Rohypnol banner

Rohypnol (also called ruffies or the date rape drug) is often implicated in sexual assaults. This drug is sometimes used recreationally but isoften given to a person without his/her knowledge or consent. It is odorless and tasteless and can be easily dissolved in a drink. When administered, rohypnol can cause disinhibition, loss of consciousness, and the inability to remember events that took place while under the influence.
It is important to remember that if friends inadvertently consume one of these drugs, they may not realize it. Pay attention to your friends and get them to safety if you feel their behavior is not merely the result of their alcohol consumption. Remember that you and your friends need to watch out for each other in order to avoid consuming beverages that have been laced with dangerous substances.
