Keep Your Alcohol Pure and Date-Rape-Drug Free

There is a new “public service” advertising campaign in Texas called “Criminal Cocktails” – designed to teach young women to “watch their drinks.” Apparently, the fear is that they might get something (such as GHB or rohypnol, I guess) slipped into their drinks that’ll put them at risk of rape or other bad situations. The underlying assumption seems to be that women should make sure their alcoholic drinks are unadulterated – as if that way, no one can take advantage of them, hurt them, or put them in otherwise sketchy scenes doing something they would never dream of otherwise.

Could that concept be any more absurd? No drug in human history has facilitated more rape, violence, murder, death and other horrors than alcohol. Nothing even comes close. So yeah, kids – play it safe – and don’t let anyone screw with your booze!!
