In this series of articles, I will be examining the prohibition of drugs and alcohol, and the impact that has on users. I will first briefly detail the development of modern prohibition in the United States and Internationally. Part two will explore the motivations of individuals who use illicit substances. Part three will examine the effectiveness of the outcomes of prohibition and how they relate to the motivations of users. Part four will examine alternatives to prohibition.
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.
