Customs officers seize 120 pounds of date-rape drugs in Cincinnati


_________________________

CINCINNATI — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers discovered 120 pounds of the illegal date rape drug GBL, or gamma-butyrolactone.

Customs officials said the drugs were en route from China to an individual Ontario, Canada.

GBL is clear, odorless and tasteless, customs officials said. Its most common association is with sexual assault — victims are left unconscious with memory loss. It can also be used illegally as a bodybuilding supplement, a recreational drug, and to combat aging, depression, alcoholism, and insomnia.

Cincinnati customs have seized more than 680 pounds of GBL since April, officials said. The packages are usually imported from China, and are destined throughout the United States and other countries.
