Coming to a bar near you? Date-rape drug detecting glasses

This is kind of an interesting idea. I could see them being popular at college-type bars.
It's certainly a help but I think an issue with that lies in the fact that it only tests for certain drugs. If someone puts something else in it won't show positive.
We just need to make sure that we get the drinks ourselves. Or do like I do and make them drink it first and hope they haven't built up a tolerance. Then again I like to live dangerously.
I like it, it's a good idea. As mentioned above, it won't detect everything, but it's certainly a step in the right direction.
I'm a couple of decades past college, but before anything, I would stand by the old adages of "watch your drink" and "bring friends". I hate beer but if I was with a crowd I didn't know, I'd opt for bottled beer, opened in front of me, and I'd always keep an eye on friends who were drinking some sketchy punch out of the red plastic cups. But then I'm a cautious cathy.
I think it may give a false sense of security..
I am not planning on being a "drinker" but have already been drilled with the
dont drink something that has been "sent over" it is better to be rude than sorry later or dead
Dont leave your drinkeven take it to the bathroom your friends never watch it as close as you think
stay in a group
never leave a friend behind
