VelterSummaryThe major studies on men who have sex with men (MSM) in France (which began with Michael Pollak and Marie-Ange Schiltz forty years ago in Gay Press) introduced the idea of drug use in 1997, just after highly effective antiretroviral treatment (HAART) combinations were made available for HIV, making AIDS a manageable chronic condition. Australian researcher Kane Race identifies this time as the beginning of a “lifetime of drugs”, but the utility of surveys into the use of psychoactive substances among gay peop...

The Washington Post recently received access to a database maintained by the Drug Enforcement Administration that tracks the manufacture and distribution of every prescription opioid in the country. It  reported that 76 billion pills were distributed throughout the US between 2006 and 2012, with higher volumes shipped to the areas that were most hard hit with opioid-related overdose deaths. This is being offered as proof that the overprescribing of prescription opioids caused the overdose crisis. But this flies in the face of other powerful evidence. Research reported in the  Journal of Pain Research&nb...

Marijuana legalization is in motion: step by step, state by state. Counting Washington, where I live, twelve states have already passed recreational marijuana legislation. At least seven more states, including New York and Minnesota, both traditionally liberal states, are slated for similar legalization in 2019.  While stopping the weed train is unlikely (there are profits to be made in this new frontier), ensuring that its brakes and safety protocols are in working order is imperative.

AbstractVictims of bullying are more likely to engage in addictive behaviors and experience mental health problems. However, the pathway by which bullying victimization and mental health problems predict engagement in multiple addictive behaviors remains unclear. The purpose of this study is to compare two mediation models in their prediction of engagement in multiple addictive behaviors. Survey responses were collected from 6641 high-school students aged 12 to 19.

AbstractIn May 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially included gaming disorder (GD) in the eleventh revised edition of the International Classification of Diseases. Although the video game industry does not accept the WHO ’s decision to class GD as a genuine mental disorder, there is now arguably an onus on the video game industry to develop and undertake responsible gaming initiatives aimed at player protection and harm minimization. The present paper argues that the gaming industry does not have to “reinvent th e wheel” as there are many responsible gaming tools and initiatives used by the...

Using More to Get High: Building Tolerance According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, tolerance occurs when the person no longer responds to the drug in the way that person initially responded.
