Know Drugs seeks to facilitate an honest and open discussion about ALL kinds of drug use in the UK and beyond. We include alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceutical drugs in our remit.
The concept is based around this website which features full and frank video interviews with people about what drugs they choose to use (or not to use). The stories come from people with all kinds of experiences and perceptions of drugs – good, bad, ugly, beautiful and even indifferent. They seek to understand what drives a person to use drugs, to continue using them or to stop using them. They ask why people are drawn to different drugs and what they get out of them. We also interview experts in the field to share and understand from professional perspectives across a range of drug related subjects.
The video above shows some of the Know Drugs interviewees answers to the question about why they agreed to be interviewed for the project.
Those who are bringing Know Drugs into being do so because they feel the issues around drug use and the way it is currently handled are harming millions of people around the world and they would like to help alleviate some of that suffering. We feel that more honesty from everyone around their drug use (including alcohol), will help shift us into a healthier paradigm.
