Alcohol

Alcohol is one of the most dangerous date rape drugs. When people, (women specifically)consume too much alcohol, they can get taken advantage of. When too much alcohol n is consumed, it distorts the brain and its way of thinking. Some predators will usually push or try to get the girl they're victimizing to drink more and more so they will be less likely to engage in sexual activity.


Ketamine

Ketamine is a drug that is a powder or liquid and is very identical to Ruphies. It is tasteless and odorless and once the drug enters the system, there is no way to know that the person was drugged. If the dosage is big enough, the person drugged will fall asleep for hours or even for days until the drug wears off( depending upon how big of the dosage).


GHB

GHB is the one of the most recent date rape drugs. GHB is one of the easiest drugs to make and it looks just like water which makes it so dangerous. Some symptoms of Gamma Hydro are: loss of consciences, nausea, hallucinations, and amnesia.
