Rohypnol or Roofies Drug Facts
Would you recognize the drug Rohypnol (roofies) if you saw it? Rohypnol is sometimes called the "date rape drug" because a person who takes the drug may be incapacitated and also unable to recall events which occurred under the influence of the drug. While Rohypnol used to be manufactured as a white pill, which could be crushed and dissolved in a liquid such that it was invisible, the drug is now supplied as a green tablet that contains a blue dye. The dye is intended to be visible if an attempt is made to dissolve the drug in a drink, though obviously the color wouldn't be noticeable in a blue or dark-colored beverage.
I've added some quick facts about Rohypnol to my drug facts index so you can learn more about this drug and also see what it looks like.
