The party drug GHB is no longer legal in the Netherlands. It is now officially on the list of hard drugs.
The decision to add GHB to the list of prohibited drugs was made last September by Health Minister Edith Schippers and has now officially confirmed by the Public Prosecution Service on Monday.
GHB (gamma hydroxybutyric acid) is a liquid drug, which is used primarily by clubgoers. In recent years, more and more serious health incidents involving GHB have been making headlines across the Netherlands. The drug gives you a euphoric feeling, but poses a major health risk.
