The Drug Report

Facts about what can go wrong when people use drugs

  • The Best Drug Info Ever?

    A big part of my inspiration for The Drug Report was Beth Pearce's amazing film, VOICE OF THE VICTIMS: TRUE STORIES OF ECSTASY AND KETAMINE. The film simply lets the victims of drug tragedies tell their stories. It's real life, it's undeniable, and it's incredibly powerful. I'm sure Beth has saved many, many lives, and it is my hope that this blog will do so as well. To learn more about her film, go to Voice Of The Victims.


    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.

One Bad Decision

Unintended consequences. A little Ecstasy dealing never hurt anyone, right? How one mistake can lead to tragedy!

THE graduate who fell four storeys to his death at Liverpool’s World Museum was four days away from appearing in court on drugs charges, the Daily Post has learned.

Scientist Alexander Dutton, 24, was due in court for possessing ecstasy with intent to supply when he apparently killed himself.

The former Wirral Grammar School pupil had no previous convictions and had vowed never to have anything to do with the drug again.

Last night, his father, Richmond Dutton, said he did not believe his son killed himself because he could not face the shame of a conviction.

Dr Dutton, from Prenton, said he remained mystified by his son’s death.
