Rohypnol has recently gained a reputation as the “date rape” drug. ​Rohypnol is also known as roofies, the forget pill or rope. The drug creates a sleepy, relaxed, and drunk feeling that lasts 2 – 8 hours. “Roofies” are often used in combination with alcohol and other drugs. When use​d in
combination with alcohol “roofies” produces disinhibition and amnesia.

Rohypnol has been misused. As a result, the drug cannot be purchased legally in Canada or United States.

How Can You Protect Yourself From Rohypnol?

Obviously, education is the most important tool for protecting yourself ​or someone you know from Rohypnol.

Known to cause temporary amnesia, muscle relaxation, sleep, and to impair motor skills.

When Rohypnol is added to alcohol it should leave a bitter taste, should turn a light-colored drink blue, and should leave small chunky pieces in your drink. Moreover, a typical Rohypnol victim will:

  • ​​Feel dizzy and disorientated about 10 minutes after ingesting the drug.
  • The victim may experience difficulty speaking and moving and then pass out.
  • A Rohypnol victim should not be left alone. A good friend should stay with the victim keeping a caring eye on him or her.

The drug can be detected up to 3 days after ingestion. The most important way to protect yourself is by following this basic rule: Never accept a drink from someone you don’t know, and never leave your drink unattended.
