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.

    The variety of drugs currently involved in the drug abuse problem is very extensive. As these materials become better defined and their use better controlled, they will be replaced with substitute compounds, which will provide society with new, unknown, and unmanageable substances. Currently, the authorities assume that the drug abuse situation has reached its fullest degree of complexity. Therefore, logic would demand that the solution to this problem would lie in an accurate definition of the materials involved, the construction of an adequately worded prohibition, and the provision of sufficient force to guarantee these prohibitions. Unfortunately, the rapid growth and spread of socially unacceptable uses of drugs indicate that this assumption may not be accurate.
