G, fantasy, liquid ecstasy 

Gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB) was originally synthesised for use as an anaesthetic. Gamma-Butyrolactone (GBL) is a more potent version of GHB. It usually comes as a clear liquid with a bitter aftertaste, but can also be a white powder or a bright blue liquid known as blue nitro. It is usually swallowed as a liquid or mixed in a drink and is uncommon in New Zealand.
