Cannabis as a Truth Serum
Cigarettes prepared as above outlined are perfectly normal in appearance and in taste.
There is a fairly wide range in individual difference in sensitivity in the drug. Furthermore, there are wide individual differences in inhalation habits. A single cigarette may produce mild but definite effects in one person, while two or three cigarettes, distributed over ½-1 hour may be necessary for other subjects. For subjects who have high tolerance or who inhale only a small amount, two or three additional cigarettes with .02 grams of the acetate should be administered over a period of time - from 1 to 5 hours until the desired effect is obtained. Stronger concentrations may be prepared, but should be used with considerable discretion.
If the cigarettes contain two to three times the standard dose of .02 grams, a somewhat different phenomenon may appear. Within five or ten minutes after beginning to smoke, the subject experiences dizziness and difficulty in focusing his eyes on objects. At the same time he may become apprehensive and anxious for more air. He may lose consciousness for a minute or so. If this degree of intoxication is reached, the subject may have no energy to get up from a reclining position for an hour or more, and he may feel stuporous for two or three hours.
