Questions for medic's and health professionals?

If this is agaisnt tacomaworld's rules, then i'm sorry. This question is strictly for research purposes and not encouraging the use of drugs. I didn't find anything prohibiting it.

I'm doing a research paper on gammahydroxybutyric acid, and am stumped on on this. It is identified by the DEA as a schedule I drug stating it can be used as a date-rape drug, causing a depressed central nervous system and becoming not conscious. So with that being said, how, in the same schedule class, can it also be called a "party drug"? How can it enhance the experience of parties if it renders you not concious?

I'm just guessing cause I haven't heard of this drug, but it could be dose based. Take Gravol. Helps you sleep right? Take too much and it actually wires you like caffeine.

Ok thanks, that was my guess to it was dose based. Its known as GHB, common date-rape drug, thats why i am doing a research paper on it to raise awareness.

It's called a party drug because when you slip it into someones drink, they become so stupid they will do anything you want. It's a party for you, not the poor girl who wakes up raped and has little or no memory of what happened.

Gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB)

Slang or Street Names: Grievous Bodily Harm, G, Liquid Ecstasy, Georgia Home Boy

GHB can be produced in clear liquid, white powder, tablet, and capsule forms, and it is often used in combination with alcohol, making it even more dangerous. GHB has been increasingly involved in poisonings, overdoses, "date rapes," and fatalities. The drug is used predominantly by adolescents and young adults, often when they attend nightclubs and raves. GHB is often manufactured in homes with recipes and ingredients found and purchased on the Internet.

GHB is usually abused either for its intoxicating/sedative/euphoriant properties or for its growth hormone-releasing effects, which can build muscles.


Some individuals are synthesizing GHB in home laboratories. Ingredients in GHB, gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) and 1,4-butanediol, can also be converted by the body into GHB. These ingredients are found in a number of dietary supplements available in health food stores and gymnasiums to induce sleep, build muscles, and enhance sexual performance.


GHB is a central nervous system depressant that can relax or sedate the body. At higher doses it can slow breathing and heart rate to dangerous levels.


GHB's intoxicating effects begin 10 to 20 minutes after the drug is taken. The effects typically last up to 4 hours, depending on the dosage. At lower doses, GHB can relieve anxiety and produce relaxation; however, as the dose increases, the sedative effects may result in sleep and eventual coma or death.


Overdose of GHB can occur rather quickly, and the signs are similar to those of other sedatives: drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, headache, loss of consciousness, loss of reflexes, impaired breathing, and ultimately death.


GHB is cleared from the body relatively quickly, so it is sometimes difficult to detect in emergency rooms and other treatment facilities.
