Most People That Claim Their Drinks Have Been Spiked Are Just Drunk
<snip>

MOST people who seek treatment at hospital emergency departments claiming their drinks have been spiked are simply drunk, a new study has found.

Emergency doctors at Perth's Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (SCGH) have completed Australia's first medical study on drink spiking.
They found patients' symptoms were often caused by excessive alcohol and illicit drug use rather than sedatives.

"In the community there is a view that drink spiking occurs and that it is the scenario of an offender slipping a sedative into another person's drink, presumably to stupefy them in order to take advantage of them this is what we used as the basic premise of our study," study leader Dr Mark Little said.

"Our research findings don't support that."

SCGH doctors and researchers from the University of Western Australia found only four definite cases of drink spiking among 97 study participants, but none involved sedatives.

Most of the participants were females aged under 25 years.

2. "Females aged under 25 years"
