Mary, Lucy and Maya are at a night club and they are having a lot of fun. They drank a lot but didn´t really pay attention to their cups.
We didn´t do this in a long time!!!
The next morning...
What.... what happened last night? I can´t remember anything
At the Hospital...
Miss Mary, yesterday night someone put a drug in your drink. We are not sure if it´s GHB- which is commonly known as Easy lay, G, Georgia Home Boy, or Rohypnol- which is commonly known as Roofies, Date rape drug or La Rocha.
They both started out as legal medicine. GHB was a popular anesthetic in the 60s. Rohypnol is a central nervous system depressant, a benzodiazepine, like Xanax but a lot stronger. Roche started selling it in the 70s, hospitals used it as sleep pills. They were both banned as people discovered that they are bad for you.
They can come in form of tablets, powder or dissolved in liquid, but they have no color or taste. Users can put in a drink, swallow the tablets, crush them and sprinkle them on marijuana or inject the liquid.
People use GHB for muscle building, fat burning, as a sleep drug or to help them if they stopped drinking or other drugs. Rohypnol is used to intensify the effect of other drugs, and both of them are often used in clubs to get young women unconscisius.
But...I didn't notice a difference in my drink!
Some of the withdrawal symptoms for GHB include tremors, insomnia and sweating, and for Rohypnol abdominal pain, hair loss or blurred vision. You would have these symptoms now.
Some of the short term effects that you would have had last night if you took GHB are Euphoria, Nausea, Dizziness, Drowsiness, Agitation, Blurred Vision, Slow Breathing and unconsciousness. For Rohypnol that would be coma, nausea, breathing difficulties, difficulty with motor movement, difficulty with speaking, sedation or rapid mood swings.
I have a terrible headache. Oh god that sounds awful!
If you use GHB for a longer period of time, you would have difficulty concentrating, hallucinating or slurred speaking. If you decided to take roofies you would experience physical dependence, psychological dependence or death.
From an overdose, yes. Please be more careful next time. If you are feeling better you can go home now, and don't forget; never take drugs.
