Poster on New York City subway:
Do you think this normalizes drug use? Mind you … they are talking about illegal and deadly drugs like “heroin, cocaine, crack, methamphetamine.” Thousands of children take the subway to school. Are they seeing: Drugs … it’s ok as long as you do it with a friend, “take turns, start with a small dose, and go slowly”?
Or is this helpful to a population that is already awash in drugs? Drugs that are being increasingly mixed with fentanyl (up to 50 times more potent than heroin)?
