Three Girls Invent Straw That Detects Drugs

A woman orders a drink and has to go to the bathroom when she comes back, a man moves in close and she can't remember the rest of the evening. It's a story that plays over and over. It's hard to always police your drink or your friend's drink for that matter.

All 17 and 18 years old and go to Gulliver Prep School in Miami. They call it the "Smart Straw".
