This hour-long training telecast will explore the illicit world of GHB (Gamma-hydroxybutyrate) drug trafficking, use and abuse. GHB is classified as a sedative-hypnotic and/or a central nervous system depressant. It produces euphoria, intoxication and hallucinations with alcohol like effects. Because it produces such a rapid progression from drowsiness to sleep, it is often used as a “date-rape” drug. The program will focus on GHB trafficking, “date-rape” case studies, and GHB on the Internet. It will also cover the use, abuse, addiction and the pharmacological effects of the drug and what law enforcement officers need to know to recognize the indicators that a suspect is high on GHB. The program will also include a segment on Rave and Club Drugs — particularly Ecstasy — how to recognize the indicators and hear one mother’s story of how an experiment with Ecstasy cost her high school son his life.
