TEENAGERS curious about trying drugs now have anonymous access to information about their effects through a recorded telephone service provided by the Action Committee Against Narcotics.

The automated information service, which started on January 8, replaces the former drug abuse telephone inquiry hotline, which has been providing information since 1977.

The committee is confident anonymity will encourage people to seek information about illicit drugs such as cocaine, heroin and marijuana, but also legal drugs such as tranquillisers, alcohol and tobacco.
