Ecstasy, Rohypnol, GHB, and Ketamine are among the drugs in Montana that are classified as "club drugs." Montana teens and other citizens usually take these drugs while attending nightclubs, bars or raves. Those who attend raves are usually attracted to the low cost, seemingly increased stamina, and intoxicating highs that come along with these club drugs.
Science is showing change to critical parts of the brain from use of these drugs most of them can cause a sharp increase in body temperature leading to muscle breakdown and kidney or cardiovascular system failure.
Some of Montana's "club drugs" include:
- Ecstasy - This club drug is a synthetic, psychoactive drug with both stimulant and hallucinogenic properties.
- Rohypnol, GHB & Ketamine - These club drugs are predominantly central nervous system depressants.
- Rohypnol, GHB, and Ketamine are often colorless, tasteless, and odorless, which means they can be added to beverages and ingested unknowingly.
- GHB has been abused in the U.S. for euphoric, sedative, and anabolic effects. Rohypnol has been of particular concern for the last few years because of its abuse in date rape.
- When mixed with alcohol, Rohypnol can prevent victims from resisting sexual assault.
- Certain doses of ketamine can cause dream-like states and hallucinations, and because of this, it has become common in club scenes or raves.
