Colorado Drug Rehab's Date Rape Drugs



Thin Dotted line for Colorado Drug Rehab

Rohypnol is a brand name for a drug named Flunitrazepam, which is illegal in the U.S., but is legal in 60 other countries as a sedative. It is a powerful sedative that depresses the central nervous system. The drug is a small white tablet that is tasteless and orderless, which lends itself to being disolved in someone's drink and given to someone without their being aware that they have taken the drug until it is too late.

The drug is sometimes used to cut heroin and is one of the risk that heroin addicts take when they are buying heroin, but are actually getting the effects of Rohypnol instead. Supposedly it enhances the effects of heroin, but is actually less expensive to the drug pushers and is used to expand the amount of heroin that they are selling. Rohypnol disolves in liquid easily, especially alcohol.

The drug produces an extremely relaxed feeling of sleepliness, which includes blackouts, with a compete loss of memory, disorientation, nausea, difficulty with motor movements and speaking. All of these symptoms are basically similar to a feeling that one has when being anesthetized. As if this wasn't enough reason to stay away from this drug, it also is phycially and psychologically addicting as well.

Rohyphol is said to be 7 to 10 times stronger than Valuim. The drug takes effect in 10 to 20 minutes after ingestion. This drug is used as a pre-surgical medication, which demonstrates its strength. It certainly shouldn't be taken for any reasons other then under strict medical control.

This drug has been widely publicized as the date-rape drug because it can be slipped into one's drink where it quickly disolves and is undetectable to the victim. Under its influence, a predator can have control of the person and there are many documented cases of this drug being used to take advantage of women, especially in barroom settings.

To expand the list of slang names for this drug, it also goes with the following tags: Date rape drug; Getting roached; La Rocha; Lunch money drug; Mexican valium; Pingus; R2; R-2; Reynolds; Rib; Roach 2; Roach-2; Roaches; Forget me drug; Roachies; Roapies; Robutal; Rochas dos; Roche; Roches; Rolpes; Roofie; Roofies; Roopies; Rope; Rophies; Rophy; Ropies; Roples; Ropples; Forget pill; Forget-me pill; Row-shay; Ruffies; Ruffles; Sedexes; Wolfies. This is the most comprehensive list of street names that we were able to find, but there may be others by the time this is being documented.

Date-Rape...What is it exactly?

Victims of date rape are raped by persons with whom they were acquainted, as oppossed to strangers. The establishment of guilt becomes difficult when the victim diplays no physical evidence of violence and there is only her word against his. Therefore, there is a high incidence of under-reporting of this crime, often due to loss of memory in the victim, especially when drugs are involved.

Therr are certian Date Rape drugs that render the victim unconscious and limit memory, such as Rohypnol and GHB. In 2000, President Clinton signed a federal law banning the possession of distribution of the date rape drug called GHB. The fact that the parties knew each other or that the woman willingly accompanied the man are not legal defenses to a charge of rape.

GHB is Gamma hydroxybutyrate which can be produced as a white powder, tablet, and capsule forms or a clear liquid. It is colorless and odorless and has a salty taste, but when diluted in liquids, is nearly undetectable. GHB is usually made in home labs like those of meth production from a combination of gamma butyrolactone (GBL) and sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide. These are substances that are usually used to strip wax off of floors or to clear clogged drains. GHB has the effects of most poisons which produce withdrawal effects, including insomnia, anxiety, tremors, and sweating. As the dose increases, the sedative effects may result in sleep and eventual coma or death. It isn't as effective as a date rape drug becasue it doesn't have the loss of memory at the level that Rohyphol does, but it will make a person less in control of their lives and open to abuse.
