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.

Drugs Linked To Houston Murders

Posted by Childress on July 22, 2006

Four years after Rachael Koloroutis and Tiffany Rowell, both 18; Marcus Precella, 19, and Adelbert Sanchez, 21, were bludgeoned and shot to death in the Houston suburb of Clear Lake, police have arrested one suspect and are hunting another.

And they have a motive, says the Houston Chronicle

Police had said the killings were likely drug-related and that Precella owed money for drugs he sold. Precella, who worked part-time as a waiter, began selling the drugs he and his friends used to other friends, police have said. The drugs were identified as Ecstasy, Xanax, cocaine and marijuana.

Sanchez, Precella’s cousin, also sold drugs, according to police.

Police have one suspect in custody and are looking for Chris Snider, who may be in Louisville or North Carolina.

    tiffany and i used to be friends in middle school. we went to the wave pool in la port together. oh the simplier days. it makes me sad everytime i think about her untimely death. she was so sweet to everyone she met. even though we only were friends for a short time, i will always remember her back in those summery carefree days.

    adelbert was my cousin and my best friend. since the murders, i’ve thought that that jerk who shot him is a coward for running away. if you’re bold enough to take 4 lives, you ought to be brave enough to not run from the law.
