As a former career intelligence analyst, I go to great lengths to ensure the completeness, accuracy and reliability of the data presented on this site. Much of the data I host is not available on-line, and the numerous reports produced by the various government agencies usually contain data for only a small part of what they have actually collected and reported over time. I made the effort to compile it into what remains the most complete collection of drug related data available. My presentation of the data has been vetted by several academic researchers who have cited my site and work through formal peer review processes. I thereby stake my professional reputation on the fidelity of my work and guarantee its accuracy. Naturally, I welcome you to prove it to yourself if desired, by visiting the links below to some of the resources I use to produce the site. Above all else, if you do find any errors in the pages I host, kindly email me so I can correct them.
