I don’t know about you, but every time a stranger hands me a drink at a bar, or at an event, I wonder if the beverage is safe. I just know too many people who have been drugged. One of my friends was sexually assaulted, and another one was in a deadly accident after someone slipped a roofie (a date rape drug) in his drink.
After Danya Sherman, a George Washington junior, experienced a life-threatening situation, she decided to help others avoid the same horrendous situation.
This story should be shared with all the young people you know. Sherman’s idea is brilliant. She is creating the KnoNap, a drug-detecting cocktail napkin, that will tell you if it’s safe to drink. All you have to do is drip a drop of your drink on the KnoNap napkin. If the napkin changes colors, you have been drugged. Put down the drink, and head for the door.
Sherman plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the first round of manufacturing in April. The goal, she says, is to roll out the product by the end of the year.
