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.

Kanck’s Party Boss Quits

Posted by Childress on July 15, 2006

Fallout continues from Aussie politician Sandra Kanck’s endorsement of Ecstasy.  From The Advertiser:

Democrats president Richard Pascoe has resigned over Sandra Kanck’s comments on the designer drug ecstasy.

At an extraodinary party meeting last night, the state and national president told the executive council and members he had made the decision to resign on Thursday during a phone call with Australian Democrats Leader Lynn Allison.

”I realised that we were at opposing ends in our assessment of this situation so I resigned to her then and there and informed her that I would officially announce the decision to the council and members that elected me as I have done tonight,” Mr Pascoe told the meeting.

The struggling party’s latest woes began in May when Ms Kanck told State Parliament that ecstasy, linked to more than 110 deaths in three years, ”is not a dangerous drug”.

Good for him. Get far, far away from Sandra Kanck. She’s loopy.
