(Hi, I did the testing as a volunteer with KnowYourStuffNZ, lead by Wendy Allison. I’ve a day job, so I’ll answer now on my lunchbreak and can answer further questions this evening.)
I appreciate that. And can see lots of scope for expansion. So it's good you said that. My gut instinct, is that what you are doing is sort of like what the needle exchange started. Thru association with people I hung out with from the music industry, I was freands with someone who volunteered at the Simon street needle exchange. This friend wasn't a drug user. They where more into the social work. Harm reduction and health promotion. There was an understanding that people used hard drugs for lots of different reasons.
Drug overdose death, addiction, recovery and moderate safe use, has the potential to be a massive conversation. lots of conversations ( something wanky about saying conversation to many times:-)
So there's no questions.
Thanks Jez, good work!
We are quite happy to pour compliments on Russell – he is awesome and his grasp of the issues is streets ahead of the majority of folks commenting in this field.
I second that. And I think that some of the decisions that happen in this forum are archival quality. What you people are doing is important, and deserves serious interest from public health decision makers. Good work!
Sorry about the editing thing, it's habitable. Yes it was less complicated, but as always, it doesn't hurt to do the Saint johns ambulance first aid corse, just in case someone sitting next to you stops breathing. (for any reason).

Know Your Stuff’s Jez Weston has just tweeted this explanation of why the result is being announced now, rather than at the time of detection:
Could you pass the message back thru twitter, that I for one would appreciate Jez complimenting your efforts, by getting into a dissuasion here.
This millennia drug culture concerns me. I am responsible for guidance and wisdom toward a millennial teenager...
I'm told the Occupiers' new objection to the path is that it is bad for the environment because it's made of asphalt.
That's pretty hard case. I've got fifty tones of second hand asphalt sitting heaped up in my front yard. And its got lots of very tasty looking puha growing in it, amoung other vigorously competing weeds.
The intriguing idea in Hawking’s paper is that [the multiverse] left its imprint on the background radiation permeating our universe and we could measure it with a detector on a spaceship.
An autonomous car has killed a human. The human Women wasn’t crossing the road at the proper pedestrian vector.
Something biblical, that's not loading from its URL. Must be some particals got bounced out of the network.
There’s an app for that. Well, sort of.
That’s one of the problems with the iPhone. There’s no meaningful lasers to burn things with. It's all just 'virtual reality' smokes and mirrors.
Now it’s Saturday, it’s the day of the big fat news paper. with all the big celebrity opinions:
But there is one crucial thing they really needed to do. Labour should have told the parents of the alleged victims. If I was the father I’d be furious. But apparently the victim has that right to privacy. The parents deserved to know to help make the best decision for their teenager
The self styled, top of the pops journalist, also has an opinion about all the alcoholism slouching around all over the ruling liberal middle class, in my opinion.
