Record number of Danes having their drinks spiked

People having their drinks spiked whilst on a night out is becoming a bigger problem every year, according to new figures from two hospitals in Copenhagen.

According to cases handled by the poison hotline at Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg hospitals, there have been 160 reports in 2017, which is already 40 more than last year and more than double the 74 cases reported in 2013. But the problem is probably far greater than reported.

Women in particular are vulnerable to having their drinks spiked, and Dalhoff urges people never to accept drinks from strangers or leave drinks unattended.
