@YngvildOlsen in fact, whole point of criminalization is to *create and perpetuate* stigma as form of deterrence, so I really don't see how anyone taking a public health perspective can support it for any substance.

@YngvildOlsen @ADAWnews @lac_news @SubstanceAbuseJ @ACLakeMD @tal7291 @coreysdavis @cmoraff @LeoBeletsky @ASAMorg but what about other drugs? why is putting those patients in cage for possession of *any* substance OK? Legalization is another argument, but it shocks me that anyone who works w/adxn can support criminalizing possession, period.
