New Invention Could Make College Parties Safer

benningtonalumni,flickr

Being in college, I do attend parties, and I have heard of this happening. It has even happen to a few friends of mine.

It may have happened to you or someone you know. Finally, the war against this practice is in full swing. Every year, an estimated 1 million people are date raped, and many of them are victims of date-rape drugs, potent mixtures that disrupt the central nervous system.

These drugs, often slipped into alcoholic beverages, can cause drowsiness, amnesia, and blackouts, and they’re incredibly difficult to detect. One startup company wants to change that.

The company, DrinkSavvy, is creating drinkware that changes color when date rape drugs are present, going from clear to red. Mike Abramson, DrinkSavvy’s founder, was inspired to create the cups after he himself was drugged.  The company also wants to create straws and other kinds of drinking apparatuses that can help with detection.
