Be careful. I think that I have heard that this can be very risky--I think that some of the "false memory" cases involved drug induced hypnosis--like "truth serum". I think what can happen is a blurring of real memories with what is suggested by questions. BTW, I am not a "false memory" advocate. I do believe repressed memories can be recovered, but I also believe there has been a fair amount of malpractice around the blurring of recovered and false memories.

Memory is a tricky thing, and I am not sure that playing around with drug-induced hypnotic states is a great idea. JMHO.
