Drink spiking is a serious issue that affects individuals of all ages and genders, and it is a crime that involves the surreptitious addition of drugs to someone's drink with the intent of incapacitating them. According to a study published in the Journal of Analytical Toxicology, GHB and ketamine are two of the most commonly used drugs in drink spiking incidents. In fact, a report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) states that in 2019, there were more than 11,000 emergency department visits related to GHB, and over 37,000 emergency department visits related to ketamine.
GHB, also known as gamma-hydroxybutyric acid, is a central nervous system depressant that can cause drowsiness, confusion, and loss of consciousness. Ketamine, on the other hand, is a dissociative anesthetic that can cause hallucinations, disorientation, and memory loss. Both drugs are highly dangerous and can have severe and long-lasting effects on a person's physical and mental health.
To protect yourself from drink spiking, it is essential to be vigilant and aware of your surroundings, especially when you are in a social setting. However, it is also important to have a reliable means of detecting these drugs in your drink. This is where RaveRite's DrinkGuard testing strips come in.
Our company, RaveRite, offers DrinkGuard testing strips that can quickly and easily detect the presence of GHB and ketamine in drinks. These strips are easy to use and can provide results in just a few minutes. All you have to do is place a drop from the drink on the two application areas of the test strip and wait for the results. If the strip turns blue or orange, DO NOT DRINK as the presence of GHB or ketamine has been detected.
Not only do DrinkGuard testing strips provide peace of mind, but they can also serve as a deterrent for would-be drink spikers. Simply having a testing strip on hand can make it less likely for someone to try and spike your drink in the first place.
In conclusion, GHB and ketamine testing strips are a valuable tool in the fight against drink spiking. By using RaveRite's DrinkGuard testing strips, you can protect yourself and your loved ones from the harmful effects of drink spiking. So, be sure to grab a pack of DrinkGuard before you head out to your next party or event.
