Nog meerdere bronnen geraadpleegd, omdat ik zeker wist dat GHB wel de Rape Drug...
Gamma hydroxy boterzuur (ghb) wordt ook wel verkrachtingsdrug (rapedrug) en vloeibare xtc genoemd.
De gebruiker raakt in een roes, voelt zich prettig en krijgt behoefte aan seks.
Het gebruik van ghb heeft weinig zichtbare effecten. Zo verwijden de pupillen niet. Het gebruik is lastig vast te stellen.
Ghb is officieel geen verdovend middel, maar een medicijn. Het is van oorsprong een narcosemiddel.
De 'verkrachtingsdrug' is reuk- en kleurloos.
Ghb is populair als alternatief voor het duurdere xtc.

The drugs Rohypnol and GHB are being used to render victims helpless in order to sexually assault them. Both drugs possess disinhibiting sedative and amnesiac properties. The drug is usually administered to the victim in an alcoholic drink at a bar, party, or social function.
WHAT IS ROHYPNOL? (Flunirtazepam)
Rohypnol is a brand name for flunitrazepam (a benzodiazepine), a very potent tranquilizer belonging to the same class of drugs which include Valium (diazepam), Librium and Xanax, but many times stronger.
The drug is often distributed on the street in it's original "bubble packaging" which adds an air of legitimacy and makes it appear to be legal. The drug is not commonly used by physicians in the United States and is not even listed in the commonly used Physician's Desk Reference
The drug has been added to punch and other drinks at fraternity parties and college social gatherings, where it is reportedly given to female party participants in hopes of lowered inhibitions and facilitating potential sexual conquest. Police departments in several parts of the country say that after ingestion of "Roofies" that several young women have reported waking up in frat houses with no clothes on, finding themselves in unfamiliar surroundings with unfamiliar people, or having actually been sexually assaulted while under the influence of the drug.
COMMON STREET NAMES:
Roofies, Ruffies, Roche, R-Z, Rib, Rope, Stupefi, Shays, Roachies
USE AND EFFECTS
Rohypnol is ingested orally, frequently in conjunction with alcohol or other drugs. The effects begin within 30 minutes, peak within 2 hours and may persist for up to eight hours or more depending on the dosage. Adverse effects of this drug are a decrease in blood pressure, memory impairment, drowsiness, visual disturbances, dizziness and confusion, and with some people it can cause excitability and aggressive behavior.
It is commonly reported that persons who become intoxicated on a combination of alcohol and rohypnol have "blackouts" lasting 6 to 12 hours following ingestion. Disinhibition is another widely reported effect. By itself, rohypnol is very unlikely to cause death but with alcohol the possibility exists that the combination could be fatal.
WHAT IS GHB GHB? (Gamma-Hydroxybutyrate)
GHB was originally developed as an anesthetic, but withdrawn due to unwanted side effects. It has ben used for the treatment of narcolepsy, alcohol withdrawal symptoms, and more recently as a growth hormone stimulant and fat burning drug used by body builders. In 1990 the FDA banned the sale of GHB in the United States. GHB can be produced in the form of a white power, but it is more commonly encountered as an odorless, clear liquid. GHB has a salty taste which is masked when mixed with a drink. GHB will remain in a person's blood for approximately 4 hours and will remain detectable in the urine until it has been excreted.

Classic CNS depressant;
1-2 hours life;

Muscle Tremors, twitches;
Sweat profusely (like PCP);
USE AND EFFECTS
GHB is primarily used by body builders with the false assumption that it will burn fat and increase hormone growth. It is promoted as a drug that will increase one's sexual awareness and lead to more intense sexual activity. Low doses result in a general feeling of euphoria, (similar to being moderately under the effect of alcohol) which include: decreased inhibitions, increased sociability, followed by drowsiness then sleep. Higher doses result in an immediate onset of intoxication leading to a deep unresponsive sleep, shallow breathing, decreased blood pressure and invariably anterograde amnesia. In conjunction with alcohol or any depressant drug it may be fatal.
GHB is categorized as a prescription drug under Title 21, U.S. Code, Section 353(b)(1)(B).
This drug can easily be disguised in a beverage. Within a few minutes of drinking the liquid, the victim will appear intoxicated and become helpless. The individual coming to her aid will appear a good samaritan to those watching, but may be the one who spiked by drink and is planning to rape the victim. When the victim regains consciousness she will probably have no memory of the attack. Because GHB is quickly absorbed into the human body, evidence will be lost if the victim's blood or urine is not preserved soon after the attach.
The half-life of GHB is about 20-60 minutes.
