  • Alcohol is the most commonly used drug in sexual assault and acquaintance rape.
  • Marijuana is a close second.
  • A person who is under even the slightest influence of alcohol or drugs may be at a higher risk of being raped.
  • (S)he may not be as capable of protecting herself/himself.
  • Her/His perception of danger is distorted and it is more difficult to set limits and communicate them clearly.
  • Her/His ability to resist physically is lessened.
  • The use of other drugs such as Rohypnol (Roofies, Rope), Ketamine (Special K, vitamin K, lady K, kit kat), and GHB (Gamma-Oh, Easy Lay) makes it even easier to victimize an individual.
  • These drugs are frequently put in a victim's drink without knowledge, rendering the victim incapacitated and possibly unconscious within minutes.
