I read a fair number of studies being in the medical field. I am curious about the need for a spiking study. There is a very limited number of reasons to spike a drink; actually only one I can think of. Maybe the study can prove me wrong but if I was working with a PhD candidate I would tell them to study something with more meat on it or find another adviser. 

As an undergrad I had to configure a way to anesthetize mice and inject specific areas of the brain to observe behaviors when they woke up. We were screening for novel antihypertensive medications. That had meaning and offered benefit.

Spiking is done to gain advantage over someone for nefarious purposes and is inherently wrong. The victims are hurt physically and psychologically. Publish that. End of need for research Furthermore a sample size of 20 [excluding the USC arm] is small for statistically significant results.

End rant. Now get off my lawn.

Lived in St. Thomas for 6 yrs. If you are ever in USVI [and are unfamiliar with it] I would love to help you find some great sport fishing/diving.

Me too. The OP does little other than rant and alienate himself. Sounds fun but not my style.
