GHB is usually ingested orally, either in liquid or powder form, while
Rohypnol is typically taken orally in pill form. Recent reports, however, have

GHB also has anabolic effects (it stimulates protein synthesis) and has been
used by bodybuilders to aid in fat reduction and muscle building.
Ketamine is usually snorted or injected intramuscularly.
