University of Hawaii at Manoa Campus Security officials are warning students not to leave drinks unattended and to be wary of accepting drinks from people they do not know well after a student reported being given a drink that may have contained a "date-rape drug."

According to UH, the student was at the Manoa Gardens eatery and bar last Friday when she was given a drink by two males she did not know. The student reported having no memory of the rest of the night and later waking up in an off-campus apartment with a person she didn't know.

The university said the student reported "symptoms consistent with the ingestion of date-rape drug substances," including rapid onset of intoxication out of proportion to the amount of alcohol consumed and memory loss.

UH Campus Security is investigating the incident.

Tough luck, when you do not know who raped you. But if you are willing to be in environment where you accept drinksfrom strangers you have only yourself to blame for your juvenile behavior??? Feel sad for you, hope you will learn and be wiser.

Although she was dumb for taking a drink from strangers, no one deserves to be raped. I mean, you basically just said, "Good for you". I feel just as bad for you . . . .for being a heartless person.
