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.

Fentanyl Deaths Fault of U.S.?

Posted by Childress on September 4, 2006

I’m not going to post a comment by Pat Rodgers, who blames last summer’s heroin/fentanyl deaths on the U.S. government.  His/her point:  American successful interdiction of Asian heroin caused addicts no choice but Mexican heroin, which led to Fentanyl spiking in an effort to yield similar effects as Asian heroin.

My take is different, of course.  However, it’s not the purpose of this blog to debate drug policy.  I’m not taking any comments on this post; I’m just putting Rodgers’ comment out there for your consideration.

    My 36 year old sister died November of 2005 from Fentanyl toxicity within 48hours following a “tummy-tuck”. My family is still trying to obtain all the information for our legal team.
    My sister had two young boys who have been without their mother for over a year and are a mess.
    The Plastic surgeon continues to practice medicine and see his family for the holidays.
    Legal punishment must be faster.
