Druglink article 1993 – Of strawberries and cabbages by Dudley Craig, Mark Gilman, Ciaran O’Hagan and Charlie Wright

The assumption that drug use reflects personal or social problems has led to knowledge about drugs and drug use patterns being de-emphasised compared to therapeutic skills. However, there is a significant demand for informed ‘consumer advice’ from young people and their parents/friends who simply want answers to factual questions about drugs and drug use. To meet this demand ‘inside knowledge’ of the local drug scene is needed, which could be gathered by volunteers either in or on the periphery of drug using circles.
