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.

    Official statistic on the Cocaine, Heroin, Morphine & MDMA Deaths, 2004-2006 In Virginia state.
    By the Virginia Department of Health, Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

    During the years of 2004 through 2006, there were 1,828 drug deaths (excluding alcohol-only deaths) in Virginia; the majority were Virginia residents (94.7%) resulting in a residential rate of 7.6 drug deaths per 100,000. A range of drugs was responsible for these deaths including prescription, illegal, and over-the-counter drugs. The majority of these cases were whites (82%), males (63%), and accidents (78%). This review will focus on 3 illegal drugs: cocaine, heroin and methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) and one potentially illegal drug metabolite, morphine. Morphine is included in this review because while it can be legally prescribed by a physician it is also a metabolite of heroin. The presence of morphine and additional heroin metabolites often allows differentiation between heroin use and prescription morphine, but this is not always the case.
