A man has left his viewers stunned when he explained how the "scariest drug in the world" took over a person's free will.
TikToker Brett recently re-watched a 2012 documentary from Vice, where they mentioned the dangerous side effects after inhaling scopolamine – or Devil's breath.
He gave a short summary: "Scopolamine, or Devil's breath, can completely eliminate your free will.
"According to a 2012 documentary from Vice, inhaling just the tiniest amount can put you under the drug's effect, in fact, such a small amount that a passer-by could just blow some in your face as they walked past you and you'd be under its effects.
"To the average person you appear to be normal, completely conscious and walking around except for the fact you would be completely susceptible to suggestion.
"If you were under the effects of scopolamine, and somebody said to you 'take me to the bank, withdraw all of your money and then hand it to me', you would do it."
Vice reporter Ryan Duffy travelled to Colombia and met a drug dealer in the capital of Bogota, who told him that the drug is frightening for the simplicity in which it can be administered.
"You can guide them wherever you want. It's like they're a child," he explained, adding that the drug turns people into complete zombies and blocks memories from forming.
So even after the drug wears off, victims have no recollection as to what happened.
Brett also mentioned a case from the documentary: "A victim wakes up from his apartment and it's completely empty.
"He asked the doorman what happened and the doorman said he brought two men along and he giving them all of his things, so the doorman just let him do it because he looks completely normal and like he was doing it of his own choice."
Some of his viewers heard about this first time and said it's their "new fear unlocked".
