17. Scopolamine? You know those patches you see behind people's ears on cruises

or ships? That's scopolamine. I don't understand how they can say it's not used for motion sickness. It's widely used for that.

Anything that makes a person drowsy could conceivably be used as a "truth serum", but it would be entirely dose dependent and this is not a medication often used for that, imo.

There are some significant problems with this story.
