The Rush after COVID-19

The Rush After COVID-19

Now that several states have lifted restrictions for restaurants to reopen, this means more and more people feel confident in going out.  

People have been cooped up since March and are excited to get out and enjoy celebratory drinks ! Lets face it, emotions and feelings have been confined for a long time and people are ready to see other people in person !

If you are planning on celebrating with drinks in public, please make sure to protect yourself with covering your glass when you leave to go to the restroom, are having conversation with others , or taking a phone call.  Any distraction that can take your attention away from your drink , allows someone watching you to take advantage of your uncovered glass.

The Wine Glass Topper / Drink Cover can help protect your drink and keep you safe!  Each topper is designed with a specific weight to fit securely on top of your drink, making it difficult for someone to remove and for wind to blow the topper away.  Carry them wherever you go ! Included with each topper is a sachet for easy carrying.

 An uncovered drink can have a dangerous outcome ! 

Date rape, also known as “drug-facilitated sexual assault,” is any type of sexual activity that a person does not agree to. It may come from someone you know, someone you may have just met, and/or someone you thought you trusted.  

Many of these drugs have no color, smell, or taste, and people often do not know that they’ve taken anything. Many times people who have been drugged (usually girls or women, but not always) are unable to remember what happened to them.

The most dangerous three :

1. Rohypnol (also known as roofies, forget-me-pill, and R-2) is a type of prescription pill known as a benzodiazepine - it's chemically similar to drugs such as Valium or Xanax, but unlike these drugs, it si not approved for medical use in this country. 

  • It has no taste or smell and is sometimes colorless when dissolved in a drink.
  • People who take it can feel very sleepy and confused and forget what happens after its effects kick in. 
  • It can also cause weakness and trouble breathing, and can make it difficult for those who have taken it to move their body.
  • The effects of Rohypnol can be felt within 30 minutes of being drugged and can last for several hours. 

The manufacturer recently changed the pill to look like and oblong olive green tablet with a speckled blue core.  When dissolved in light-colored drinks the new pills dye the liquid blue and alert people that their drink has been tampered with.  Unfortunately, generic versions of Rohypnol may not contain the blue dye.  

2. GHB (also known as cherry meth, scoop, and goop) is a type of drug that acts as a central nervous system depressant and is prescribed for the treatment of narcolepsy. 

  • It can cause a person to throw up; it can also slow their heart rate and make it hard to breathe. 
  • At high doses, it can result in a coma or death. 
  • It's a tasteless, odorless drug that can be a powder or liquid.  It's colorless when dissolved in a drink. 
  • Mixing it with alcohol makes these effects worse.

GHB can take effect in 15 to 30 minutes, and the effects may last for 3 to 6 hours. 

3. Ketamine (also known as cat valium, k-hole, and purple) is a dissociative anesthetic. That means it distorts perceptions of sight and sound, and makes a person feel detached from their environment and themselves. It also reduces pain and overall feeling. Like other anesthetic drugs, it's used during surgical procedures in both humans and animals. 

  • It's a tasteless, odorless drug that can be a powder or liquid.  
  • It can cause hallucinations and make people feel totally out of it.
  • It can also increase heartbeat, raise blood pressure, and cause nausea.
  • The effects of ketamine may last for 30 to 60 minutes. 

Please be aware of your surroundings and stay safe out there !
