1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
    PLEASE HELP

    I remember hearing on the radio about people who were given wine samples. There were 2 to try, which were in fact the same, but the testers were told that one was different and more expensive than the other. If I recall correctly, at least 90% said they liked the more expensive one better.

    I've been saying it for years. Conisseurism was a scam invented by the wine industry. It's all the same crap, but no one is willing to admit it. The emperor has no fruity full-bodied aroma with hints of oak and cinnamon.

    I know someone who thinks that advil works much better than the generic brand, same chemicals and all, so this sugestion does have credibility
