Make spiking with needles a specific offence with a minimum 5-year sentence

Petition Details

In light of recent events of people being spiked by needle injection I think the Government should make spiking by injection a specific criminal offence with a minimum 5-year prison sentence.

Additional Information

Not only is it dangerous possibly leading to theft, rape or death but there’s the risk of catching infectious viruses and diseases. It’s also going to affect pubs bars and clubs with people being worried about becoming a victim of such crime. I think bars have had enough to deal with lately with covid. The Government must do the right thing. Let’s stamp this out now.
