Date Rape Drugs

Rohypnol, a potent and fast-acting sedative, and GHB, a powerful depressant, are two
drugs reported to be used at bars, raves and parties to weaken a potential sexual assault victim. The odorless drugs are dissolved into drinks. Once dissolved, Rohypnol may leave a residue and GHB may give a salty taste, but both can be hard to detect in many beverages. Once the drug is consumed, the victim becomes weak, helpless or unconscious and unable to resist sexual advances. When the drug wears off, the victim may not remember what happened or who participated because the drug often causes amnesia. Recreational use of these drugs also has been reported. Physical incapacitation from using the drug(s) puts the user at risk for rape or other victimization. Recreational use also can lead to death from the physical effects of the drug.
