While under the effects of rohypnol could someone be "brainwashed" or persuaded to participate, act, or believe in things that their normal character or personality would not? Would this persuasion of out-of-character beliefs stay after the effects have worn off?
I get the feeling that there is a lot more to this question than you have shared. Therefore, I will say only that the effects of rohypnol are not long-lasting, but the damage that can be done if someone is taken advantage of while under the influence can be devastating, Please, it is important to find an adult you can talk to -- a doctor, counselor, teacher or parent -- to help you make sense of whatever has happened.
