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.

Australian Man Dead from Ecstasy-PMA

Posted by Childress on July 30, 2006

PMA is back.  The cheap drug is periodically mixed with Ecstasy or sold in place of Ecstasy — with fatal results.  It’s happened again, this time in South Australia:

A man who sold a lethal cocktail of party drugs to a workmate has been jailed for 16 months. Christopher Gurney died shortly after ingesting tablets he bought from Damien Aaron Shaw in November 2004

But the workmate’s death could not be used to justify a harsher penalty, a South Australian District Court judge said today.

Both men believed the tablets had been ecstasy, but later analysis showed they had contained a mix of ecstasy and the hallucinogen PMA.

    Thankfully PMA isnt anywhere near as common as the media would have you believe. The reason being is that it’s not really any cheaper or easier to make than MDMA.
