Clonazolam is a research chemical (RC) benzodiazepine. Though it was synthesized in the 1970s, it was never brought to market and it has only been used as an RC since the mid-2000s.
It’s a very potent substance, surpassing most benzodiazepines. Due to its potency and strength, it’s often been associated with amnesia and unconsciousness. Those risks exist with all drugs in the class, but the way people use clonazolam makes it more likely they’ll encounter a problem.
Many of the issues with the drug can be blamed on inappropriate dosing. Users believe the common dose is higher than it is and vendors sell products that are too strong. If you stick to a true light/common dose, most of the major concerns won’t apply.
Correction: Clonazolam is Schedule 9, not Class C, in Australia.

The Drug Classroom (TDC) is dedicated to providing the type of drug education everyone should have. Drugs are never going to leave our society and there has never been a society free from drugs.
Therefore, it only makes sense to provide real education free from propaganda.
TDC doesn’t advocate drug use. Rather, we operate with the intention of reducing the harm some substances can bring.
Feel free to ask questions!
