Truth Serums & Torture

Interesting piece about US research into truth serums...

"After testing several compounds, the OSS scientists selected a potent extract of marijuana as the best available "truth serum." The cannabis concoction was given the code name TD, meaning Truth Drug. When injected into food or tobacco cigarettes, TD helped loosen the reserve of recalcitrant interrogation subjects.

The effects of the drug were described in a once-classified OSS report: “TD appears to relax all inhibitions and to deaden the areas of the brain which govern an individual’s discretion and caution. . . . [G]enerally speaking, the reaction will be one of great loquacity and hilarity.”"

just wondering what the effects on our world would be IF..... just for starters... all of our
elected and /or voluntary government officials
were totally willing to undergo periodic integrity screenings according to a very specific
and controlled application of different technologies completely safeguarded in all respects.
