UK government and fentanyl

Criminalisation does not reduce drug use. In 2014, the Home Office itself admitted that there is a “lack of any clear correlation between the ‘toughness’ of an approach and levels of drug use”.

The most ethical form of #addiction treatment is to adopt a #harmreduction perspective and encourage every positive change rather than to insist upon abstinence as the only acceptable goal and chastising and discharging those who fail to achieve it.
