Gamma-hydroxybutyrate is commonly referred to as GHB and is often found as a colourless, oily liquid. Some can find it in a powder form. It can be used to spike drinks and is often known as a “Date Rape Drug”. Victims are affected by the smallest amounts of GHB and it quickly dissolves into drinks. It often gives a drink an unpleasant taste but when used in small doses and mixed with strong flavours, it often goes unnoticed.
