Wendy’s presentation from the Parliamentary Symposium on Drugs

Stigma. Like we’ve said before, it’s bullshit. It keeps people from coming forward and asking for the help they need. It creates an idea of who does and who doesn’t ‘deserve’ help, in spite of desperately needing it. It doesn’t fix any problems or reduce harms caused by using drugs. All stigma does is make conservatives feel better about doing absolutely nothing to help people.
