About GHB (Gamma-Hydroxybutyric Acid)

What Is GHB?

GHB, commonly known as Georgia Home Boy, is a central nervous depressant that has a high potential for abuse due to its euphoric, anabolic, and sedative effects. Like Rohypnol, GHB is notorious as a date rape drug that is maliciously slipped into drinks. It either comes in the form of a white powder or a clear liquid that looks like water, and is mostly tasteless with a faint flavor of salt. As demonstrated in the true crime book Spiked: The Story of a Woman Drugged With Ghb and How She Was Turned Into a Criminal, this drug has the ability to severely impact those who consume it unkowingly.
