Thanks to scientific research supported by NIDA and others, we learned a lot about drugs and drug use in 2019. And we talked about it right here on the Drugs & Health Blog.  

We gave you the latest on:

  • Vaping-related illnesses and deaths
  • How drugs re-program your brain
  • The facts about CBD

…and that’s just a start!

Below, we’ve listed the top blog posts from 2019, grouped by category. For more drug news, check out the 2018 Blog Roundup or scroll down and explore the blog categories on the right-hand side of this page.
