The powder, which comes mainly from Colombia, is blown at the face of a victim or placed in food or drink.
It works within minutes and is known for being used in robberies and sexual assaults as it causes victims to become helpless.
It also vanishes from the bloodstream after just four hours so is hard to detect.
As of yet, there have been no known cases of the drug reaching the U.S., but given the fact that it is sold online, it will probably be available
in a hood near you very soon.
The Medicina Clinica medical journal confirmed its first case in which the powder had been used after a 36 year old woman was rushed to the hospital. According to medical reports, the victim — who was slipped the drug by her boyfriend, was talking incoherently and suffering memory loss.
A Spanish health service spokesman said:
‘The fact that we have identified a person who has been drugged with it, suggests its use may be becoming more common in Spain and perhaps throughout Europe.’
