Weapon of Choice

Posted by on October 20 at 7:43 AM

The last time I heard a story about a woman getting her drink drugged was a couple years back-but it was straight from someone who was the victim of such a lame (and dangerous) maneuver, so it couldn’t hurt to pass along this anonymous email I got this week.

Hey, I’m a woman who goes out to a lot of rock shows here in town, and lately I have heard a few stories about women being slipped date-rape drugs at shows. It’s something that seems to go around from time to time… Could you possibly mention something in your column about this? Maybe a warning not to take a drink from a stranger, unless you’ve seen it come directly from the bartender’s hands? I’ve seen women get really dangerously sick from date rape drugs in the past, and I hate to think that they’re on the scene again. Thanks, and you be careful, yourself. —A Friend—
