• Welcome to our new Research Assistant!

    Please welcome toscablue (Nadine van Gelder) to the Bluelight research assistant position, who will also have a moderating role on Drug Studies.

    toscablue will help me liaise with researchers who may wish to donate for banner space or to access our archives for research.

    She will also join neversickanymore at Drug Studies: focusing on sorting through all of our research studies, matching older studies up with publications, to illustrate how Bluelight is contributing to research more broadly.

    toscablue joins us from Amsterdam - she has held a variety of research assistant roles in the drugs area, most recently working at the EMCDDA, so she has some on-ground drug-research skills to offer.

    So, thanks and welcome!

      I am not a coke user but, I would be interested into some of the research. Can you provide a source? With only limited(but growing) success behind medicinal marijuana I would think it to be a nearly impossible feat to make cocaine an accepted treatment in the medical world. Most things are ok in moderation...and to be clear...not hating on coke. It's just not my doc

      1 line of Cocaine HCL a week will guard againts Altzeimers, age-related neurolical and cognitive degeneration, it combats both neural-, and intra-neural cell death and also improves memory formation for short-, and long term memory as well as assists in the formation of new intra-cellular neural dendrite connection pathways and also strengthens existing pathways. But ONLY 1 line per week. Don't know if I would stick to my prescribed dose but for people who are mentally stable with no preexisting psychological disorders or biological based trauma induced risk factors or any addict type behavioural history or habit-forming abuse potential it will work to keep the mind fresh and youthful well into old age.
