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.
