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.

A Good Guide to Rape Drugs

Posted by Childress on June 5, 2006

The blog Holly's Fight for Justice has a well-researched post on the dangerous drug-assisted rape drugs Rohypnol and GHB, including the effects and risks of the drugs, and steps one can take to be safe.

I particularly liked Holly's introduction, which is right-on:

Unfortunately the use of date rape drugs is on the rise, especially Rohypnol and GHB [I would add ketamine to the list]. However, keep in mind that the most common date rape drug out there is actually alcohol.

Yes, indeed.  Protect yourself from GHB, roofies and Ketamine — but always, watch out for alcohol, which not only can make you pass out into full vulnerability, but short of that, can strip you of the ability to make smart decisions.
