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 was to provide good quality information and analysis which was evidence-based and non-judgemental.
In 2013, DrugScope published its media guide to drugs: key facts and figures for journalists (PDF) 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 publication of The media guide was made possible by the generous support of The Brit Trust and Ansvar Insurance.
