Rohypnol Information

Most commonly known as the "Date Rape Drug", Rohypnol is a tranquilizer similar to Valium, only ten times stronger. It is illegal to posses Rohypnol, but it is commonly used in bars and clubs. The drug is dropped in the victim's drink and its ingestion leaves the victim completely susceptible to an assault. The victim is left with partial to complete amnesia in regards to the assault but is aware that he/she has been assaulted.
