This happened at the CE office in Bavaro. I guess you have no money. $1,000 or more US and we meet with the girl and go to the PN. Otherwise keep making a fool of yourself............Done with you ............

I always thought this was a scam the girlfriend here uses to tell the Gringo in the United States she got robbed coming out of the exchange house on somebody threw powder in her face how do I know this many girls here have told me they do this often and the Gringo Falls for it

A lot of husbands in Colombia fall for it, too. These girls were definitely drugged, just not by having powder blown in their faces.

Enough of the bickering! You can believe or disbelieve as you choose, but don't spill this puerile back and forth nonsense all over a news thread.

I will be deleting and giving infractions for any continuation of the silliness and posturing.

I've spent a lot of time in Colombia and drugging people is pretty darn common and it is always attributed to the burundanga but the truth is that 95% of the time they are using alternate drugs purchased in the farmacia,usually scopolamine and one other but the name escapes me.. I can not speak of what these thieves are using in the DR but my guess is that it is not burundanga.

I know Cyanide compounds can be absorbed through the skin when in a liquid state not too much the powder..

Scopolamine is also called Devil's breath or burundanga.

I don't think it is beneficial to spread unsubstantiated fear that has zero scientific data to support it. No bickering was done Sir. It was just gentleman disagreeing.

They did not blow powder in my friends face as well as she can remember. A woman was whispering a question. My friend leaned in to hear better. She remembers a man came close. Then not much after except she felt like they were her best friends in the world and she would do anything for them. Like wiping out her and husbands savings for retirement in banco Leon. The police got the man (from Columbia and was deported) but never the woman and my friend never never got the money returned.

It happened in Colonial Zone.

Your behavior in this thread was far from that of a gentleman.

Ok, chemically speaking Scopolamine is used to combat motion sickness or as a precursor to anthesthia and in no way shape or form can it "render a victim incapacitated". It may cause hallucinations in 1 out of 100,000, and for that you would have to have some pre existing allergic condition. It does help with nausea, dizziness and certain anxiety. It's sold in pharmacies. "Burundanga" is a slang word which carries no medical significance. Scopolamine is approx 1/8 as effective as ketamine. So there's that. I think there have been pronoun folks claiming to use it in drinks in discos to render their mates "more agreeable" for non traditional sex.

If scopolamine were so effective, there would have been no need to waterboard those prisoners at Gitmo.

It's medically used to treat motion sickness and nausea. Doctors wouldn't be prescribing it for that if it turned their patients into zombies.

In large dosages, the CIA did experiment with scopolamine as a 'truth drug". It wasn't very effective.
