Common Date Rape Drugs and Their Effects


Date Rape Drugs are drugs that are used to assist in sexual assaults, as well as in robberies. These drugs affect your ability to protect and defend yourself from attempts of assault. They can make you weak or unconscious, or slightly awake yet with distorted sense of judgment.

They often come odorless, colorless and tasteless. This ability to conceal itself from the victim makes the drug even more powerful and effective.

Alcohol, sleeping pills, and generic cold medicines can be used to render the victim weak and confused. However, the three main date rape drugs are GHD (Gama Hydroxybutyric Acid), Rohypnol (Flunitrazepam), and Ketamine (Ketamine Hydrochloride).

GHB is also known as easy lay (for obvious reasons), bedtime scoop, cherry meth, liquid E, liquid ecstasy, G-juice, among other names. It can cause intense relaxation, dizziness, impaired vision, unconsciousness, loss of memory, or death.

Rohypnol is the trade name for flunitrazepam. Similar drugs that are also abused are clonazepam (traded as Klonopin in the U.S. and Rivotril in Mexico) and alprazolam (traded as Xanax). It can cause relaxation, drowsiness, impaired motor functions impaired, confusion, and loss of consciousness.

Ketamine is also known as black hole, bump, cat valium, super acid, and K or K-hole. It can cause hallucinations, impaired motor functions, numbness, and aggression.

Date rape drugs are also called ‘club drugs’ as they are often used in club, parties, concerts and raves.
