A Chico bar is warning it's customers to be aware of the "date rape" drug that is rumored to be circulating around city bars.

Joe's Bar posted the announcement on Facebook saying Enloe Medical Center has seen ten cases of people drugged with GHB in the last two months.

The post was posted on Wednesday and has hundreds of shares with people warning their friends. 

Enloe officials have not been able to confirm the numbers and claims.

Joe's Bar has not had any incidents, but wanted to get ahead of the problem by warning customers.

The managers of both Joe's and Riley's both did not want to comment on camera about this.

No matter how many cases Enloe has seen this is a good reminder to everyone to be more aware when at a party or bar. 

Don't take drinks from strangers and always have your eye on your drink. 

Some of the symptoms of the GHB date rape drug are dizziness, nausea and vomiting, sweating, or even just feeling drunk without even drinking much alcohol.

If you are experiencing any of these you are advised to go to the hospital and if you see any suspicious activity, call the police immediately.
