What is GHB?

I saw a movie five years ago in HBO about a true to life story of a very known man internationally having charmed and lured women to engage with him sexually by drugging them using this date rape drug. Let this story and research be a warning to women who goes out to party especially those who are offered to have a drink, whatsoever drink it is. Let me first give some facts about GHB.

GHB: Gamma hydroxy butyrate or Gamma hydroxybutyric acid, Sodium Oxybate

Made From: gamma butyrolactone (GBL) and Sodium Hydroxide or Potassium Hydroxide - basically it is degreasing solvent or floor stripper mixed with drain cleaner. When GBL or BD or products containing them are ingested, GHB is produced in the body, that is why we refer extensively to GBL and BD products on these pages.

Street Names for GHB: GHB, "G" (most common), Gamma-OH, Liquid E, Fantasy, Georgia Home Boy, Grievous Bodily Harm, Liquid X, Liquid Ecstasy (is not ecstasy), Scoop, Water, Everclear, Great Hormones at Bedtime, GBH, Soap, Easy Lay, Salty Water, G-Riffick, Cherry Meth, and Organic Quaalude, Jib

Description: A clear liquid. Looks just like water. Can be mistaken for water because it is usually found in a small (30ml) clear plastic bottle, a water bottle, or even Gatorade bottles, which contains several doses. One quick taste, and you'll know it's not water. Not as common, but also found as a white powder. Infact powder use is on the rise!

Effects: Intoxication, increased energy, happiness, talking, desire to socialize, feeling affectionate and playful, mild disinhibition, sensuality, enhanced sexual experience, muscle relaxation, loss of coordination due to loss of muscle tone, possible nausea, difficulty concentrating, loss of gag reflex.

This drug was popularized because of the true accounts of the rape case thrown to Max Factor heir Andrew Luster. Of course every woman knows what Max Factor is. For those who doesn't know, it is a well known line of cosmetic products. It is said that Luster used this as an additive to the drinks given to his victims. He was accused by three women of raping them and videotaping the acts of those rapes. Andrew Luster was arrested in his house and the police searched the premisses and found the alleged video tapes of Luster preying his victims. The case went dramatic when Luster fled after two weeks of trial to avoid conviction in the case filed against him. He was caught by a bounty hunter named Duane "Doug" Chapman who had been on his trail for months. He was found guilty of the 86 of 87 cases filed against him and was sentenced for 124 years of imprisonment.

I hope this story of mine gives warning to those women who loves to go out and drink. Be careful of what you drink or what is given to you. The drug is very easy to produce for the components can be bought easily. It is very deceptive for it is like water. The drug if overdosed can bring someone into coma.

I see..
My father would always warn me.."When you're in a bar don't leave your drink coz someone might put something in it"
When I was in high school, I nearly collapsed along the street.I sat beside a store when a man tried to give me hot milk..he said "drink that it'll make you feel better" ..but of course i didn't..I don't trust people that much..Whew!

Thanks for reminding!
