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.

Bad Bust In Fentanyl-Heroin Case

Posted by Childress on June 21, 2006

Efforts to find who's killed more than 200 people by lacing heroin with Fentanyl came up dry … somewhat … in Chicago.

In raids on Wednesday, agents seized more than 220 pounds of heroin, firearms, vehicles and cash — but no Fentanyl-laced heroin.  So the search for the killers goes on. 

If you have any doubts about how cynical drug marketers are about their customers, and how little their customers worry about their lives, consider this from the AP story:

Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Shapiro alleged that the Mickey Cobras gang marketed its drugs to take advantage of the deadly heroin’s notoriety, selling products with names such as “Max Pain,” “Lethal Injection,” “Fear Factor,” “Drop Dead” and “Final Call.”

Some say the solution to all this is to simply legalize heroin, give it free to addicts and toss in free needles for good measure. Sorry. Heroin is bad stuff, and society is supposed to protect its members from bad stuff.
