Drug Law Reform
August 27 @ 19:30 - 21:00 AESTFree
Ash will talk about about the challenge to embrace compassionate evidenced based reform in a world of stigma and prejudice. Following his presentation, there will be time for discussion and questions from participants. Ash is very ready to hear opposing views, and we anticipate a lively discussion!
Ash Blackwell has been actively involved in drug policy reform since 2012. For the last 5 years he has helped produce a weekly community radio show called Enpsychedelia on 3CR radio. Enpsychedelia is about “harm reduction and drug law reform activism, a counter voice to current drug narratives. Breathing reality into the myths, fabrications and distortions that exist around drugs”. In 2016 he ran as a candidate for the Drug Law Reform Party. He is a co-founder and board member for Students for Sensible Drug Policy Australia, a national organisation pushing for compassionate and evidence based drug policy.
