In January 1998, following the seizure of GHB near a college campus, the Office of the Attorney General convened the Emergency Campus Summit on Date Rape Drugs. Summit participants - including representatives from colleges, law enforcement, rape crisis centers, students groups, public agencies and the medical professions - discussed ways to prevent the influx of date-rape drugs from becoming a crisis. Averting the Crisis arose out of those discussions. This report contains a number of materials to help you act on this important issue.
