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.

How CSI cleans your dope

    "The Drug Enforcement Administration's Special Testing and Research Laboratory generated the following monographs using structurally confirmed reference materials. These monographs are intended to be used for the verification of acquired reference materials. Monographs are being uploaded as they are technically reviewed and approved for publication. In addition, links to monographs authored by Forensic Drug Review are provided . . . ."

    This is the internal document for US Federal forensics scientists to evaluate external data, or something. Anyway, I've uploaded here the standards for methamphetamine, such as expected chromatography peaks.

    Of interest to D-F members is their method of separating adulterants: acetone is not used, chloroform and ether are, and the sample is often just converted to free base. No mention of MSM or ISO is made.

    It's an interesting site for anyone curious about the other drugs the DEA examines.
