BBC Says that Date Rape Drugs Are on the Rise

Andy Tighe, the Home Affairs Correspondent for BBC News, writes that “date rape drugs are on the rise.”

“The International Narcotics Control Board says tough measures against the best-known drug, Rohypnil, have worked. But sexual abusers are turning to alternative substances subject to less stringent international controls.”

  • Ketamine
  • Gamma-Butyrlactone
  • These drugs, like Rohypnil, will render a victim defenseless then likely wipe their brains of the attack afterward.

    Okay. So, there seems to be a continued and thriving market out there for drugging females, and males, into complete and total sexual submission. Times are hard, certainly, I’ll give them that, but that’s no reason to slight the victim. Its like experiencing fine dining service then stiffing the waitress or waiter, right? Since perpetrators and date rape drug dealers are so bent on turning a profit, getting serviced then acting like nothin’ happened, I figure it’s only fair for victims to get their cut up front. A lemonade stand ougtta do it.
