The gov is now defying the will of the Parliament. The conservatives are so bereft of humanity and respect for the rule of law that they have lost the right to govern. I will support any ‘no confidence’ motion moved against this train wreck of a govt. Kick this mob out.

The billion dollar contract surely needs to be revoked now? Even the fact that it’s gone to a liberal party donor, without the Corman stuff, is on the nose.

In the spring of 2015, 63% of Americans said they believed climate change was happening and 52% said they were worried about it. By the end of 2018, belief was at 73% — and almost 70% were worried.

Well *someone I know* told me that a personally-administered dose can also have this effect! I find the research on Ketamine for depression really interesting, too.

Yes! This is great! We all have to be careful to make sure this isn’t us. It takes vigilance and introspection.

(And he’s obviously got a decent strategy to keep from overdosing. Perhaps naloxone on-hand)

You’re doing your job right if you are successfully changing minds! I remember in that part of my course, people simply didn’t want to believe it. The lecturer displayed a photo of Keith Richards and said “Why do you think he’s still alive? B/c he can afford good, pure heroin!”

So many people have such a hard time accepting information when it challenges their assumptions about drugs. Like, when I share that but if trivia about heroin, people never believe me. They just tell me I’m wrong and it ruins your body and that’s the end of the argument...

I’ve heard about the success of heroin assisted therapy. I first learned about the fact that few opioids are inherently harmful (when pure and consumed safely) at uni. I was amazed that my assumptions had been so wrong, but I never had trouble accepting it. I often wonder why..

Yes, as I understand it, pure heroin has practically no primary detrimental effects on the body. Harms associated with it tend to be secondary side-effects that stem mostly from the fact it’s criminalised. (Eg. Hep C, abscesses from lack of access to clean needles) Am I correct?

From a fellow freelance writer who never gets paid anywhere near what I’m worth, good on you for sticking up for a free press despite the consequences. Your words about freelance work rang all too true.

*just to be clear I don’t personally think heroin is morally or health-wise any better or worse than any other drug. But they did!

Yes!! I used to go to festivals and the hippies would have this ridiculous idea that if it came out of the ground it was somehow better for the body/ morally ok. I used to say ok, I’ll just have me some heroin then!
