Inspired by the Honourable Carolyn Bennett’s Historic Visit to Compassion Club, DULF Continues Giving Out Free Drugs to Commemorate Hundreds of Lives Lost to Overdose in August

 

DULF Applauds Bravery of Honorable Minister’s September 6th Visit to Unsanctioned Site by Giving Out 10.5 Grams of Community Regulated Supply to BCAPOM Membership

 

Vancouver, BC – 3.5 grams of community regulated cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine, 10.5 grams total, has been distributed to commemorate the British Columbians who died of overdose in August 2022, and to commemorate the Federal Minister of Mental Health and Addictions’ September 6 visit to the DULF’s Compassion Club and Fulfillment Centre, which is now finishing it's second month of operation, and has sold over 300 grams of drugs without a single overdose. This giveaway is the tenth such distribution of drugs, and part of DULF’s Dope On Arrival Program. By giving away a regulated supply of drugs, the Drug User Liberation Front (DULF) and the BC Association of People on Opiate Maintenance (BCAPOM), continue to demonstrate the life-saving potential of a community-led response to the overdose crisis.

 

In the face of bureaucratic stagnation, the DULF applauds such a monumental moment of political leadership by a many-hat-wearing, zoom-meeting-having, bureaucratic-powerhouse. In the words of DULF Co-Fouder, Eris Nyx:

 

"Hello? Can you hear me?"
