Police Issue Date Rape Drug Warning
(ksut) - Durango police say it appears someone is using illicit drugs to try and facilitate sexual assaults.
Several women have made statements to police describing feelings consistent with the use of so-called date rape drugs.
Those drugs, such as GHB and Rohypnol, can be surreptitiously slipped into alcholic drinks.
When consumed the mixtures induce various reactions ranging from euphoria and impaired motor skills to agitation, confusion, dizziness, amnesia and even death.
Police are warning people to not leave drinks unattended, accept drinks from strangers or drink anything with a strange taste, color or odor.
Anyone who starts to feel ill should seek medical attention.
