This web site does not show pictures of drugs or drug use. Such pictures can cause problems for people who are addicted to drugs. Seeing pictures of drugs can make a person feel strong urges to start using drugs again. If you need to find drug pictures, visit the Get Smart About Drugs web site, which has a large photo collection.
