And they have been described as "100% dumbasses."  

The drug is barbiturate no different than other barbiturates, so if you 
believe you are truthful when you're sleepy, I have some swampland to 
sell you in Florida.

By the way, the number of drugs law enforcement has used as "truth 
serum" through the years is amazing. Belladona extracts (atropine and 
scopolamine) were also described as "100% effective truth serum."
