EP175 - Vic Election 2018 Politician Panel

Sunday, 11 November 2018 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Greg Denham, Executive Officer of the Yarra Drug & Health Forum recently returned from a short work trip to Canada, where he spoke with groups running supervised injecting centres and spoke to professionals working in Canada's drug policy space. Greg's trip also coincided with Canada legalising the recreational market for cannabis.

VICTORIAN ELECTION 2018 PANEL:

Richard Wynne MLA (ALP)
Member for Richmond

Judy Ryan (Reason)

(Note: Liberals informed YDHF they would not be running a candidate in the seat of Richmond. This is the seat where the medically supervised injecting centre resides and as far as we know at this point, the Liberals are still promising to close this centre if elected.)
