Want to help with my research on harm reduction? Any of these things would be enormously helpful!
- Support me on Patreon!
- Research is expensive, and I now have a baby to care for too. Please consider sending some diapers or baby wipes my way using this Amazon wishlist 🙂
- I’m no longer looking for people to interview, but I would still love to hear from you if you’re willing to share your thoughts, opinions, stories and/or experiences in writing! Drug user or not, former or current raver, any gender, any age, any background.
- Do you have a solid working knowledge of Canadian drug laws? I would love to chat with you! Sorting through them myself has been a big chore.
- Give me feedback on my posts. If you think I’m right or wrong about something, or have an insight on a topic to share, leave a comment!
Want to help with harm reduction in the rave/electronic music scene in general?
- Educate yourself and your friends on harm reduction. (Good resources: Trip, Rollsafe.org, DanceSafe, /r/MDMA and /r/Drugs.) Let them know that if they’re ever not feeling well at an event, they can come to you and you’ll help them, with no judgement.
- Educate yourself and your friends on the real reason for the harms that come from drugs: Prohibition. Here are some tips for how. A badass ex-cop explains why drug prohibition needs to end in the video below.
- Share water, earplugs and knowledge.
- When there’s no free water available at events, badger the hell out of the event organizers about it. It’s illegal and immoral.
- Use a test kit and tell your friends about them.
- Join the Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy (CSSDP). See if there’s a chapter at your school. If it doesn’t exist, start one!
- Volunteer for the TRIP! Project.
