While these kinds of drug harm-ranking studies may be useful, it’s worth taking some care in engaging with the findings: 1) To state the obvious, drug harm-ranking studies are exclusively focussed on ‘harms’, which obscures the potential pleasures, benefits etc of alc & drug use

You could be right. I used to ascribe to the two views/ one household theory until Trump. Too much at stake- I couldn't reconcile myself to living with someone who genuinely supports the erosion of the rule of law.

I think for a lot of the reasons listed in the above tweets- shame, fear of retribution, money. That doesn't exonerate her though. She should quit, but I can understand why she doesn't.

Scientists expected Arctic permafrost to melt as the hits, but not this early. Not 70 years early. We need to cut emissions to zero, fast.

I reckon Conway 100% agrees with her husband, and his commentary is her way of signalling this to the public.

Replying to @taylorswift13
Isn't anyone going to ask why the protesters are represented as stereotypical "rednecks"? It's great Taylor Swift is celebrating pride but did she have to recycycle the "uneducated, poor white trash" trope to do it?? She's literally juxtaposing the beautiful rich ppl to the poor.

Me on ACA last night. This kind of harsh treatment is a leftover from the 1950s when ppl who used drugs were ‘bad’ and needed to be punished. It wouldn’t be tolerated in any other health setting.

I write about addiction/ mental health for MSM publications and often have my titles changed. There’s such a difficult balance between wanting to draw in readers and get some traction online, and wanting to avoid sensationalism. I always try to suggest a title that does both!

“Feeding the monster”? “Free heroin clinic”? “A chance at being human again”? Come on ! Check your language! People who use drugs ARE human beings, rx heroin is provided through publicly funded health care, and part of treatment (not feeding the monster).
