Some of the drugs covered by the pamphlets include:

  • alcohol
  • cannabis
  • cocaine

  • methamphetamine, speed and ice
  • synthetic drugs.

As well as being available from your local public library, these factsheets can be downloaded or ordered online free of charge from the Your Room website.
