As the stigma surrounding drug use in Australia slowly dissipates, and policymakers are forced acknowledge the harm that system of criminalisation causes, it seems change is in the wind, and whilst the battle is far from over, a sensible approach to drug policy feels more tangible than ever.
This calls for celebration! And so on Friday night, Melbourne City Bowls Club played host to The Beginning of the End of the War on Drugs Party, presented by APS in conjunction with SSDP.
We had Emily Roseman and DJ Vixen laying down some fresh beats, providing the catalyst for some suitably psychedelic dance moves from some of the attendees. We imagine it was probably the first throbbing drum and bass set the Flagstaff bowls club had heard in a while!
These events are a great opportunity for networking, and we loved seeing like minded individuals connecting and sharing ideas over their beverage of choice. What a way to kick off a big weekend for drug reform in Melbourne. It’s only with your support that we can continue to push this. Big thanks to SSDP and Melbourne City Bowls club. See you at the next shindig!
