Milwaukee Rohypnol Defense Lawyers
Rohypnol, or Flunitrazepam, was originally used to treat patients suffering from insomnia, however the FDA has not approved the drug for medical use, making it illegal. Commonly known as the “date rape drug,” Rohypnol is an incredibly potent drug that acts as a powerful sedative, muscle relaxant, and reduces anxiety. Effects of the drug appear close to 15 minutes after swallowed and last up to 6 hours.
While it has been illegal to possess or distribute Rohypnol in the United States since 1999, the drug is still in use in other countries and is often smuggled into the U.S.
Charges for Rohypnol could fall under any of the following topics:
Simple possession of the “date rape drug” could result in up to 3 years in prison and a large fine. Distribution and use of the drug to cause harm to other people is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and large fines.
