Vancouver Police Seek to Eradicate Safe Use

open letter to the Vancouver Police Department

by Ballard Quass, the Drug War Philosopher




October 27, 2023

The following is my emailed complaint to the Vancouver Police Department regarding the contents of their press release entitled "VPD executes search warrants in Downtown Eastside drug investigation."

The Drug War is insane. By its anti-scientific logic, you now apparently feel compelled to PREVENT SAFE USE by serving warrants on those guilty of the crime of trying to keep substance users ALIVE!

PLEASE: End the hateful war on drugs and stop persecuting those who try to save lives.

THERE WAS NO OPIOID CRISIS WHEN OPIUM WAS LEGAL. THE PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY PROHIBITION, WHICH ENSURES A DUBIOUS DRUG SUPPLY AND REFUSES TO EDUCATE USERS ABOUT SAFE USE.


What You Can SHOULD Do



Sign the petition. Tell the VPD to stop punishing safe use! Or contact the Vancouver Police Department directly at vpd@vpd.ca.
