I cannot even imagine what losing a child to drugs would be like. Lord knows I've thought about it a lot. For a while, I was terrified that it might happen to me. And I'd be lying if I said it's not something I still think about from time to time when I allow my mind to wander out of the moment.
The time has come to end the stigmatization and criminalization of nonviolent drug users, and make lifesaving drugs available to those who need them. We want a revolutionary drug policy rooted in science, compassion and equity. And we want it now.
