Excellent discussion. I much prefer Earl Thiessen's take on "decriminalization" over how it is actually done.

"We wouldn't be having this conversation, Adam, if safe supply was around when I was using." And I wouldn't be sitting here commenting on this, either, if it was around when I was using.

Thank you for sharing!
