Roseville detectives were looking into regional sales of the synthetic narcotic drug, that gave people similar effects as the so-called "date-rape drug" GHB. The drug was cited often, according to police, in sexual assaults, DUIs and overdose cases.

According to Roseville Police Lieutenant Josh Simon, a water bottle cap-full could cause someone to black out.
