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.

    Abstract
    Since the 1990s there has been a rise in both the prevalence of party drug use in Australia and the use of party drug-related
    websites. This study investigates whether it is feasible to recruit and survey party drug users via the internet. It took place in
    Victoria, Australia. Participants were directed to a website where they completed a brief, structured internet-based survey.
    A total of 460 responses were received over 31 days, 393 of which fitted all inclusion criteria. The sample consisted predominately of
    young, male polydrug users and is one of the largest samples of party drug users in Australia reported thus far. It was concluded that
    it is feasible to recruit and survey current party drug users via the internet and that this method is quicker and cheaper than
    traditional survey methods, although samples are not necessarily representative of the party drug-using population. Other
    limitations and advantages are discussed. [Miller PG, Johnston J,McElwee PR, Noble R. A pilot study using the
