As such, our drug harm reduction focus this year was not on a “Just Say No,” or “Don’t Do Drugs” message. Instead, we concentrated on getting precautionary information out about the safest way to use drugs if you make a decision to take them.
This purely informative, non-moral approach on student drug use was a first for us and for other participating universities. We have worked with the Ana Liffey Drug Project, DITSU & TCDSU to create and promote an online pool of resources for interested students.
These resources give an important message, with a pragmatic focus – it is always safest not to use drugs at all, but if you do choose to do so, that it is vital to have access to unbiased, evidence based information.
