Drink spiking is adding a substance to someone’s drink without their knowledge.
Alcohol is the most common substance to be added, but illegal or legal drugs are used as well. Spiking is illegal, and there are a number of different offences that such an action fall under. Drinks are spiked for many reasons, but it is always a crime and should not be tolerated.
