Is there a drug that makes you lie ?

Dear Honest Peeps,

Three and a bit years ago I asked this 

http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=1118.0

Now, so many years later I wonder if there is a drug that does the opposite !!

A drug that a person who is  under even the strongest of 'co-operative persuasive techniques' is just not be able to reveal all !!

whajafink ?

Alcohol makes you lie.

1) She is NOT the most beautiful girl you've ever seen.
2) I am NOT your best mate in the whole world.

How about:

Quote
The patient is often disoriented to time and place. Disturbances in judgment and insight appear. The patient may abandon socially imposed restraints and resort to vulgar and inappropriate behavior. Perceptual clues may no longer be readily interpretable, and the patient is easily distracted and may have memory loss, most notably short-term memory. In the face of these deficits, the patient still tries to make sense of his environment and will not hesitate to make up answers on the spot to questions that confuse him. Speech becomes slurred and often senseless, and loss of inflection produces a flat, monotonous voice. References become concrete and semiautomatic with colloquialisms, clichés, profanity, and perseveration. Handwriting also deteriorates. Semiautomatic behavior may also include disrobing (perhaps partly because of increased body temperature), mumbling, and phantom behaviors such as constant picking, plucking, or grasping motions ("woolgathering" or carphology).
