Worth the $50
Scopolamine

DOSE:
  IV Scopolamine (liquid)

BODY WEIGHT: 120 lb


I signed up for a medical study to make some quick cash.
$50 and they injected me with Scopolamine HCl and made me do memory tests for 2 hours.

Some notable effects:
absolutely no euphoria
confusion
dissociation (feelings of unreality)
incredibly dry mouth that water does not help
inability to walk straight
severly disrupted short term memory

Overall the effects were unpleasant and a nuisance, perhaps more unpleasant b/c of the doctors staring at me taking notes making me feel rather uncomfortable.

Took about 5 hours for the effects to wear off, but I was walking into shit for maybe another 5 hours after the mental effects were gone.

No fun.
