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.

    ONDCP needs more funding so that more children can experience the wonders of drugs :).

    LOL, I love how more pork means more drug use. it's like, there a pattern here but I can't see it. maybe repealing the war on drugs might discourage the tennie boppers from doing drugs entirely?

    I would not be surprised if anti drugs ads would lead to more use of drugs by teens. There are some threads about that topic.

    I have observed the tendency that today's teens almost always distrust the government and its campaigns. And if they see such ridiculous antidrug ads, they will realize that they're just being brainwashed. Then they reject this and start to use drugs. Kids are not as stupid as the government thinks.
