WPIX-TV examines the ease with which many people can buy GHB, commonly known as the date rape drug. This investigation finds that "thousands of recorded overdoses and several deaths and 'date rapes' have resulted from the use in nightclubs and at parties of dangerous liquid chemical compounds, such as GHB. After several high profile arrests and a tragic nightclub death here in New York, we were still able to go into a drug store and buy this substance over the counter."
