hey vg… you are right but it is definately not always the case. Its one of those things that needs to be carefully reviewed on a case by case basis.

My favourite question.

Do you think it was the 52nd or 53rd Bourbon and Coke that was spiked?

Many ‘spikings’ are just little ladies who eaither can’t handle their grog, or are looking for some sort of excuse when they lob in at mum and dad’s after a night out at 10am, instead of the 2am they expected

Never let the apple with the worm ruin your thoughts about the fruit on the rest of the tree…

The ultimate cause is good. But Thumper summarises my point. I have seen many a lady get pissed as a newt in a Canberra nightclub. I doubt drink spiking with illegal drugs has anything to do with it.

Perhaps you should pop along and support the cause the cause Pandy. You might even be given a few minutes to jump on your soap box and have a go…

As I see it, the night is supporting a group of people who do great work in providing support and advice for those individuals who really do need all the help they can get. That in my mind is worth more than $15 and a few beers.

I have always wondered if drink spiking, although real and utterly deplorable, has become an excuse for getting simply blotto and not remembering a thing the next morning.

God knows, I’ve had many, many nights whereafter I’ve woken up without any idea what happened.

That was from consumption of copious amounts of alcohol.

Having said that, an awareness campaign in a pub as such is a worthy cause.

I may even get the chance to drop by one night.

it is safe to say that the drink spiking thing became inflated through viral email… I have heard of a few genuine cases thoug. regardles raping someone whether via drink spiking or just taking advantage of them when they are too drunk is still abhorrent.

It seems that research in Australia and OS says that drink spiking is not the problem. It is having too many drinks or having double shots of drinks that are the problem.

Maybe awarness of responsible drinking should be done.

good cause!!
