Tigaon mindful of what it calls drugs suspects

0 412

In Tigaon, Camarines Sur, people who once used illegal drugs aren’t given stigmatic tags like “drug addict” or “drug suspect”.

This banner posted by Mayor Chiqui Fuentebella shows that such individuals are referred to as “volunteers / rescued victims of substance abuse”.

That phrase may sacrifice brevity, but not sensitivity.
