ABSTRACT
A patent for a highly sensitive test to detect the presence of the date rape drug, GHB, has recently been granted to the University of California, Santa Barbara. The research to develop the test began a few years ago when Harold Penn, a local Santa Barbara entrepreneur, was disturbed by news reports of a local date rape case involving a student at the Brooks Institute of Photography who had been drugged with GHB and then raped.
