GHB and Meth: More Accessible, More Dangerous

A story in the Kansas City Star this past weekend highlights the growing threat of GHB to young people. GHB, long characterized as a date-rape drug, is growing in popularity with young people and athletes. Gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB), is a central nervous system depressant, that when taken in small doses can produce a high akin to drinking five beers very quickly with a trace of PCP.

Kansas law enforcement recently raided a loft and found a GHB manufacturing operation, leading them to believe that the drug is much more pervasive than originally thought.

This news comes right on the heels of a warning s about a new form of methamphetamine production that has been dubbed “shake-and-bake meth.” The new method is much easier than traditional meth production and only requires a soda bottle, a handful of cold pills, and a few other chemicals. It’s much easier to hide and cheaper to produce.

Some information for parents:
GHB is a clear, odorless liquid. When stored in a plastic bottle in a freezer, the liquid will not freeze. Users tend to experience heightened anxiety, mood swings, severe headaches, and insomnia.

Meth is usually in a clear rock form, but can be in powder of liquid form as well. Users tend to experience increased violent behavior, irritability, nervousness, and insomnia.
