Clonazolam

It’s a triazolobenzodiazepine, it was prescribed for veterinary practices in some regions of Africa, but is now sold online as a designer drug. It’s considered Schedule 1 in Virginia and Louisiana, but in all the other states it’s classified as research. It has similar effects as a benzodiazepine but is much much stronger.

Where do people get it?

It’s not prescribed in the U.S. People are buying it online.

How it is dangerous?

It’s highly addictive, and when taken it can cause a large increase in seizures. The effects last longer than 24 hours. Research shows that people think they’re buying valium or Xanax but it’s Clonazolam. Gallus’ experience has been that the withdrawal is much longer and has significantly more detox symptoms than regular benzos.
