Rational scale to assess the harm of drugs.

Rational scale to assess the harm of drugs

Some surprises there, but it does show that all drugs will create some sort of dependence and physical harm.

I have heard many people say that alcohol is the most dangerous drug; primarily because it’s the most available. However according to this graph it seems to be pretty dangerous as well.

This graph only takes into account physical harm and dependence, it does not consider other factors such as what mental states they induce and which drugs are illegal to take.

  1. Hi, I’m working on this new site atm, they’re looking for informed contributors with good writing skills and having read your blog I think your contribution would be welcome.

    Talking Drugs is an online space reflecting the global challenge posed by illicit drugs.
It provides an opportunity to share stories and insights that will help us find better ways to control illicit drugs and prevent them causing excessive harm. Everybody is welcome to contribute and get involved. We want people to tell their stories – you can document the impact of drugs in your own community and support others telling their stories through the making of videos, taking photographs and translating content to ensure that the message gets out to as many people as possible.

    Talking Drugs is managed by Release (www.release.org.uk) the UK’s centre of expertise on drugs, the law and human rights.

    Please check it out at: http://www.talkingdrugs.org/

    Best Wishes, Adam
