A new drug that creates the effects of a sedative is being smuggled from Mexico and into the hands of U.S. teen-agers, police and school officials said. The sedative's clinical name is Rohyponl and it is not legally for sale in this country, according to the Federal Drug Administration. Popularly known as Roche, the drug reportedly is being purchased over the counter in Mexicali, Mexico, although it is supposed to be sold with a doctor's prescription there.

Rapists who subdue their victims with Rohypnol or other "date-rape" drugs risk having up to 20 years added to their sentences under legislation sent to President Clinton on Friday. For the first time, the legislation makes it a crime to use a drug as a weapon. The House passed the bill by a voice vote, minutes before adjourning for the year. The Senate had approved the measure Thursday.
