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.

12-year-old Rushed to Hospital; Took Ecstasy

Posted by Childress on August 19, 2006

Would a 40 year old woman give a 12 year old girl Ecstasy in order to build a market for her drug dealing business? Apparently so, according to the Cornish Guardian:

Children in Torpoint are being supplied with Class A drugs, a police investigation has revealed.

Earlier this month a 12-year-old girl was rushed to hospital after taking ecstasy in the town, prompting police to arrest a teenager and a woman in her 40s on suspicion of drug dealing.

The girl was taken ill on parkland at The Lawns on August 5 and was transferred by ambulance to Derriford Hospital where she received treatment and was later released.

Police have now appealed to children to tell their parents – who should then report it to the police – if they are approached by anyone offering them pills or other substances.

Officers say children can sometimes be offered drugs at no cost with the intention of getting them hooked. …

Local residents have been stunned someone so young could have taken the drug.

Helen Dunn, 40, saw the girl being helped into the ambulance.

She said: “I’m really shocked she’s only 12, she looked a lot older than that. I saw the police and ambulance arrive and I saw two boys supporting a girl, walking her towards the ambulance, She couldn’t stand on her own.”

Lucky the girl got to the hospital right away. This goes right along with the story below. Parents need to get a clue.
