The Case Of The Date-Rape Drug

date rape drug

A date-rape drug also referred to as a predator drug, is any drug that is an incapacitating agent which, when administered to another person, incapacitates the person and renders them vulnerable to a drug-facilitated sexual assault; including rape. One of the most common types is those in which a victim consumes a recreational drug such as alcohol that was administered secretly.

You must have seen this in many movies. Picture this—there’s a party and a notorious boy mixes a pill in the glass of a pretty girl, then take her to a room and tries to sexually assault her.

I have seen this in many Bollywood movies. But how do I know so much? You have to read about my psychedelic journey before you read this article; to get an answer.

Date-rape drug is not something new but it’s used a lot nowadays; again. Many rape cases across the world have recorded the use of this drug. It’s dangerous and you have to know about it.

The most common date-rape drug is Rohypnol that is a tranquilizer. The drug is available as a white or olive-green pill and is usually sold in the manufacturer’s bubble packaging. Users crush the pills and snort the powder, sprinkle it on marijuana and smoke it, dissolve it in a drink or inject it. It has been used to commit sexual assaults because it renders the victim incapable of resisting, giving it the reputation of a date-rape drug.

The users of this date-rape drug often describe its effects as paralyzing. The effects start twenty to thirty minutes after taking the drug, peak within two hours and may persist for eight or even twelve hours. They lie on the floor, eyes open, able to observe events but completely unable to move. Afterward, memory is impaired and they cannot recall any of what happened.

Heard something like this before?

Date-rape drug is most dangerous when mixed with alcohol because the effects will come on slowly, giving the victim time to go well past their normal drinking limit. It could take twenty minutes or an hour, but with alcohol, the victim will eventually pass out.

This is how many sexual assaults begin. Additionally, it has almost no taste, and the white ones have no color. They have a soft, fine texture, so you can’t feel them in your mouth. Someone can grind one up in their hand, drop the powder into your drink, and you will not notice it.

But what most people don’t realize is that when it is combined with alcohol, people can forget several of the hours BEFORE ingesting the date-rape drug in addition to everything afterward. Victims often don’t remember the events leading up to an assault. In fact, there are probably many victims that will never even know that it happened.

Girls, beware of the sinister predators that can get you. I suggest to make your drinks yourself. If you suspect you were given this drug without your knowledge, get a drug test IMMEDIATELY.
