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.
    PLEASE HELP

The Media Guide To Drugs

The Media Guide To Drugs

  1. Terrapinzflyer
    There is much misinformation and confusion about drugs in the public domain – but it is also a hot topic which always grabs the headlines. One of DrugScope’s key tasks is to provide good quality information and analysis which is up to date, evidence-based and non-judgemental. To this end, we view working positively with the media to be critical.

    DrugScope is therefore very proud to present The media guide to drugs: key facts and figures for journalists. This new guide is intended to be a resource for journalists working across all media. The guide contains an A to Z of drugs, including information on what substances look like, how they are used, what effects they have and how many people use them. The essential Q&A section covers key topics such as how to find the latest statistics and how to avoid common myths. The guide also incorporates a discussion on reporting drug issues responsibly, non-sensationally and without contributing to the stigma faced by people with drug problems.
