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.

Ketamine Floods Into BC

Posted by Childress on October 21, 2006

Police in British Columbia are worried about the sudden appearance of Ketamine on the streets of western Canada — for good reason. 

Recent police intelligence indicates that Ketamine is fast becoming a popular street/club drug throughout the province. Police say a significant Ketamine bust in Richmond at the end of September — in which 28 kilograms of the drug was seized along with several firearms — indicates organized crime involvement.

Ketamine is used by doctors and vets to knock out patients for surgery.  As such, it is carefully applied by specialists — vets or anaesthologists — under controlled situations.  On the street … well, let’s just say controls are not quite so good.

If you want to see first hand what can go wrong if a person inadvertently overdoses on Ketamine, watch the Erin Rose clip at Voice of the Victims

While you’re there, please buy a set.  Beth Pearce tells me she’d like to do another film — this one covering DXM, GHB and alcohol — and your purchase will help her achieve that goal.
