Facts Are Facts
Posted by Childress on May 27, 2006
A friend of mine likes to say, "You're entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts."
When it comes to drugs, there are lots of opinions out there: Some think drugs are safe and fun, some think they're dangerous and frightening, and many think everything in between.
But facts are facts, and when someone dies from drugs, or someone is murdered by a person who is on drugs, or is raped by someone who has given them drugs, that's just a fact. Drug users who actively promote drug use rail against these facts, and I expect they'll be commenting regularly on The Drug Report. But they can't change the facts.
I am presenting these facts, gleaned primarily from newspaper sources, so people can consider them when thinking about using drugs or use them when talking to others about drugs.
I look forward to your comments. Thanks!
