The most common date rape drug is alcohol.

Other drugs are GHB, Rohypnol, and Ketamine. These drugs are powerful and dangerous. They can easily be slipped into a drink as they often have no smell, taste, or color. After ingesting the drug, you may feel weak, confused, and may lose memory of what happens following ingestion. People who are given date rape drugs often pass out and are unable to defend themselves. Date rape drugs are used on both males and females.
