DrinkSavvy: Innovative Product Line Focused On The Prevention Of Date Rape

For the past couple of decades, women have been warned about the risks of leaving their drinks unattended at parties and bars.

While women can of course try and keep an eye on their beverages, those that really want to find a way to slip a date rape drug into a drink have developed sneaky ways of accomplishing their mission.
