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.

    FACTS ARE FACTS

    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.

Bad Drug Judgment

Posted by Childress on June 9, 2006

One of the downsides of drug use is impaired judgment.  Sometimes it gets really, really impaired:

A Great Falls (MT) man was sentenced to 10 years in prison Thursday for moving the body of a murdered man to a cistern near an abandoned farmhouse east of Brady.

Steven Sadler, 35, pleaded guilty in April to felony accountability to tampering with evidence. He received the maximum sentence for the crime.

Dueston Haggard, 28, of Great Falls, faces murder charges in the March 2005 beating death of Ronald Miller, 50. Court records state Haggard beat Miller to death in an argument over drugs and dumped his body near the Teton River north of Carter.

Sadler and another man came back later and moved Miller's body to the cistern, court records state.

Jonathan Wellcome was sentenced to 10 years in prison with five suspended for his role in the case.
