I am a biology teacher at Portland Community College. One of the things I really want my non-majors biology students to learn is to use data and critical thinking. I am disappointed that I am only hearing about actual data with regard to reducing harm programs from the scientist David Duncan, while the scientist from Harvard, Bertha Madras cites no studies. The discussion leaves me thinking that Bertha Madras has an opinion but no data for me to evaluate. I am just suppose to take her word for it that harm reduction programs are bad. Very frustrating to me. I would like to know what the science is, not what she thinks personally.
