It’s really tragic that sometimes girls after having a small drink, unexpectedly get out of control and some evil minded guys take the advantage of that situation and assault (rape) them. The incidence of ‘not in control’ usually happens when something (drugs, tablet etc) is mixed in that drink. So is there any way to know that whether the drink in a glass is safe to drink or not before drinking? Yes! DrinkSavvy(TM) founder Mike Abramson, in collaboration with Dr. John MacDonald and Contract Researching Organizations is developing a material that will immediately change the color of the drink if there is any drug into that drink.
Within 3 years, Abramson’s 3 close friends were victimized (raped) due to drinking drug mixed drink. It has been found that ‘date drugs’ (GHB, Ketamine, Rohypnol) become odorless, colorless, and tasteless when they are mixed into a drink. So, Mike Abramson decided to find out a way so that this type of incidence never happens to anyone else. Abramson’s established DrinkSavvy(TM), with the help of Dr. John MacDonald, a professor of chemistry at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and with the help of Contract Researching Organizations, is developing a material that will change the color of a drug-mixed drink. Drug-mixed drink can be detected through Plastic Straws and Stirrers, Plastic Party Cups, and Glassware (see above picture). In other words, if there is any drug mixed in to the drink, the color of cup or straw or glass will change.
DrinkSavvy will promote Plastic Straws and Stirrers, Plastic Party Cups, and Glassware to bars, clubs, and colleges after making. So far I know, DrinkSavvy is the first one to take such initiatives. No doubt, it will prevent girls from possibly being the victim of drug-facilitated sexual assault. You can get more update from DrinkSavvy’s website, Facebook, and Twitter.
