Live Blogging from DARE Conference

I’m sitting in a session that’s about parents who provide alcohol to teenagers in controlled settings and how “irresponsible” those parents are. The instructor just gave a speech about harm reduction actually being “harm promotion” and made an analogy about parents teaching their kids how to “shoplift responsibly.” Riiiight. Perfect analogy. Because every high school student shoplifts the night of prom and then tries to drive home while putting on the dress/tux they just snatched up, resulting in deadly collisions. The logic is flawless.
