We are an information site to provide readers with stories and information about addictive substances. We want to show not only how drugs negatively impact lives, but what society’s current thinking about them is, and what it is doing about them, both on a positive and negative front.

We don’t intend to scare readers, but instead give them tools by which they can inform and educate themselves about drugs and how they are impacting society right now, as well as how federal, state and local governments are trying to address the problems through legislative action.

These news stories are all true and show not only how drugs negatively affect the lives of children and adults, but how someone who uses drugs, even legalized recreational use, could be putting lives at risk when they operate motor vehicles or participate in activities while under the influence.

Each article we post has links to further information, both educational and therapeutic. If you know someone who is struggling with addiction or substance abuse issues, don’t wait until tomorrow, but act today! Through the links provided, you can find the help you need.

These stories demonstrate that drugs not only hurt the person using them but others around them, including spouses, children and their community. We hope you will learn from these stories and be emboldened to take action and get involved.
