Spring breakers have more to worry about than just speeding tickets. It's once they pull into town and hit the nightclubs. Young women need to be aware of the threat for date rape drugs.
There has already been one case reported on Okaloosa Island of a man who bought a young woman a drink and then sexually assaulted her. She doesn't remember anything from the time she accepted the drink until she was taken by taxi to her hotel room.
Okaloosa County Sheriff's Department suggest you always guard your drinks, never accept drinks from a stranger and use a buddy system to keep a watchful eye.
Date rape drugs cause extreme intoxication, convulsions, and in the worse case, death.
