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.

A Huffing Death from Butane

Posted by Childress on August 14, 2006

Here’s a tragic comment to my earlier post A Huffing Death in Wales that detailed the tragic death of a 14-year-old girl from huffing — inhaling fumes from solvents.  It tells of another sad death of a young person from huffing:

well we dont no exactly but late on june 16/early 17th of june my brother wasnt so lucky and didnt get to see his family,he died in a chair in his room infront of a tv.he died by a butane can of cooking gas.

i just want everyone to no that no matter how much u fight with ur family please tell all of them how much u love them cause u never no when it will be there last day. i think its good that u r expressing what happened to that girl and making sure people are aware of what could happen.

I’m sorry for your loss, dear.  If he could, I know your brother would want to be back with you.  I’m sure it was never his intention to die.  Inhaling gases is very, very risky.

    In terms of risk of death, gas and solvents are some of the most dangerous drugs there are.
