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.

It is the analysis of these licit and illicit drugs that reveals the true extent of what is being consumed, often by young and vulnerable clubbers in the UK and worldwide. We have shown that tablets and powders recovered from dance venues or purchased from Internet sites often do not contain what is expected. In this presentation the findings from drug amnesty bins from clubs and festivals in the UK were discussed as were those drugs seen most frequently..
