- Many drugs that
are easily accessible and taken recreationally can be used to help someone
commit a sexual assault. These drugs can render a victim unconscious
and cause them to have no memory of the incident. The drug most commonly
used to help a perpetrator assault someone is alcohol, so be cautious
and know your limits.
