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.

Ecstasy, The Love Drug

Posted by Childress on September 9, 2006

Obviously, this guy has problems way bigger than ecstasy use … but you have to wonder if this crime had occured if the perp weren’t on a drug that loosens sexual inhibitions.

An 18-year-old man told police he took ecstasy and looked at a pornographic magazine before raping a 2-year-old that he believed to be the son of a man who had robbed him, according to a criminal complaint filed Friday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court.

Rodney Redell Jett, of the 3400 block of N. 17th St., was charged with three counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child, each of which carries a maximum possible penalty of 60 years in prison.
