Roofies

Rohypnol is Hoffman-LaRoche’s registered trade name for Flunitrazepam. It is available in at least 64 countries worldwide and is a prescription drug used for sleep disorders and psychiatric cases. It is ten times more potent than Valium.

Sexual predators often refer to Rohypnol by street names that derived from the mispronunciation and misspelling of the drug’s name. Rophies, Roofies, Rope, Rib, R2, and Mexican Valium are just a few of the street names. It is also referred to the “Forget Pill”.

Rohypnol is colourless, tasteless and odorless, and when combined with even the smallest amount of alcohol can cause almost immediate uninhibiting effects. The victim may appear to be drunk but is in fact drugged and has no idea what is going on.

Liquid Ecstacy

GHB, Gamma hydroxy butyrate, was used as an anesthetic on humans in Europe during the 1950s. It has been studied in the use of treating conditions such as narcolepsy, Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia.

The street names for GHB are Easy Lay, Ever Clear, Georgia Home Boy, G, Gcap, Liquid Ecstasy, Grievous Bodily Harm, Cherry Meth and Soap. GHB is a clear liquid that can be easily disguised with food coloring. It can be mixed with juices, alcohol or other liquids to disguise taste and look. It is also found in a powdered form which resembles soap powder in look and in texture.

GHB has a plastic or salty taste and is often mixed with a sweet drink to disguise the taste. It will also turn a clear drink cloudy. These drugs are very, very dangerous and can cause a range of side effects – all of which are serious and can be life threatening.

Do NOT attempt to use these drugs under any circumstances as the result could be fatal.
