 The Handmaid's Tale already appropriates
 oppression experience by WoC all over the
 world and just paints it in whiteface so this
 honestly doesn't surprise me. It's only
 considered a tragedy or a womens issue
 when it's applied to white women. Gross.

Crime, Driving, and Drugs: Going to try party drugs?
 *I'm not gonna give vou a preach now
 just asking for a little favour
 This is from me (an EMT) to you.

 1. Remember the name(s) of what
 you took.~
 2. If vou only know the slang
 name, ask (the person you get it
 from) what kind of drug it's
 similar to.
 3. Tell a good friend what you toolk
 in case you won't be able to if
 something happens.
 4. If you don't know what you
 took, remember how it looked
 (color, form, taste, amount)
 5. Please don't lie to the
 paramedics

 We are not the police.
 *We hate interrogating, we love
 helping.
 We won't tell you off for taking
 drugs.
 *You don't even know what a terrible
 liar you are when you're drunk.
 *Telling us that "someone must have
 put it in my drink" is getting old.

 Telling us what you
 took:
 Will actually make us quite happy,
 because you're honest.
 Will make us treat you like an adult.
 Will un-complicate everything.
 Will make us stop annoying you
 (asking questions) and maybe give you
 a break.
 Will shorten your hospital stay.
 Can spare you of unnecessary/
 uncomfortable tests and treatments.
 Will make the ambulance ride less scary
 and more comforting;

 We are actually quite nice people and
 we'll always listen if you wanna talk
 Sincerely, your EMT

this is so important

Also important information: A cop cannot arrest you for something you already took. You can tell a cop to his face that you just injected black tar heroin in your veins and as long as you don’t currently have any on you (including things like syringes or residue in a pipe), there’s fuck all he can do about it.
