Date Rape Drug

A date rape drug, is any drug that is an incapacitating agent which, when administered to another person, incapacitates the person and renders them vulnerable to a drug-facilitated sexual assault (DFSA), including rape.

One of the most common types of DFSA are those in which a victim consumes a recreational drug such as alcohol that was administered surreptitiously.

The other most common form of DFSA involves the non-surreptitiously-administered consumption of alcohol. Here, the victims in these cases are drinking voluntarily which then makes them unable to make informed decisions and/or give consent.
