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.

Brimble Drug Rape And Death Update

Posted by Childress on June 27, 2006

If you’re not following the Australian press, you’re probably unaware of the death of Dianne Brimble on a P&O cruise ship — after she was apparently drugged with GHB and raped by any number of eight men who are implicated in her death.

Pity her poor family.  The story appears to be growing to O.J. Simpson or Scott Peterson size, dragging her children through a protracted hell.

My original post on the story provides background.  Here are some links to some more recent stories from the almost 2000 listed at

Brimble ‘would never do drugs’

Passenger heard Brimble’s protest in next cabin

And this, which gives us what may have been Dianne Brimble’s last, pleading words:  Brimble men told:  I’m not like that.
