I Got that Aqua Dots

Oh Snap! Get that studio from Toys R Us.
Spin Master Aqua Dots can be arranged into designs and then fused together when sprayed with water... Scientists say a chemical coating on the beads, when ingested, metabolizes into gamma hydroxy butyrate, the so-called date rape drug. The compound can induce unconsciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma and death.
Before being known as the "date rape drug" it was commonly found in clubs known as Liquid X or Liquid ecstasy.
Since the 1970s club scene, club-goers have used a range of drugs to enhance their experience on the dance floor such as amyl nitrite "poppers" and cocaine; in the 1990s, newer "club drugs" became popular, such as ketamine and Ecstasy (MDMA). Like these other "club drugs," GHB is taken because users feel that it enhances the experience of being in a club or at a party; GHB is sometimes referred to as liquid ecstasy due to its tendency to produce euphoria and sociability and its use in the dance party scene.

The effects of GHB, however, are quite different from those of MDMA. At low doses, GHB can cause a state of euphoria, increased libido, increased sociability, and intoxication.

GHB is extremely dangerous because it can be easily overdosed on and as such fell out of favor.
