GHB: the Dietary Supplement-Turned Date Rape Drug

GHB, also known as gamma-hydroxybutanoic acid, is a central nervous system depressant naturally present in small amounts in humans. GHB has a history of use as a general anesthetic, and was commissioned for the treatment of insomnia, depression, and alcoholism. Once marketed as a dietary supplement, GHB was taken off the U.S. market in 1990, citing safety concerns. GHB is a highly addictive substance, and persons with an addiction to GHB often require detox at hospitals and rehab centers. For everyone from bodybuilders in Irvine, Calif. to college students at fraternity parties, GHB is a dangerous drug capable of rendering its victims vulnerable and defenseless.Facts-about-GHB
