Needle spiking

Needle spiking is a phenomenon initially reported in the UK and Ireland where people, usually young women, have found themselves apparently subjected to surreptitious injection of unidentified sedative drugs, usually in a crowded environment such as the dancefloor of a nightclub, and producing symptoms such as sedation and amnesia typical of date rape drugs. No verified toxicological results have been published showing the presence of known incapacitating agents in alleged victims; the prevalence of genuine cases is unknown and has been controversial, with some experts expressing doubts as to how easily such injections could be carried out without it being immediately obvious to the victim.
