Sup Travellers?! You can never be too safe especially as a woman. I'm not a woman but it is a hardcore fact that men are the NUMBER ONE threat to women.Men are number one cause of injury and mayhem to women. I'm not just making this up. Louis CK said it so it has to be true [LOL].
Women are at risk every time they go out but despite that they still muster up the courage to go out which to me is bravery 101.
A woman can get roffied at a bar super easily without her even knowing.
Roofies, or Rohypnol, is an incredibly powerful drug. According to Brown University, is “a sedative in the same recreational drug family as GHB and ketamine and the same prescription drug family as Valium, Halcion, Xanax, and Versed.”
Its effects include slurred speech, impaired judgment, and difficulty walking. It can take effect in as little as 10 minutes and last anywhere from 8-12 hours.
What’s worse is rohypnol is colorless, odorless and tasteless, making it the perfect drug for would-be criminals.
The stats on how many people are drugged each year are slim, though one New York Magazine story did dig up a statistic found in the Annals of Emergency Medicine that suggested “drug-facilitated sexual assault is on the rise in New York. The study found that the number of sexual assault victims who had been drugged more than doubled (from 8 percent to 18 percent) between 2002 and 2008 in the New York metro area.”
So what can you do? Never accept drinks from strangers, never leave a drink alone, always rely on the buddy system and share this videos with your friends to make sure they stay diligent. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
