Washington- The government is warning consumers not to use a list of liquid products touted as providing a "safe legal high," because they actually may contain some risky chemicals - including a date-rape drug.

On the warning list: Trip2Night, Invigorate II, Snuffadelic, Liquid Speed, Solar Wa ter, Orange Butterfly, Schoomz and Green Hornet Liquid.

The Food and Drug Administration first warned against Green Hornet in February, after four Colorado teenagers used it and suffered seizures, racing heartbeat, body rashes and high blood pressure.

Although the bottles listed a variety of herbal ingredients, the FDA's analysis uncovered two drugs - diphenhydramine and dextromethorphan, ingredients often used in over-the-counter cold medicines.

The FDA then analyzed other products sold by the same company and announced Friday that investigators had found additional chemicals: ephedrine and the controlled substances GHB, also known as the date-rape drug, and a GHB derivative called GBL.

Those chemicals can cause life- threatening reactions.

The FDA has been investigating a Tampa, Fla., company, Cytotec Solutions, which made the products.

The company has gone out of business.

"They pose a hazard," said David Elder, director of the FDA's enforcement office.

"The levels of drug products found in these products concern us. Kids are not necessarily consuming a capful or teaspoon or sip of this. They could take a couple of swigs and pass the bottle to their friends."

The products were sold on the Internet and in stores as dietary supplement alternatives to illegal street drugs.

It is illegal for dietary supplements to contain drugs, or to be marketed in that manner.

Im glad that company went out of buissness, some of thoose products were wack. Teh green hornet combined dxm and diphen together in one dose. Another had ghb in it! Wether ghb should be legal or not isn't the issue. Selling an illegal substance online is freakin retarded.
