Students are taking a stand against reports of drug “spiking” as third level institutes launch campaigns to highlight the risks.
The Institute of Technology (IT) Carlow Students’ Union has announced an initiative aimed at curbing the recent increase in students’ drinks being spiked.
‘Spike-Watch’ involves students’ union staff and volunteer students patrolling popular bars in Carlow town.
It comes after what the union has described as a surge in spiking reported over the past number of weeks.
