STORY: "Accused drunk driver's memory loss possibly from date rape drug," by reporter Marianne Boucher, published by CITY News on January 20, 2015.

GIST:  A forensic toxicologist testified at Sabastian Prosa’s fatal drunk driving trial on Tuesday, saying that his memory loss could have potentially been caused by the presence of a stupefying drug like GHB or Ketamine......... Prosa, who was 19 at the time of crash, has pleaded not guilty to 12 charges, including impaired driving causing death and impaired driving causing bodily harm. Dr. Joel Mayer testified Tuesday that Prosa’s actions were unusual for the amount of alcohol found in his blood. He said Prosa’s memory loss and confusion on the highway could be explained by the presence of other drugs like GHB or Ketamine. Both are commonly referred to as date rape or club drugs. “I would not expect an alcoholic blackout based on (his) blood alcohol concentrations,” he testified. The defence will argue that the case should be dismissed because Prosa’s remaining blood sample was destroyed in transit and can’t be re-tested to determine whether those drugs were actually in his system."
