There is a better way to regulate the use of drugs in Australia.

  • A way that supports Australians who use drugs, rather than punishing them.

  • A way that reduces harm.

  • A way that has huge economic and social benefits while reducing reliance on the black market.

  • A way that creates a safer system for our community.

Drug Policy Australia proudly advocates for a repair of Australia’s drug laws that would ultimately lead to a legally regulated system.

Renowned international author Johann Hari, former High Court Justice The Hon Michael Kirby, and leading addiction specialist Dr John Sherman have all joined the movement.

I am one of 8 million otherwise law-abiding Australians who have used an illicit drug during their lifetime. I speak on behalf of the vulnerable and disenfranchised who will continue to use drugs regardless of the law. 

I put this case on behalf of all Australians who have been prosecuted, demeaned, and vilified for drug use, and for the many who have lost their freedom and even their lives pursuing an activity that should not be a crime. 

Surely there is a Better Way?

Join Johann Hari live for the Australian premiere of The Fix

Drug Policy Australia is screening the Australian Premier of The Fix narrated by Samuel L Jackson and the much-anticipated new release Hollywood blockbuster movie Elvis.

The Fix, narrated by Samuel L Jackson and based on Johann Hari’s 'Chasing the Scream', explores the drug wars in the United States and society's understanding of drugs and addiction. 

Double Feature

Elvis, a movie extravaganza by Baz Luhrmann starring Austin Butler and Oscar winner Tom Hanks, explores Elvis Presley's life and music from his early life in Tennessee and his meteoritic rise to almost mythical status as the most famous performer in history.

Elvis’s dramatic fall from grace while battling food and drug addiction underscores that addiction is part of the human condition and can happen to anyone.

Johann Hari will join us live on Zoom to discuss the making of ‘The Fix’ and his new book Stolen Focus.
