White Coat Waste Project’s (WCW) newest investigation into the National Institutes of Health’s cruel and wasteful “coke hounds” experiments has gone viral. Taxpayers and Members of Congress across the political spectrum have spoken out about this (mis)use of public funds.

Why are people so up in arms? We can’t say for certain, but it may be one of the following:

  1. People love puppies and don’t want to see them suffer in order to fulfill outdated mandates
  2. People hate to see their money wasted (especially when their money is used to hurt puppies)
  3. People already know that cocaine is harmful, because, well, duh

Or, most likely, the answer is:

Within minutes of releasing our investigation, people were talking about it:

…and they were MAD.

The media was shocked, too:

The story even made the FRONT PAGE of the Washington Times:

Rep. Brendan Boyle and Rep. Nancy Mace’s bipartisan letter, demanding information on puppy cocaine experiments, generated its own press coverage, too:


As the story continued reverberating across America, WCW’s SVP Justin Goodman appeared on Jesse Watters Primetime to discuss the ‘coke hound’ experiments, as well as other taxpayer-funded boondoggles:

And before long, other Members of Congress were weighing in:

We think this sums it up concisely:

Looks like the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the division of the NIH that conducted these tests, has a lot of explaining to do.

People are speaking out. And what happens when enough people speak out? Things change.

So what are you waiting for? Take action! Contact Congress and urge them to defund the NIH’s deadly cocaine experiments on puppies.

This is abhorrent!!!


Stop the cruel Experiments on puppies … please …


Stop All Animal Cruelty !!!!


This is pure evil! STOP this criminal abomination!

PURE EVIL!! STOP these criminal abominations!

This is disgusting and the archaic ideas that these people have about research is outright torture and abuse. A glorious day it will be when the Golden Rule is put to truthful application on the people who carry this horrific abuse out on animals in the name of science. Shame 😥😡on them if they are so proud of their work then they should make sure the public all knows their names and exactly what horrific jobs they held at these torture chambers. We have a right to know who’s spending our tax paying dollars and to put faces with it.✌️🌏🌎🌍💯

I think the US has lost it’s brain, due to all the corruption and greed. The US fails: to care for American’s, make good instead of bad, live within nature, create a society worth having, protect the planet. Capitalism, Republicans & Democrats have failed. Poor animals & all life suffers because America failed to be good, instead it is corrupt.

These horrifically cruel experiments must now finally stop, and I am encouraged by the tremendous strength of feeling across the world about this completely unacceptable practice of defenceless animals who continue to endure such pain and suffering,
