N.M. May Tighten GHB Laws

From the University of New Mexico Daily Lobo:
Legislation passed in the New Mexico House and Senate would make it a crime to distribute or possess date rape drugs if Gov. Bill Richardson signs the bill.

The bill makes it a crime to distribute common date rape drugs such as gamma hydroxybutyric acid and flunitrazepam, or "roofies," with the intent of committing a crime without the recipient's knowledge.

"It protects the victim who unwillingly and unknowingly received one of these from somebody who had evil intentions," said state Rep. Eric Youngberg, who introduced the bill.
