I CARE FOR MY BRAIN
This campaign demands a unique warning sign which tells us about the presence of psychoactive substances on any product we buy.
We know that both legal and illegal psychoactive drugs demand caution, since they affect brain function, producing alterations in sensation, perception, mood, consciousness, cognition, and behavior.
We believe that product labeling is the main component of a comprehensive public health strategy, that aims to reduce, both legal and illegal, psychoactive substances-related harm.
We vote: “Yes, I demand a unique warning sign, which tells me about the presence of psychoactive substances on any product I buy”
