"Wonderful. Filius, 30 points to Hufflepuff, by the way, I would like to ask you a question, would death eaters or those accused by the ministry willingly take Veritaserum? The answer would be no, is isnt the colorless feature of this potion, a good way of tackling and understanding the truth?

*jade raises her hand*
Professor, I think on a positive note for this potion could be in great use for convicted murderers or other criminals on their way to Azkaban. During the time of their interrogation, the potion can be used to stimulate the mind of the convicted and perhaps lead to a future justice. If he confesses, he is on their way to Azkaban.

I think on a con note, I see the potion as an invasion of privacy. Let's say for example, one of the Pop Star witches has a new boyfriend and she doesn't want him exposed to the wizarding world media. I think that it would be wrong for a writer of the Daily Prophet to pour the potion in their drink during an interview, and there the potion manipulates the star's free will to their own privacy.

((I apologies if this was already an answer.))

I Sat there quietly and listened to what everyone was saying. I decided that one pro was that if I were a life ir death situation you could get answers. A con would be its what they believe which is not necessarily th truth.

i sat there listening when finally i stepped in.
"Well I think that it is ok to use veritaserum under sercumstance. Only for a trial though. and only questions like, did you do this, did you see who did it, are you positive thats who did it? so on and so forth. It seems that only under those sercumstances should veritaserum be used."

Tonks walked into class, trying not to be noticed by Professor Snape. She was late... again
She raised her hand. "Veritaserum, pros... The person who drinks MUST tell the truth. It is clear, so it is easy to slip into somebody's tea. Another good thing, is that it could be used on Death Eaters, so that we can find out more about Voldemort. Some cons are that the person drinking it only tells what they believe, not necessarily what is the truth. Veritaserum is also a very complicated potion to make. It takes a while too. In my opinion, it is a very useful, and is a good potion. It is a potion that has many pros, but also has many cons. It all depends on perspective." Said Tonks quickly

" Thats True. Though it can be useful, it can also be pointless. The person that consumed it can only tell what they think or think they know. SO therefore, you can never really be sure if you are getting truth or not...." Shannon spoke loudly to be herd

Maybe occlumency is the answer? The bad things about the potions is that not everyone are good at doing them. That means the Veritaserum could turn into a poison if it was not properly made. That's why if one can use occlumency well, it's a more relayable way and also it can really[i] rip out the truth - not only the truth as the victim sees it, but the truth itself.
