Introduce a new law to make spiking illegal!

The recent decision by Government to not introduce specific legislation to make spiking illegal leaves victims of such an attack without proper recourse for justice.

A YouGov poll found that one in nine women and one in seventeen men in the UK said they have been the victim of drink spiking.

Introducing a specific law would help more people when reporting incidents and would send a clear message to perpetrators that this is a serious crime.

Why is this important?

As a person who has had their drink spiked in the past, I would have felt a lot more comfortable reporting the incident if I knew there was a specific law protecting me.

The Government's failure to introduce a new law lets women down. Please sign my petition to put pressure on the Home Office to reverse their decision!
