Information on GHB Aston PA

First used as an anesthetic in the 1960s, GHB later was used as a bodybuilding supplement because of its alleged anabolic effects. In the last 10 years, it’s become a recreational drug, available as a powder for snorting or smoking and as a liquid for drinking or adding to another drink. The highly concentrated liquid is usually sold in small plastic bottles for about $10. A bottle contains 9 or 10 “hits” of a capful each.

Her friends told the paramedics that Ms. Walters had been drinking alcohol and something called liquid X, which you recognize as a street name for gammahydroxybutyrate (GHB), also called liquid ecstasy.
