Rohypnol is a powerful tranquilizer that depresses the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). Rohypnol is about 10 times more powerful than Valium. It is sold as a white or olive green, tasteless, pill. Rohypnol is usually sold in bubble packaging and medicine bottles.
Rohypnol is snorted, or swallowed as a pill that has been dissolved in a drink. It is mostly used in drinks that contain alcohol or it could be combined with other drugs. It is also used to mellow down heroin high’s and ease the experience of coming from a cocaine or crack high. “Roofies” produce distinction and amnesia, that’s why most of them are used as date rape drug by sex offenders. These cases happen when victim’s drinks are “spiked”.
