Policies focused on reducing harms and understanding people’s complex needs have produced far more positive results. A compassionate approach means understanding complex problems and appropriately resourcing responses that actually work.International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) is a global event held on 31 August each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death. Originating in Melbourne 2001, the day acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends by remembering those we have lost, or those who have sustained a permanent injury as the result of drug overdose. Our minds immediately go to illegal drugs when discussing overdose, however alcohol and prescription medication are two of our biggest killers.In honour of loved ones lost and dearly missed, our aim is to raise awareness and reduce stigma within our communities around this significant health issue.Guest speakersFamilies and people with lived experience of the impact of drug overdoseMC – Jason Vandy (Aaron Short Awareness Association)Mick ColtonCherie ShortDebbie Warner (APOD)Professionals:Prof. Margaret Hamilton AOSam Biondo (Victorian Alcohol And Drugs Association)Sione Crawford (Harm Reduction Victoria)Dr. Nico Clark (Medically Supervised Injecting Room)Politicians:Martin Foley MP (State Member for Albert Park, VIC Minister for Mental Health)Fiona Patten MLC (Northern Metro – Reason Party)Dr. Tim Read MP (Member for Brunswick – Victorian Greens) Supporters:Alcohol Prescription & Other Drugs Family Support (APOD)Addiction and the Family International Network (AFINet)Harm Reduction Victoria (HRVic)Victorian Alcohol And Drugs Association (VAADA)Aaron Short Awareness AssociationNorth Richmond Community HealthFamily Drug Support

An oral history of the movement of people who use drugsIn this episode of the oral history of the movement of people who use drugs, we learn about the successes and challanges in Australia, from four veterans of the user movement.The history of the movement of people who use drugs in Australia is a long and rich one. It is one of the few countries that has funded user organisations for over 30 years now.In this episode of our series, four veterans of the user movement in Australia tell us the oral history of the movement. Jude Byrne from the Australian Injecting and Illicit Drug Users League (AIVL), Annie Madden and Charles Henderson from the New South Wales Users and AIDS Association (NUAA) and Geoffrey Ward from the Canberra Alliance for Harm Minimisation and Advocacy (CAHMA).In the 80s when HIV appeared among people who inject drugs, the Australian government wisely responded by involving injecting drug users into designing and implementing the response. This approach resulted in minimising HIV infections among users in the Country. The Activists successfully advocated for the opening of medically supervised injecting rooms, first in Sydney and recently in Melbourne. Naloxone distribution is run by the user groups as well.Despite their successes, their work is far from being done. They tirelessly fight to end prohibition and the harms arising from it: the drug testing at dance festivals, which results in the death of young people, because out of fear of being caught, they swallow their week's dose of drug; the drug testing of drivers for cannabis, when your license is taken away if you test positive, even though you used days before; or the removal of children from their drug using mothers, regardless of how she treats her child.In this episode we also learn about how New Zealand successfully responded to the HIV epidemic by being one of the first countries to have a national needle and syringe exchange program.

Standing With The Waters : A Benefit Album For Standing Rockby Aquatic CollectiveStanding With The Waters : A Benefit Album For Standing Rock by Aquatic CollectiveKathleen Harrison - Veins Of Light: Feminine Awareness & Visionary MedicineEntheogenesis Australis Dec 8th 2017, Melbourne Australia. Synopsis What is the role of feminine awareness in relationship to visionary species? We often personify powerful plant species as spirits, many of them female. We can examine how this perception affects our relationship with them and their effect on us.Curiosity, compassion, and truth-telling are qualities that plants and mushrooms sometimes exhibit, just as we do. Let's follow that line of thought together. Bio Kathleen Harrison, M.A., is an ethnobotanist who has worked in the field since the 1960s.She is informed by long relationships with indigenous healers, California subcultures, an array of expert naturalists, and her own decades of psychedelic curiosity. She co-founded the organization Botanical Dimensions with Terence McKenna in 1985, and continues as its perennial Program Director, initiating ongoing projects in Mexico, Peru, California and Hawaii.Kat has taught globally for both universities and many conferences. She is currently based and teaching at the Botanical Dimensions Ethnobotany Library, in Northern California. She specializes in the study of nature-based worldviews, patterns of belief, ritual, healing, art and the plants that live where they evolved.

Why not try meth with The Seven NetworkAuthor:Katie Horneshaw, Op Ed columnist and features writerReviewers:Dr Stephen Bright, Senior Lecturer of Addiction at Edith Cowan UniversityDr Liam Engel, Adjunct Research Fellow at Edith Cowan UniversityFeatured image: Promotional image for 7News’ documentary, Ben Cousins: Coming Clean.Disclaimer: The author takes full responsibility for the content of this article.On the evening Sunday the 29th of March, Channel Seven aired a one hour program about former AFL player Ben Cousins called “Coming Clean”. In the opening sequence, the audience is greeted with footage of Ben from ten years ago, polished and media-trained. “I hope this documentary can send a powerful message about how addiction affects your life,” he warns, before the camera cuts dramatically to Ben in 2020. It’s a shock. He stares straight at the camera, media-friendly smile wiped away, visibly aged, a long beard and shaggy ponytail obscuring much of his face. He croakily finishes the spiel that former Ben began: “But I feel there are some real lessons to be learnt here. And I think some good can come from it, for everyone”If there was any hope that Seven might at least aim for objectivity in what was promoted as a “documentary”, it’s lost within these first few frames. Ben’s decades of struggles are whittled down to a spectacular opening sequence which frames the documentary’s central theme: Ben Cousins, the AFL star turned jobless, criminal, addict.“Brownlow to garbo, inside a jail”, Basil Zempilas contemplates at one stage, with pantomimed disbelief.Still, the piece could have functioned as a legitimate cautionary tale, had there been some attempt by Seven to contextualise Ben’s journey within a framework of punitive drug policy, stigma, the pressures of fame, and party culture; or to educate viewers on how one might reduce the harms that Ben has endured in their own lives. Instead, Ben Cousins is trotted out like a wind-up monkey and his sad story reduced to spectacle.READ MORE at AODMEDIAWATCH.COM.AU

Here’s how to reduce the harmsPeople who use illicit drugs, whether they are dependent or use them occasionally, are potentially at increased risk of harm during the coronavirus pandemic.The coronavirus is too new to know the exact interaction with illicit drugs. There has been no peer reviewed research yet, and we don’t know how many people who have contracted the virus also use drugs.However, we can estimate some of the possible impacts from what we know generally about drugs, their effects on the body, and how people use them, including in times of increased stress.Regardless of your views on illicit drugs, reducing the harms from drug use during the pandemic will improve the well-being of people who use them, and those close to them. Reducing harms will also help avoid additional pressure on the health system.Interview with Michelle and Jen from Covidpolicing.org.auVolunteers lawyers from Melbourne Activist Legal SupportCOVIDPOLICING WEEKLY ROUNDUP #2Now in its second week of operation, the Covid Policing website has had and additional 32 reports concerning police interactions.

Nicotine and vaping in AustraliaWhere's the smoke?Documentary maker and author John Safran has turned his attention to vaping in Australia. He's currently research a book into the state of vaping and joins us on Enpsychedelia to share some of his research so far, and to hear updates from experts and community members.GUESTSDr. Colin Mendelsohn - Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction AssociationColin is a Conjoint Associate Professor in the School of Public Health and Community Medicine at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. He was a general practitioner for 27 years and now works as a Tobacco Treatment Specialist helping smokers to quit. He has a special interest in the use of less harmful alternatives to smoked tobacco for smokers who are unable to quit (tobacco harm reduction).He is a member of the Expert Advisory Group that develops the Australian national smoking cessation guidelines and is past Vice President of the Australian Association of Smoking Cessation Professionals, Australia’s peak body for experts in the field of smoking cessation.Colin is actively involved in teaching health professionals and research in smoking cessation and has published widely in the field.For more information, visit his website at www.colinmendelsohn.com.auBrian Marlow - Legalise Vaping AustraliaBrian Marlow is Legalise Vaping Australia’s Campaign Director.Legalise Vaping Australia was formed in 2017 as a joint initiative of MyChoice Australia and the Australian Taxpayers' Alliance, as a unique grassroots advocacy and activist organisation. Legalise Vaping Australia is dedicated to campaigning for the legalisation and risk proportionate regulation of vaping and e-cigarettes across Australia.While we all know the best way to eliminate harm caused by smoking is to quit smoking completely, for those who are unable to quit, moving to smoke-free products provides an opportunity for better health and an improved life.E-cigarettes and vapes are endorsed by the National Health Service in the United Kingdom and Public Health England as being a better alternative to smoking and more effective for smoking cessation than nicotine-replacement therapy. Legalise Vaping Australia and its community of supporters are working to legalise vaping in Australia, ensuring Australian smokers have access to these less-harmful devices.The Legalise Vaping Australia campaign is funded by supporters via donations and sales of campaign merchandise. We have not and we will not accept funds from the tobacco industry.Along with the help of experts and leading researchers, the Legalise Vaping Australia team is engaged with key politicians across Australia and across the political spectrum to find the right regulatory balance that ensures these products are available to all Australian smokers who are trying to quit.

Harm reduction is a broad approach to drug policies, programmes and practices that aim to reduce the harms associated with the use of psychoactive drugs in people unable or unwilling to stop. The defining features are the focus on the prevention of harm, rather than on the prevention of drug use itself, and the focus on people who continue to use drugs.Peer workers are vital to harm reduction. They bring the wisdom, knowledge and connections needed to prevent and reduce harm in our community.GUESTSPeter Wearne, Chair of Yarra Drug and Health ForumAssoc.

Today's show was recorded live at Rainbow Serpent Festival in January this year.The video is available to watch on Rainbow's YouTube channel.We're hoping to do a second part to this panel at Rainbow Serpent Festival in 2020 and focus deeper on current issues, but always with context to the broader story.Subscribe to our podcast, follow us on Facebook and Twitter and get in contact with us if you have something to share. Sorry for this cheesy intro. I was tired and getting a little too sensual with the microphone.Our topic was Australian Festivals and the Culture Wars. A topic familiar to regular listeners of this show.Our focus on this show is drug policy. We talk about policy in a broad sense: Our laws, social conventions, education, justice system and so on.Underneath this all is the reality of human lives.And for as long as there has been humanity, there has been a quest to explore new frontiers.But, there is always also a wondering, a pondering. How far is too far? Which paths should be less tread?And, in response, some choose to quest anyway, wondering whether what is said to be, really is?
