On the 15th of September Hamish and I hosted the NewstalkZB show “The Nutters Club.”
We talked with Deborah Small, an American lawyer & drug law reform advocate visiting Aotearoa New Zealand to contribute to the conversation about drug reform ahead of the referendum on marijuana. Small shared her experience of seeing the damage that treating drug use as a criminal issue causes in society, and some of the benefits she sees of treating it as a health issue. Small works with Break the Chains, an American organisation that aims to build a movement in communities of colour to support drug policy reform with the goal of replacing failed drug polices with alternatives based in science, compassion, public health and human rights.
With thanks to NZ on Air.
