Date rape is a serious problem particularly in college and university campuses. This is a a good way to keep women safe and I don't think it would cost a lot too.

Smart Straw detects common date rape drugs in drinks. The tube features two chemical test strips that turn navy blue when they come in contact with substances frequently used for “drug-facilitated sexual assault” like GHB and Ketamine.

Smart Straws are easy to carry and inexpensive to produce. Plus, they’re super accessible for bars, sororities and fraternities, and other student organizations to stock and hand out.

This is a great invention. Not only would it discourage date rape drugs but it would also inspire teens to come up with something useful.

Miami-based high school students Carolina Baigorri, Susana Cappello, and Victoria Roca want to help people “gain more awareness of their surroundings” at a bar or party, consuming alcoholic or nonalcoholic drinks that's why they invented this.

If teens used their time for things like this, the world would be a better place. These women are commendable. I wish there were more of them.

I also read somewhere that there was a battery operated gadget that tests drinks for date rape drugs but that might be more expensive than this. This seems more affordable.

This would lower the date rape at social scenes. Women get victimized and it's about time that something like this be used to protect themselves.

I am so grateful for this. I've always been paranoid about getting something in my drink for the longest time. You just can't tell if someone puts something in your drink.
