There are many myths about alcohol and other drugs—sometimes it’s hard to know what to believe.

To find out more about a particular drug and how it affects the body, we encourage you to read the information developed by the Australian Drug Foundation.

The Australian Drug Foundation also has a range of free resources for pamphlets, fact sheets and more, on drugs and drug-related topics.

There are also many other great sources for information including NCPIC: all you need to know about marijuana, NDARC, Dovetail, healthdirect and QNADA.
