  1. Harm reduction should address the specific needs of couples who inject drugs

    Programmes usually address individuals but most equipment sharing occurs between sexual partners The sharing of drug injecting equipment most often occurs between sexual partners, but the ways in which couples manage risks and care for each other have been largely ignored by harm reduction services, say Australian researchers. In-depth interviews showed that drug users’ relationships were based on mutual trust, honesty and care. Couples tried to avoid sharing their equipment but when they...
  2. Could an auto logic checker be the solution to the fake news problem?

    Fake news is not news – that is, it is not in fact news, and the matter of fake news is not a recent revelation. But while fake news is a thorny problem that needs addressing in its own right, it is part of an even bigger issue too. Discourse –- the process by which humanity collectively comes to an understanding of itself, and so shapes its own future –- is fundamentally broken. The problem begins with the school debate, a win-or-lose scenario where one party ultimately triumphs in the...

  4. Woody Harrelson swears off marijuana after 30 years.

    One of Hollywood's biggest, most outspoken pot enthusiasts has retired his rolling papers. On Monday, Woody Harrelson told Vulture that he hasn't smoked pot in nearly a year. The 55-year-old, who has spent over a decade on the advisory board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, said he'd simply had enough after "30 solid years of partying," and said the drug kept him from "being emotionally available." His remaining vice? Drinking alcohol in moderation. Think...
  5. Authorities: Man errantly texted prosecutor about drug swap.

    EDWARDSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a man mistakenly sent a text message to a Pennsylvania prosecutor indicating that he wanted to trade marijuana for heroin. Luzerne County prosecutors say Assistant District Attorney Jill Matthews received a text Nov. 2 using drug lingo that they called an "obvious text for a drug deal." They say she later received a photo of a plastic bag containing a green substance on a scale. Authorities said 29-year-old John Raimondo, of Plymouth, was arrested...
  6. From opium to fentanyl: How did we get here?

    Vancouver has always had a drug problem. Only the opioids of choice — and the increasingly staggering death toll — have changed over the years. The fringes of Chinatown have always been the center of Canada’s opiate trade. Ever more potent and easily smuggled versions emerged through the decades, culminating in the scourge of synthetic opiates — fentanyl and carfentanil — thousands of times more powerful and many times more deadly than opium.
  7. Pot for pets? Owners treat sick animals with cannabis

    SAN FRANCISCO – Michael Fasman’s 12-year-old dog, Hudson, limps from pain caused by arthritis and an amputated toe, but Fasman doesn’t want to give her painkillers because “they just knock her out.” So the San Francisco resident has turned to an alternative medicine that many humans use to treat their own pain and illness: marijuana. On a recent morning, Fasman squeezed several drops of a cannabis extract onto a plate of yogurt, which the Portuguese water dog lapped up in seconds. It’s...
  8. Famous People Offer Their Own Experiences in Coping With Mental Health Concerns

    Glenn Close does not read her reviews. So the jumbo excerpt on the marquee where she is reprising her Tony Award-winning role in “Sunset Boulevard” (“One of the great stage performances of this century”), surrounded by flashing lights, may be a spoiler. “You still have to go out the next night no matter what they write,” she said. Still, the actress, 69, who has won three Tony Awards and three Emmy Awards, and has been nominated for six Academy Awards for her work in films such as “Fatal...

    Longtime landlord Darryl Spencer was left scrambling for insurance after discovering a tenant was growing dozens of medical marijuana plants inside and outside his rental house. When the landlord told his insurance company about the perfectly legal grow-op, his coverage was cancelled, leaving him with no insurance, few rights and a big cleanup bill.

  13. Myanmar has a drug problem

    There is little disagreement that Myanmar, despite a recent shift from military to semi-democratic rule, remains one of the world’s largest producers of illicit drugs, including opium, heroin, methamphetamine and other synthetic narcotics. Two recent reports promote fundamentally different approaches to the deep-seated drug problem, which has its roots in decades of civil war in frontier areas between government troops, ethnic rebel forces struggling for political autonomy and other warlord...
