Each year in the UK, hundreds of people are victims of drink spiking, where alcohol or drugs are added to someone’s drink without them knowing. Drink spiking may be done with the intent of stealing from the victim, assaulting the victim, or as a prank. It is a criminal offence and can be punished with up to 10 years in prison.
Many incidents of drink-spiking go unreported because victims experience memory loss or are unable to remember events clearly. If you think you’ve been spiked, report it to the police as soon as possible.
