Harm reduction

When Aaron Gunn was in high school, he heard from guest speakers on why doing hard drugs had serious, deadly consequences.

The Cowichan Valley School District (CVSD) said it should not have allowed harm reduction items to be left out at one of its schools. 

“We were recently made aware of materials that were left at one of our school sites from a third-party harm reduction and drug addiction presentation that we do not consider school or age appropriate,” said the CVSD in a tweet.

This is doublespeak. These are not "harm reduction" products, they are "drug promotion" products.


As long as you’re a leftist a simple apology will do. But if you’re not a leftist any type of apology will not do.
