Bar coasters will indicate if drink tampered with

The Aspen Police Department and Response have teamed to distribute 2,500 drink coasters in response to concern about date-rape drugs being slipped into libations.

By putting a few drops of a drink onto a coaster, the users can see whether the cocktail has been spiked – the coaster changes color.

Aspen police will be passing the coasters out to local drinking establishments over the weekend.
