Drink Coasters Can Test for Date-Rape Drugs

Drink Coasters Can Test for Date-Rape Drugs

Drink coasters at several North Texas bars can test for substances such as GHB and ketamine.

One of the coasters played a role in the arrest of a reserve Dallas police officer who is accused of spiking women's drinks at a Greenville Avenue bar.

Police said a bartender at the Sugar Shack saw reserve Officer Brad Hellums put something in two women's drinks. The bartender then went across the street to the Whiskey Bar to get one of the Drink Safe coasters, providing police with evidence, said bar manager Neil Ludwig, who runs several bars that use the coasters.

They can test a drink for substances such as GHB and ketamine, two popular "date-rape" drugs.

"It tells you that there is something foreign in that drink that shouldn't be there," said Dennis Burns of Drink Safe Texas, which makes them.

Testing a drink is simple. The coaster has colored dots on the corners that change color if the drink is spiked.

"And you can do that with your finger in the drink or the straw," Burns said.

The Sugar Shack now uses the coasters.

Establishments that offer them have a sign on the door to let people who might try to spike drinks know that there's a better chance they'll be caught.

"We want our customers to feel safe when they go out to drink," Ludwig said. "We want them to feel like it's secure and safe in our establishment."

The coasters cut into profits by about 40 cents each, but Ludwig said they are worth it.

"It's not a cheap thing for us to do, but we want our customers to feel safe," he said.

Drink Safe Texas also sells caps you can carry in your pocket to cover a beer bottle when it's unattended, as well as pocketsize drink testers such as the coasters that can be carried in a purse.

If a woman pulled out one of those "coasters" to test a drink Id bought for em, id feel really offended.

Only saying that because I wouldnt slip something in their drink.
Now thats just being desperate.

This seems pretty ineffective in practice... By the time you start noticing you aren't just drunk it's probably too late anyway. :sun:

ketamine? are people that fucking stupid to think that someone can be date raped with special K? just because its an anesthetic in very high doses.

If someone that was drinking was "slipped" some K in a high enough dose to render them unable to resist rape, they would sure as fuck taste it on the first sip.

Yeah, I'd take my drink back and down it, and be like "bitch.  You lost a free drink."

Why not put it on a toothpick instead? That way, it's discreet - I see people poking at cocktails with toothpicks all the time.

If they were standard service at the bar and not on request I can see it being alot more practical and less offensive.

I'm stoned, and I thought the title was a reference to Coaster when I first saw it.  Then when I realized it was just a coincidence I laughed and predicted Coaster would post in this thread.  That was fun. 

Plus this topic is just hilarious to me.  You get the proverbial cop getting caught trying to rape, but the twist is it was their own new cool little tool that catches him.  IDK, it's just cliche shroomery news service, but it's so good.  :grin:

They're in a bar, getting drunk with strange men.

If they're not interested in the first place, they shouldn't attract the attention of onlookers, and shouldn't accept the drink.

Drugging cheap women shouldn't have to be a consideration.
