When we went out or stayed in, the rule was "never leave your drink unattended" but I also know that drinks have been spiked by so-called "friends."  YIKES.

Now they are working on developing cups and straws which will alert you right away if someone spikes your drink with a date-rape drug.  Those drugs don't have a taste or an odor, but the cups are very accurate at detecting them.  I would be happy to pay extra for this peace of mind as my big kids will be socializing soon, but I find it very sad that this happens so frequently that there seems to be a need for these products!!!!
