I wrote a (somewhat controversial) article for The Spectator Australia about pill testing. In it, I advocated for the legalisation of pill testing in all Australian jurisdictions. Here’s a sample of what I wrote:
‘We are a liberal democratic society. As such, we should be tolerant and understanding of those putting their lives at risk because of the self-inflicted danger to which they are exposed. Legalising drug testing in Australian jurisdictions would save the lives of ambitious, and naïve (not unintelligent), young people.’
