Event Description

An educational event in recognition of National Addiction Awareness Week towards de-stigmatizing addiction in our community.

Mark Haden will introduce A Public Health Approach to Illegal Drugs, exploring the concern many maintain about the failures and unanticipated harmful health and social consequences of criminalizing and therefore stigmatizing drug users. The presentation will explore a variety of alternate models of drug control and regulation based on public health principles, introducing the steps we as a society might take to develop public health and human rights options for a regulated market for currently illegal drugs.
