I took out the part about GHB and Rohypnol being date rape drugs as it has nothing to do with anything and Rohypnol isn't even a club drug to begin with - it's a benzodiazepan pharmaceutical that's hardly associated with clubs and discos!
Also took out the "could be called a 'designer drug'" bit because that (and, frankly, so is date-rape-drug) is not a real pharmaceutical category in any meaningful or helpful sense. It's more of a popular media buzzword. I also added a couple of examples of club drugs and their general effects.
I just made a pretty major revision it needs checked over and cited however especially in regard to actual usage patterns. I think my change is useful however in pointing out how misleading the term club drug is.
It also looks like some one should do some research into the history of the term club drug as it is now used. Lonjers 20:31, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
Where are we going with this? A club drug is what they call drugs people tend to use in clubs, mostly pills. What else needs to be done? I mean, can we transwiki to wikitionary or merge somewhere useful? 126.96.36.199 04:47, 4 July 2006 (UTC)
I am thinking about reverting to July 19th because the recent edits seems to come from bad sources and are not directly related to the article. Any objections or other ideas. Lonjers 20:23, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
HI Alanaparker97. Welcome to Wikipedia! One of the pillars of Wikipedia is that information should be verifiable (WP:V) so we need to provide reliable sources for the information we add. It looks like you're sourcing your information from some government agencies which are probably reliable sources. I don't think the parenthetical references are enough for the average reader to identify the source. Could you add more identifying information? Wikipedia has citation templates in the editor you can use (Cite -> Template -> select source type from menu). Even placing some additional info in some reference tags after a statement would help (<ref>Citation information in here</ref>). Otherwise if you post links and or more information about your sources here I can format them for the article. Sizeofint (talk) 16:37, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks! Stashing these here until they can be incorporated into the article. Sizeofint (talk) 17:01, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
