GHB

     GHB is a dangerous drug often used for date rape.

It is colorless, odorless and may be tasteless.

Usually it is slipped into a person's drink sometimes "just to loosen 'em up".

 

Signs and Symptoms of may include:

If  you wake up after a party or date feeling as though you may have had sex

do not shower, bathe, comb your hair or change anything about yourself.

Call 911, a rape crisis center or go to the nearest emergency facility.

One of the key ingredients is floor stripper and it gets worse from there. It seems to
clear the body quickly and leave the person very weak if still alive. If you suspect
that you have become a victim of this drug go immediately to the nearest emergency
room and request a test be done for this and other date rape drugs. Time is critical.
