    I got this email from my friend who is also from vancouver..please read this:

    Important notice

    A woman at Gastown nightclub on Saturday night was taken by 5 men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her naked at Neutral Bay.
    Unable to remember the events of the evening, tests later confirmed the repeat rapes along with traces of rohypnol in her blood.

    Boyfriends, take heed. Good guys out there, please forward this message to your lady friends.

    Progesterexp, that is essentially a small sterilisiation pill.
    The drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape AND sterilize their victims.Progesterex is available to vets to sterilize large animals. Rumour has it that the Progesterex is being used together with Rohypnol, the date rape drug. As with Rohypnol, all they have to do is drop it into the girl's drink. The girl can't remember a thing the next morning, of all that had taken place the night before.

    Progesterex, which dissolves in drinks just as easily, is such that the victim doesn't conceive from the rape and the rapist needn't worry about having a paternity test identifying him
    months later. The drug's effects AREN'T TEMPORARY. Progesterex was designed to sterilize horses. Any female that takes it WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO CONCEIVE.
    The crooks can get this drug from anyone who is in the vet school of any university. It's that easy, and Progesterex is about to break out big on campuses everywhere. Believe it or not, there is even a site on the internet telling people how to use it.

    Please forward this to everyone you know, especially girls.

    They should have used a better name than Moe Mahjoub.

    Something like Dr. Jake Slazenger.

    Moe! Forgive me for doubting you!!!

    The Quamby lab, Simon Fraser and the medical community in general is a richer place for his involvment in it.

    Dr. Castigliano Bhamareepatta.

    Although I'm glad it's a hoax, still seems kinda sick to me that people would fabricate such a story. The only good that I would see coming out of it, is that chicks keep an eye on their drinks.

    Which BTW is something that bothers me. When I have to leave my drink on a table at a club. I just don't like it. I try as much as possible to leave it with a friend.

    To the ladies: DON'T LEAVE YOUR DRINKS ON THE TABLES BY THE RESTROOMS! LEAVE THEM WITH FRIENDS! It may seem overly precautious, but fuck! There are way too many sickos and too many fucked up things happening, to take chances. Guys, be gentlemen, hold the ladies' drinks.

    "DON'T LEAVE YOUR DRINKS ON THE TABLES BY THE RESTROOMS!"

    While it's not my intention to undermine the intent of this thread...don't believe the hype...more than 70% of sexual assault involves alcohol, so what's the real "rape drug":confused:

    seriously though...

    what's the deal with the so called 'date-rape drugs'?

    my roomate did a big paper last term for his criminology masters about how the date-rape drug phenomenon is largely a scare tactic perpetuated by the religious right and government groups to increase fear and male dependance in women.

    when i trained as a bar manager i was told that there has never been a documented case of rohypnol being slipped into a drink in canada.

    i know people who have been 'accidently' g'd, but usually through their own carelessness - picking up the wrong water bottle or asking somebody who was g'd out for water at a party (stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, always have your own water or share with a trusted friend). the cases that i know about have not involved any sort of sexual assualt.

    so what's the situation? has anybody heard of a documented case of a date rape drug being maliciously administered to somebody?

    i did a search for some statistics but only found page after page after page of scare tactic propaganda, outright lies, and misinformation from campus helath networks and US dept. of justice "fact" sheets.

    Excellent questions Rosey, I think you should email Dr. Moe or Dr. Heywood Jablome for the answers.

    Re: seriously though...

    Yes. A close relative of mine. She doesnt remember a damn thing. She went to the hospital afterwards, but I forget what she said they found. She is very traumatized about it so I dont feel like asking her. All I can tell you is yes, it does happen.

    <------ applauds ol'skool and rosey!!!!

    I agree Rosey, I think it is largely a scare tactic. But I do think it happens, albeit rarely. I say this because I work at a rape crisis centre and have come across a couple of people whose experiences were analogous with being drugged. Yes, there have been no documented cases, but we need to keep in mind that the vast majority of sexual assaults are unreported, and in the possible drugging incidents I know of, the survivors had no recollection of the event, so they weren't even sure if they were assaulted and were too afraid and ashamed to go to the police.

    All that being said, I really do think it's a scare tactic. Women are told to fear the stranger rapist lurking in the bushes and people slipping stuff in their drinks at clubs and augment their behaviour accordingly, when all statistics I have ever encountered plus my own personal experience at the crisis centre indicate that the vast majority of male on female sexual assaults are committed by someone the victim already knows and who has gained the woman's trust. Not to say that everyone should leave their drinks unattended and fear their male friends instead, but it is something that women could keep in mind when making assessments of the risk in their lives.

    Personally, I try to be prudent in my decisions, but I am not willing to allow fear rule my life, because to me that's not living.

    I still wonder how anyone can claim that GHB is tasteless. :barf:
