Wired Searches Out Roofie-Detection Devices
|Don't get roofied: Discreetly dip one of these in your cocktail.|
Did you know that rohypnol has been reformulated to turn drinks blue? (Hint: never accept a curaçao-tinted drink from strangers). Some of the protection devices are caps you clip on to the mouth of a bottle, while others resemble James Bond gadgets. There are coasters that turn color when wet with a roofie-spiked liquid, testing strips that fit inside a lip-gloss container, and tiny police-designed GHB tests. The first two seem simple enough to slip into a bag or pocket and use when drunk. Better still, if the test comes back negative you get to finish your free drink.
