This was sent out on Groupwise within the Department of Corrections but I thought it would be good to put here
on our website. It is the website that the DEA has Resource for Drug Information/Research - www.justice.gov/dea/concern/concern.htm
It helps to identify drugs and more information.
Hope you find it interesting.
