Thanks Julian, 

I had accessed sixthseal a couple of years ago - it was the only website I
could find that had pictures of crystal meth smoking using a special glass
pipe; I needed pictures for a display I was putting together on the drug! It
was a fascinating website, interesting that it has lead to him serving time
in prison for possession, yet he STILL wants to continue blogging. 

Interesting to see how people are using the comments under that 2003 post to
talk about their drug use, and that this has continued for 3 years in the
same post. Is this normal for blog posts? 

thanks
monica

Dear Monica,

I don't know of a relevant database, but this blog (www.sixthseal.com)
recounting the personal use of drugs has a wide readership and discussions
in the comments. It has been going for three years and is very interesting.

Recently, the Malaysian author stopped posting about drugs as he was exposed
in a Malaysian newspaper as 'promoting drug use' etc. But there are still
many posts available - e.g.
