Drugs: Costs & Consequences

Opening Eyes to the Damage Drugs Cause

Testimonials - Albuquerque, NM 2019

The comments were created by visitors to Drugs: Costs & Consequences in Albuquerque, NM on the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science Memorial Wall.

The Drugs exhibition was deeply meaningful for the residents of New Mexico. It seems that almost everyone has a friend or family member whose lives have been impacted by drug abuse. The associated lectures and community events were very well attended and school group visits resulted in many good discussions. We have continued these partnerships and made many friends.

Drugs affect your brain.

I snorted coke once, I saw how bad it was. But seeing what it did to my brain really scares me. Thank you for teaching me how bad it is.

Good to have at a children’s museum!


The exhibit is not a “one and done” exhibit. The community relations impact between civic, health, and educational organizations along with collaborations with government, the courts, law enforcement, schools, media, and elected officials was extraordinary. We were proud to be the catalyst, working with DEA, to improve the lives of so many in our region. Reaching students and families with this comprehensive, content-rich exhibit created synergy with our donor community, as well.
