“News from the Drug War Front” is presented by the Canberra Alliance for Harm Minimsation and Advocacy (CAHMA). The show reports on and debates the deaths, misery, damage and harms caused by the prohibition of certain drugs that began on a global scale with the 1961 United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. We aim to educate listeners about the absolute failure and the moral bankruptcy of the ‘war on drugs’ or, to describe it more accurately, the ‘war on people who use drugs’. There is so much misinformation and dishonesty about illicit drugs and illicit drug users that it is difficult for the average citizen to consider the issues in an informed way.
Stories and issues locally, nationally and internationally are reported on and discussed. Upcoming local events or workshops are promoted. A selection of music with themes related to drug use is played during each show.”
