My name is Iliajah Pidskalny, and I’m attempting to cycle from Saskatoon, SK to Vancouver, BC in January 2021 to bring awareness to the overdose crisis in Canada. All proceeds go to the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition (CDPC) and Moms Stop The Harm (MSTH).
It’s time (long overdue) for humanity to change its approach on drug policies. Let’s look at the research and realize that the war on drugs has been a complete failure. It’s time to stop criminalizing people for needing help. It’s time to start asking ourselves, “why are drugs being used in the first place?” and to shed light on the socioeconomic and psychological factors which coerce people into a life of drug abuse and crime, if not suicide.
