NO ! GHB was occasionally used as a "date rape" drug, but DEFINITELY not anywhere NEAR as often as ALCOHOL ! ! !
GHB, when properly used, was making people healthy, happy, productive, and getting them off dangerous prescription medications !
The HUGE concern about GHB began, not when it was sold in health food stores and being used primarily by bodybuilders and people who were on to it's healthful applications; it was targeted because suddenly OLDER PEOPLE who had been on multiple prescription medications no longer NEEDED them !
Like ALL drugs, the backlash against their proper positive uses was fueled by a notoriously corrupt media with ties to big industry/advertisers, with an agenda and interest in intentionally misinforming the public and securing the created dependency on the crap that their advertisers peddle.
Yes, GHB was AWESOME for getting a good night's sleep. But that is just a tiny part of the reason GHB was absolutely BELOVED by people using it regularly, in carefully measured doses, to improve overall health.
People were feeling younger, their skin was softer, their outlook on life better, they were more self aware more muscular, more healthy.
And we musn't have THAT when we have toxic drugs and terror and fear to peddle !
