STATEMENT: The Partnership at is Not Associated With Kitson’s Rx Drug T-Shirts


The Partnership at, and our national action campaign, The Medicine Abuse Project,  is not associated with Kitson’s prescription drug t-shirts, nor were we contacted by Kitson prior to their announcement of a donation to The Medicine Abuse Project. The Partnership would not entertain any direct donation from Kitson while they flagrantly, and without remorse, continue to sell these products.  On behalf of the parents we work with, many of whom have lost children to prescription drug abuse and addiction, we repeat our plea to remove these shirts from Kitson’s stores and website.

    This is a disgrace. Many people are dying from drug abuse.

    As a mom to a 16 year old boy who nearly died a few weeks ago from a prescription drug overdose, I am mortified by the insensitivity and poor judgement of any company or establishment whom would glorify such a horrible epidemic in this country. Shame on you, Kitson. Your ignorance and lack of social consciousness is appalling.

    Serious poor taste and really bad timing. Freedom of speech? What about regard for the lives of many who die from Rx drug overdoses every year? Fashion as parody…or as supporter of continue trends in prescription drug use?

    Honestly, I feel like this site has done nothing but promote awareness of this shirt, giving it publicity. Many young adults with drug problems visit this site. Most of them are on the fence about their addiction. Seeing this other web site on might appeal to some who would see this as a win for kitson- who “got one” over on drugfree. Think about the psychology here.

    I wanted a t-shirt and I’m a thirty year old with 5 years of sobriety. Not because of what they are promoting, but because it caught my eye. Sadly ,it was a catchy idea that makes the viewer of the t-shirt do a double take. Anything for attention now days, whether that is good or bad. I agree that this website should not be promoting negativity. It made my stomach turn when I had read the full caption of the article, but I am a bit more self concious of my actions and what I wear now days;)
