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!

they got their names at clubs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.63.99.219 (talk) 16:02, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

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? 66.41.66.213 04:47, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Revert[edit]

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)
