We learn during our teenage years that no matter where you are whether it be a party or a bar, you are to never to pick up your drink and continue drinking once you have walked away from it. Date rape continues to be a very problematic issue in society today and strides are being made to help combat this problem. According to a video from Inside Edition, three high school students have invented a way for people to detect the most common date rape drugs. Victoria Roca, Susana Cappello, and Carolina Biagorri came up with the idea of a straw detector because of how problematic sexual assault has become in society.

According to the high school students, in the case that a drink has been spiked, once the straw is inserted into the drink the bottom of the straw will turn blue revealing the presence of a date rape drug. The high school inventors plan to market their straws which are currently patent pending and hope to one day make them available to college students and supply them at bars, clubs and restaurants.
