Change begins here.
Please consider the following questions:
Is it right that our youth have an incredibly dangerous, toxic and socially problematic drug as their only recreational option?
If there is a safer option why would we ignore and outlaw it or, even worse, stigmatise it?
Alcohol vs. cannabis: Which one is safer and therefore the responsible choice?
If you have ever pondered these questions before, or having read the above are now doing so, GOOD! We hope we can help you find some answers to empower you to make the responsible choice for yourself, your family and our society.
These words came from the mouth of none other than the President of the HEMP party, Michael Balderstone, in the main street of Nimbin in front of thousands of onlookers at this year’s Mardi Grass. At first glance you might be hit by a solid “WTF?!”, but think and look a little closer and you […]
Everything you ever wanted to know about foraging is here! The book that you didn’t even realise needed to be written has been written.

Psilocybin mushrooms […]
Professor Nutt’s MCDA shows psilocybin mushrooms are the least harmful drug.

The Senate Economics Reference […]
Whenever you want to create an illusion you need a distraction, otherwise your sleight of hand is way too obvious and the prestige of the illusion is lost. But what illusion I hear you ask. In this instance the illusion is a common one, however the motivation behind this article (namely anger and frustration) has […]
It’s a beautiful place; shame about the incompetence of their state government when it comes to drug policy. Now in a previous article we saw how Western Australia recently changed their more progressive cannabis laws to possibly the most backward in the country. As such, I was under the false impression that ALL of the […]
The recent political response to the Australia21 report on illicit drug policy in Australia may have seemed positive, but in many ways the report’s release amounts to pretty much what we have seen in this country for the last 50 years or so. An opportunity for tough talk on drugs. This may seem surprising given […]
I know, I know, it’s shocking. Perhaps you thought you, being an occasional cannabis user, or recreational even, didn’t need curing. WRONG, wrong and wrong! Luckily, Jan Copeland from the notorious NCPIC (National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre) has the cure for your cannabis dependence. But how to know if you’re dependent? Well, Jan has […]
On what basis should drugs be classified and regulated? What effects of drug use are considered by most to be acceptable, and conversely unacceptable? These are the questions that arise when one considers the policy of prohibition that is the War on Drugs, of which the Australian government is a participant and combatant. It was […]
