    Whilst i totally agree that Drug Rape / Robbery is a despicable crime the test kits available can lead to confusing results. The range of drugs and the reange of drinks / mixers make the tests unreliable and you have to bear in mind that the dark environment mkes it difficult if not impossible to see.The better alternative is a barrier system on bottled drinks similar to a device i manufacture called ToppStoppa and this is under considerartion for a major trial in Blackpool by the gay barsBest regards John R Blundell

  2. This is after the drink has been spiked and it looks kinda weird to first test your drink and then take a sip. Its better to protect your drink so it can’t be spiked. There are simple and cheap ways to protect your beer of drink in a bottle like BottleCap that’s in use in Holland.
