quote of the day

More and more sex crimes involving date rape drugs occur because ordinary people are left defenseless while perpetrators have easy access to online information about the drugs. All people, including police and hospital staff, should be properly educated about the problem.

In Amerika they would get sued for each extra word available online, and I guess it is a good thing because less scum has access to personal or important information. Otherwise ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) this happens. They should be more careful with patients information, the lose screws roaming the streets out there can misuse almost anything there is.

I fear that highlighting the problem to the locals is more likely to result in an influx of creeps trying their luck.

"common sense " is still available to anyone. That can still save a lot of people from a lot of harm

What is " common sense " ??? Just look around and you see reality

Japan is believed to be a safe place, but if it is because the numbers are chosen and set for this public result, it is time for the japaneese people to learn about the lie.

"Common sensr" is then not to be as trusting in the man you date as usual, and not go out with short skirt at night.

"Common sense" is the man view of sex rape and not the woman point of view that don't understand rape and all the grey middle grounds about it, that you should call "rape".

It about buying your own drink and understand that "rape drug" are found easily, and it is about giving to those drugs their real name and not let the public believe it is just your usual drugs that will make an addict become violent. The "rape drug" is for the victim and not the rapist. The rapist is not the drug user.

"College student develops napkin that detects date rape drugs in drinks"

https://wsvn.com/news/us-world/college-student-develops-napkin-that-detects-date-rape-drugs-in-drinks/

The napkin can reportedly detect commonly-used date rape drugs by putting a drop of the liquid onto the napkin. A change in color indicates the presence of drugs in the drink.

“Napkins are always around alcohol. They are always in bars and clubs and we’re working to have them integrated into fraternities, social events and social organizations,” Sherman said. “They’re also easy to carry around in either a pocket or purse so they’re very portable and can be taken anywhere so if you’re uncomfortable, you’re able to take it out and use it at your own discretion.”

Sherman said she hopes to officially launch KnoNap by the end of 2018, selling it to bars and drink places
