IT’S MIDNIGHT.
DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR CUP IS?

Whether you’re lying on the beach, at a party, or relaxing after a long day, it’s important that you keep an eye on your drink.

If you don’t, you could become a victim of "date rape drugs" like Rohypnol.

What is Rohypnol?
Rohypnol, the "date rape drug," is being used because of its sedative and hypnotic effects. The drug is odorless, colorless, and tasteless. It is often put into drinks of victims who unknowingly succumb to muscle relaxation and amnesia, making them prime targets for sexual assault and rape.

What does Rohypnol look like?
Rohypnol tablets are white and scored on one side and may be printed with the word "ROCHE." The tablets can be dissolved in a drink and the drug is then undetectable.

What symptoms occur if you have ingested Rohypnol?
Ten minutes after ingesting the drug, the victim will feel dizzy and disoriented. The victim may also experience sensations of nausea, being too hot, or being too cold. The victim will encounter trouble speaking and moving. Finally, the victim will lose consciousness.

How can you avoid being a victim of "date rape drugs"?

Everyone is not drinking and using other drugs.
