOWN AS
A FEW DIFFERENT THINGS INCLUDING...
THE BURUNDANGA
THE SCOPOLIA
THE BELLADONNA
THE HYOSCINE
AND IRONICALLY, SOME CALL THEM THE ANGEL'S TRUMPETS,
WHILE OTHERS CALL IT
THE DEVIL'S BREATH
AND I FORGOT TO MENTION BEFORE PASSING OUT THAT FLOWER TO EVERYONE, IT'S THE
MOST DANGEROUS DRUG IN THE ENTIRE WORLD
SO YEAH... ALL YOU WHO SNIFFED THE FLOWER WOULD PRETTY MUCH BE DEAD RIGHT NOW
. . .
WHERE DOES IT GROW?
IT GROWS HERE, IN THIS COUNTRY CALLED
COLOMBIA
AND YOU ALL WANT TO KNOW...
WHERE CAN I
GET SOME!?
$8.07
$2.39
$10.00
ENTIRE TREE!
25 SEEDS
ONE PLANT
WHY'S IT USED?
IT'S THE DEADLIEST AND MOST DANGEROUS DRUG IN THE WORLD GROWING IN ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS AND DEADLIEST COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD AND LOOKS SO PRETTY THAT ANYONE WHO DIDN'T KNOW ANY BETTER, JUST LIKE ALL OF YOU WHO SMELLED THE FLOWER, WOULD BELIEVE YOU IF YOU SAID IT WAS JUST A REGULAR FLOWER FROM A REGULAR TREE.
WHAT DO YOU THINK IT'S USED FOR?!?!
MURDER PEOPLE
i thought i could use it to turn my pet cat
mr. whiskers into a pink, fluffy, unicorn
NO, BUT REALLY. IT'S USED FOR THIS LITTLE PATCH YOU PUT BEHIND YOUR EAR TO PREVENT SEA SICKNESS, MOTION SICKNESS, CAR SICKNESS, ETC.
c
.
INSTEAD OF "WHEN" LETS TALK ABOUT THE HISTORY OF SCOPOLAMINE!
1880 - GERMAN SCIENTIST ALBERT LADENBURG DISCOVERED AND CLASSIFIED SCOPOLAMINE AS A DRUG USED FOR MORE COMMON-DAY THINGS

1900-1960 - USED TO MAKE WOMEN IN LABOR PASS OUT (OR AS THEY CALL IT "GET SOME BEAUTY SLEEP") TO REDUCE PAIN

1950-1960 - USED AS AN ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN MANY OVER-THE-COUNTER SLEEP MEDICATIONS.

1990 - THE USFDA RESTRICTED SCOPOLAMINE FROM BEING USED IN ANY SLEEP OR OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDICATIONS

CURRENT - GOVERNMENT CLAIMS IT'S ONLY USED AS A MOTION-SICKNESS DRUG, EVEN THOUGH IN REALITY, IT'S ALMOST ALWAYS USED BY THE KILLERS
=
ONE SNIFF OF A
SCOPOLIA FLOWER
IF NOT ALREADY


IF NOT ALREADY
PASSED OUT
UNCONSCIOUS
DEAD
BUT EVEN WORSE THEN PASSING OUT OR GOING UNCONSCIOUS (BETTER THAN DEATH OF COURSE) IS JUST A FEW TINY LITTLE FLAKES OF THE DRUG BEING BLOWN AGAINST YOU. THAT HAPPENING CAUSES YOU TO BECOME COMPLETELY CONTROLLED BY WHOEVER BLEW THE DRUG IN YOUR FACE. YOU WILL DO ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING THAT THE PERSON TELLS YOU TO WITHOUT ANY THOUGHT OF "SOMETHING DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT HERE?" OR DOUGHT.
OPEN YOUR HOUSE DOOR AND BRING ALL THE STUFF OUT TO MY CAR!
OK!
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT US?
LETS START OUT LIKE THIS...
FOR ALL YOU PEOPLE THAT CUSS LIKE IT'S YOUR PROFESSION... YOU DO IT BECAUSE IT'S "COOL" AND NOT MANY OTHERS ALSO DO IT. BUT IF EVERYONE STARTED CUSSING, YOU'D HAVE TO FIND SOMETHING NEWER AND COOLER, RIGHT?
ALL THOSE CUSSERS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ILLEGALLY USED THOSE DRUGS LIKE MARIJUANA. NOW THAT'S LEGAL (AT LEAST IN COLORADO AND WASHINGTON)! SO THOSE RULE-BREAKERS ARE NEEDING FIND THE NEXT ILLEGAL DRUG TO USE! IF THEY KEEP GETTING LEGALIZED, WE'RE EVENTUALLY GONNA HAVE PEOPLE ROAMING THE STREETS WITH SCOPOLAMINE!
BEFORE I PRESENT, I WANT WHOEVER WANTS TO TO SMELL THIS FLOWER. IT'S NOT A TRICK... SEE, I'LL PROVE IT WITH SOME INFO!
NAME: THE BURUNDANGA FLOWER
NICKNAME: THE ANGEL'S TRUMPET
GROWN IN: COLOMBIA, SOUTH AMERICA
SEE, NO TRICK HERE.
IF YOU'RE REALLY WASTING YOUR TIME READING THIS SLIDE WHILE THE FLOWER IS BEING PASSED AROUND, CONGRADULATIONS! BECAUSE YOU FOUND SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE WON'T SEE!
WHO WOULD USE THIS STUFF?
MURDERERS. ROBBERS. THEIFS. KILLERS.
COLOMBIANS. DRUG ADDICTS. DOCTORS.
NURSES. NURSE'S ASSISTANTS.
NURSE'S SECOND ASSISTANTS.
HOMELESS. DARE DEVILS.
NOT REALLY.
AUSTIN STONE.
ALL THEM.
DRUNK PEOPLE.
RICH PEOPLE.
UR MOM!
TOM BRADY.
LOOK AT
ME! THIS
IS A TRUE
SENTENCE!
WHY ARE YOU
STILL READING
THIS? THE TEXT
IS SO SMALL BUT PREZI.COM JUST TOLD ME I COULDN'T ZOOM IN ANY FARTHER SO I GUESS I'LL STOP HERE!
IN REALITY, THAT'S SUCH A STUPID QUESTION. I MEAN, THINK OF HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD TRY THIS FOR WHATEVER REASON.
i would if it wasn't so deadly...
WHAT IS
THE DEVIL'S BREATH?
THE DEVIL'S BREATH IS A DRUG CALLED SCOPOLAMINE. BUT NOT JUST ANY DRUG, THE MOST
DANGEROUS
AND
DEADLIEST
DRUG IN THE WORLD. THE FLOWER, WHICH WE'LL CALL THE SCOPOLIA, LITERALLY RELEASES ALL OF THE DRUG'S INGREDIENTS, MAKING IT AS DANGEROUS AS SCOPOLAMINE ITSELF.
SIMPLE LAY-DOWN
SCOPOLIA
SCOPOLAMINE
COULDN'T GET SIMPLER...
JUST TO EMPHASIZE HOW DANGEROUS AND DEADLY SCOPOLIA/SCOPOLAMINE REALLY IS...
SO WHAT AM I TRYING TO TELL YOU?
GO TRY IT!
XX XXX XX
DON'T TRY IT!
THANKS FOR LISTENING!
