Discussion Instructions For this discussion, please answer the following question.A company out of Lexington, Alabama (Drink Safe Technology) has created a line of productsto combat the practice of date rape. The products are either coasters or a personal drink kit (about the size of a credit card) that a person can use to test their drink to see if it contains one of the major date rape drugs. There arespots on the card/coaster, and a person simply places a drop or two of the drink on the spot and if it contains one of the main date rape drugs, the spot willchange colors, indicating the drink is not safe to consume.
They are primarilyavailable on college campuses and bars. What are your thoughts on this issue? Do you think the creation of this line of products will deter an offender from spiking a drink? Would you consider using this product or recommend it to a friend? Should bars have to provide these to their patrons to ensure safety in drinks? If so, who should pay the costs of them…the bar or the patrons by increasingthe price of drinks? Would you trust the results of such a product…if it says the drink is safe, would you still drink it? In general, what do you think of this product?
Check out their website for more info on this product.http://www.drinksafetech.com/index.htm
