    Drink spiking is something that barely ever happens. It is possible your drink was spiked, but it is far more likely that you just don't know your limits, or hadn't eaten that day, or whatever.
    Thats quite a naive comment. It actually happens all the time!

    Not confirming or denying this, but I'm curious as to how you can possibly know? I guess you could surreptitiously take a sample of everyone's drinks in a few bars and clubs, but otherwise how would you get evidence that's anything but anecdotal?
    As others have said, studies seem to confirm this. I would look for a link, but I'm too lazy. If you're especially interested it shouldn't be too difficult to find though, the studies are quite popular and well-known ones.

    Fine, I will edit this post in a minute with a link to the study.

    Edit: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19527282 - http://www.aic.gov.au/documents/7/8/...inkspiking.pdf

    tl:dr, it isn't naive, it is evidence-based fact. If you are unwilling to face the truth of the situation, fine, but don't lie to people about it.

    First of all thats based in Australia, not the UK. It also has a sample of 101 patients, so relatively small - therefore not very generalisable. But I will agree to disagree

    He has 101, you have none. Also: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...an-legend.html

    A quick google will give you many more results and much more evidence, all pointing towards him being correct.

    But fair enough, if you want to believe him to be naive...

    How to know if you've been drugged: Ask yourself if you could, right now, jump up and touch the ceiling. The answer may be 'yes' or 'no', but if you are stuck thinking about it for too long, you've been drugged.

    A tip from a former SAS officer.
