Rohypnol and GHB

Rohypnol is the brand name for a drug in the samefamily of medications as Valium and Xanax. It is illegal to manufacture,distribute, or possess Rohypnol (unless prescribed by a medical doctor). It is most commonly found in tablet form. Rohypnol is a fast-acting sedative. One of the most disturbing effects of Rohypnol is that it can produce aloss of memory while under the influence of the drug, which may be asignificant period of time. Simple possession of Rohypnol is punishable by upto three years in prison and a fine.  Distribution or administration ofRohypnol to another person without that person’s knowledge, and with the intentto commit a crime of violence, is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and afine. GHB is gamma-hydroxybutyrate. GHB also can cause loss of memory whileunder the influence of the drug. GHB is most commonly made in clear liquid formthat is colorless and odorless. It has also been produced as a whitecrystalline powder. Most GHB today is “homegrown” produced in “street labs” andthus, the potency of batches made varies significantly. Both Rohypnol and GHBdissolve easily, so a potential victim may be unknowingly drugged and worse,not be able to recall what happened while under the influence of the drug.
