Cups Detect Date Rape Drugs

It’s that time of year again, the school year is right around the corner and everyone is looking forward to “welcome week” at their college campus.  With all the drinking and partying that goes on, Drinksavy is giving students one less thing to worry about, spiked drinks.

In 90% of sexual assault cases on campus, alcohol is involved and, sometimes, more than just alcohol. Date rape drugs have been a source of anxiety for not only students, but parents as well, as their tasteless, odorless character makes them undetectable in drinks.

Drinksavy is trying to combat them as they plan to ship out their first set of drug-detecting cups and straws. The cups are sensitive to the most common forms of date-rape drugs- GHB, Rohypnol and Ketamine – and turn red in response to their presence.

Drinksavy hopes that college campuses will use their products in future programs about rape awareness and prevention.
