Drugs and Stuff: A Podcast about Drugs, Harm Reduction, Mass Incarceration, The Drug War and other Stuff, from the Drug Policy Alliance
About This Show
The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) is the nation's leading organization working to end the war on drugs. We focus on legalizing marijuana; criminal justice reform and ending draconian prison sentences for drugs; harm reduction policies that prevent overdoses and save lives; and we educate the public about drugs while dispelling popular myths and misinformation. Our host, Tommy McDonald, has been on DPA’s media team for 12 years and worked in journalism and radio before coming to DPA, and he’ll be mostly joined by Derek Rosenfeld, who has run DPA’s social media since 2010.

Episode 15: We Want to Build a World Where Legal Psychedelics Make Sense
4 days ago
The time has come for people who care about psychedelics to step out of the shadows and bring our voices to the table. In this episode, we’re joined by a couple of DPA’s in-house psychedelics experts: Jag Davies, DPA’s director of communications strategy, and Ifetayo Harvey, DPA’s communications associate. Both Jag and Ife previously worked at one of our closest allied organizations, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). They share some great wisdom and experience about psychedelic research, changing the conversation about how psychedelics are perceived, and weaving in psychedelics advocacy with the broader mission to decriminalize all drugs.
