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

    [IMGR=white]https://drugs-forum.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=46733&stc=1&d=1446838328[/IMGR]A recent Drug Enforcement Administration survey asked law enforcement agencies to name the “greatest drug threat” in their area. Marijuana was the least common choice, with only 6 percent of agencies identifying it as the biggest threat.

    Via Wonkblog:

    “The findings indicate a statement by law enforcement of a fact that drug policy experts and researchers have known for a long time: compared to other recreational substances, including alcohol, marijuana doesn’t cause that much harm. It’s probably even safer than many people think. And whether you’re worried about potential harms to individuals or to communities, marijuana is very low on the list of recreational substances.”
