Canadian Advocates Meet Overdose Crisis With Clean Drugs


More than 10,000 people have died from drug overdoses in the province of British Columbia in the past six years, with the vast majority of deaths driven by impurities in street drugs, and advocates at the Drug Users Liberation Front (DULF), a Canadian advocacy group, have pledged to fight the crisis by selling pure forms of cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin to users, in defiance of a federal government order to stop, reports The Guardian. The group argues its plan is the only way to save lives. It intends to fight Canada’s public health agency after Ottawa rejected its proposal to supply pure drugs to users.
