Exclamation Raves: Harm Reduction or Prohibiton? - March 5th 2009, 01:23 PM

The title says it all, should we as a people be trying to prohibit an event and part of culture that many enjoy and attend or should we be focused on harm reduction at these events?

I personally believe that we should focus on harm reduction. Offer medical advise, continue to promote drug awareness and make sure there is proper supervision as well as trained people who would be able to handle medical emergencies such as an overdose.

What are your views?

In an ideal world? Yes, a world in which war is no longer needed should be humanities aim. At the moment, sadly, war is necessary sometimes. Anyway, they're rather unrelated issues.

As for the main question. Yes I think harm reduction would be a better way of looking at it. Whether it is prohibited or not people will still do it and prohibition stops people seeking help when things go wrong.

People are going to involve themselves with drugs and illegal substances, no matter what we may do to prohibit it. By promoting harm reduction, it would lessen the damage done and possibly help those who do find themselves in an unfortunate situation because of it.

There will still be raves even if we have prohibition.

The raves will still go on, even if we do prohibit them. So, I think harm reduction would be the best solution.
