Truth About The War On Drugs
WHAT – The True Story of The War on Drugs Johann Hari Live! + Panel with MC Helen Kapalos
WHEN – Wednesday 9 September
In the one hundred years since drugs were banned in the USA, the ‘War on Drugs’ has incarcerated millions, persecuted more and irreversibly altered the lives of people around the globe.
Often the justification for the 'drug war' has lacked any credible scientific or social substance, driven on by propaganda and blind political manoeuvring, masquerading as a ‘moral’ war.
This is the narrative that journalist Johann Hari, best-selling author of Chasing the Scream completely deconstructs.
In a deeply thought-provoking talk titled The True Story of The War on Drugs & the Myth of Addiction, Hari gives his account of an epic three year journey into discovering the hidden truth behind the war on drugs and addiction, debunking the lies we have been told by those most invested in this crusade against our civil liberties.
After his talk Johann will join MC Helen Kapalos and a live expert panel discussion of eminent influences in the fields of addiction, law enforcement and medicine including Greg Denham (LEAP), Fiona Patten (The Australian Sex Party), Annie Madden (AIVL) and more to be announced.
Please join us for this exclusive Melbourne event as Hari brings his radical reasoning to Australia.

WHAT – Wanderlust 108 Brooklyn
WHEN – Sunday 13 September - BOOK NOW
Wanderlust 108 is a triathlon unlike any you’ve ever known. This “mindful triathlon” brings three events together in your favorite local park: a 5k run, an outdoor yoga experience, and a guided meditation -- but with a twist. Unlike most triathlons, we place community above competition, inner peace above power, and self-awareness above strength. We prefer slow food to fast run times. For us, winning is measured in laughs shared and new friends made.
And unlike many events offering yoga and meditation, we combine our practice with a whole lot of fun. While we’re pretty sure you’ll be challenged during the day, we are equally sure you’ll have a great time doing so. From live bands and DJs on our main stage, to lawn activities like hooping, slacklining and acroyoga, to our local food and craft vendors, there’s a lot to do when you’re not on your mat.
