|HIV Meds & Recreational drugs
Dec 23, 2004
I am the Program Manager for the Positive Images program here in Los Angeles County. First let me complement you on your web site, as I have found it very useful over the past four years. This brings me to my question. I am in the middle of reconstructing my web site www.posimages.com and I wanted to include a brief fact type information sheet in regards to HIV meds and Recreational drugs.

Thank you so much & Happy Holidays,
