The 'What’s in the Powder?’ campaign is the result of a collaboration between three Dublin universities – DIT, TCD, and UCD - and the Ana Liffey Drug Project. Resources created include posters and factsheets, which will be distributed on campus as well as promoted on social media and via the drugs.ie website.

The campaign builds on the success of the partnership achieved with the recent 'What's in the Pill?' campaign - now supported by 15 third level institutes and the Union of Students in Ireland.

Following the launch of the What's in the Powder? campaign on April 1st 2016 we will be making the campaign poster and factsheet available to all institutes of education and relevant organisations. Organisations just need to provide us with a copy of their logo and we will provide them with a customised factsheet and poster - free of charge. For more information email info@drugs.ie 

The campaign features harm reduction information, including the following: A number of different types of drugs come in white powder form. When buying illicit white powders you can never be fully sure of the contents. Generally white powders are uppers (stimulant), downers (sedative) or trippy (hallucinogen). Some examples of substances that come in white powder are, stimulants: cocaine, amphetamine, MDMA, mephadrone; sedatives: ketamine, GHB, PCP; hallucinogens: 2C-B; N-Bomb; Alpha-Methyltryptamine.

It is always safest not to take unknown or illicit drugs at all. But if you do decide to take powders the campaign provides useful advice and access to factsheets….
