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.

I welcome comments of most kinds, but will not post comments that include wrong or dangerous information.

For example, I deleted a comment today that said no one ever dies from Ecstasy alone (not true; I am personally aware of several Ecstasy-only deaths, both from medical reactions and from driving), and that it can be safe to use if people know how to use it (not true; it can be safer, perhaps, but again, there are many people dead who prove that it is not always safe, even if it is used "well").

This blog is not about odds; it is about facts.  I will not allow comments posted that bend the facts and present false information that could lead someone to harm or death.
