Two men were arrested for allegedly peddling the "date-rape" drug GHB on the Net. Sixty-three year old Carl Gorton from Florida and John Hedrick, 22, were collared by state authorities in Michigan and could face up to 30 years in jail if found guilty, according to a report by the Associated Press. The pair was arrested for selling the ingredients and kits to make the GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate) drug. The "G-WiZzZzZ" kits retailed for $200 each and were so easy to use even a child could have made the drug with little effort, it was reported. GHB is one of a number of synthetic drugs used by rapists to render their victims unconscious before assaulting them. The drug is both tasteless and odourless, and leaves the victim with no memory of the crime. Earlier this month it was reported that a Californian date-rape gang was broadcasting videos of its "conquests" on the Net after drugging their victims with the sedative Rohypnol. ® See earlier story:Date rape gang circulates videos on the Internet
