How do we speak about the issues we deal with?

Often the debate is led by those pushing for change. In the development of drug policy, it's often those pushing for legalisation who set the tone and the 'narrative'. They talk of compassion and so on, but what are the real issues?

In this excellent Opinion article, Shane Varcoe of the Dalgarno Institute, argues for 'changing the narrative'.

He concludes, "Let us be very clear, we are not conducting a ‘war against drugs’. We are however fighting for the brains, potentials, and in many instances, the very future of an entire emerging generation. That for any caring civic minded human being is a fight worth having, and one worth joining!"
