You can get drugged going downtown, especially if you're a girl.
Most people drug others in order to lower their inhibitions so they can take that person home and have their way with them.
To say it's a pathetic move by a desperate guy is putting it lightly. And it happened to my friend last night, and it's happened to some of my friends before. Be careful.
Two simple rules can help you avoid getting drugged while you're downtown drinking yourself into a stupor anyway:
1) Don't leave your drink unattended
2) Don't accept open drinks from people you don't know (besides the bartender, of course)
That's it. You'll probably never get drugged if you follow those 2 simple rules. So do it.
And on a sidenote, if you're a guy who likes to go out and take advantage of drunk girls - or worse - try to slip some GHB, Special K, or roofies into girls drinks and I catch you, you had better hope we aren't alone.
Graduation is tomorrow so I expect downtown to be pretty busy. I'll tell you all about it soon.
