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.

What’s With The Drug Report?

The Drug Report is compiled by Childress — just someone who’s trying to do something to help people make the right decision when they consider doing drugs.

I believe that information rules. Pro-drug folks hate information about drug tragedies and try to minimize the fact that drugs can, and often do, kill people. This blog stands in defiance to that, because it’s gleaned entirely from factual reports.

What inspired me? The Voice of the Victims films — the most powerful drug education tool I’ve ever seen.

    Good job! Good information and I agree that people should have access to the facts about the consequences of drug use. The pro-drug voices can be strong and virulent as I am certain you have discovered. Appreciate your efforts to inform about this subject.

    Thanks for doing your excellent website. Since you are likely to be viewed by families who are victims of drugs, can I suggest that you review the http://www.ModelDDLA.com website to learn how 14 states, covering about 1/3 of the population of the country, allow victims of other people’s drug use can sue for their damages.

    What a great service you’re providing here! I provide a similar service, but because it is for professionals in law enforcement, education, government and substance abuse prevention and treatment, I refrain from adding my opinion on the information. So I’m glad that you’re here to do that!

    The link below is a story on the women who, having turned to prostitution because of their drug addictions, have been the victims of recent serial killings in England. Lovely young women whose drug use lead to their murders. Very sad, but so very true.
