Novel Psychoactive Substances or NPS is a term used to refer to any drug that is considered to be new. The term is used inconsistently, with some organisations (including government departments) lumping in less known about older drugs to the NPS category. Harm Reduction Victoria are presenting a seminar on NPS, on Tuesday the 28th […]
New drugs are entering the market at a pace that far exceeds our ability to have good information about a drug and its effects, both short and long term. And prohibition provides the fertile grounds for these drugs to be sold in often misleading ways. This is a situation primed for unintended harms to occur. […]

A campaign was launched today in Queensland by the Police called: New Synthetic Drugs: Real Damage The campaign uses heavy anti-drug rhetoric to build its claims and distort the inconvenient facts about the products and substances they are attacking.
I’m reading a book at the moment entitled ‘Synthetic Panics‘, which goes through the various moral panics that have arisen around drugs since they were first synthesised and used for recreational purposes. Although we’ve recently heard a lot about ‘synthetic drugs’, the plants and fungi of the known psychoactive world have also turned up in […]

Around 80 years ago a campaign was mounted against cannabis, warning of the apparent moral degradation and psychological ills that would befall the consumer of this plant. A scare-campaign film was funded by a Church group and perfectly encapsulates the feeling of the time in its title: Reefer Madness. Much of the fear turned out […]
Back in 2010, the trashy British publication The Sun tried to take on DMT and frame it as, “The new crystal meth.” When I read the article, which is posted below, I found it so utterly ridiculous that I filed a complaint with both The Sun and the PCCC. The PCCC is obligated by law […]
