"Wand" by: Mollie Raymond

writing is such a sacred thing

and i feel like a bulldozer troll

for stamping on it with my

giant cement feet

for abusing words

imposing my will.

sorry i have not been gentle

and sorry that these days i only write to

take out the trash in my mind.

sorry i’m not open

to receiving, to submitting

to the universe.

sorry i’m not a wand,

one end planted in the earth, drawing up

water and minerals, the other end pointed

at the sky, channeling all

the sun’s brilliance,

then transmuting these energies into art.


when my therapist curses, it makes me think

it’s okay to take out my feelings on the ground,

to stomp, to scream, to say fuck.

sometimes i should still be quiet.

birds and singing bowls

make gentle music.

you have to stop talking to listen.


thank you for humbling me, god.

god knows, well i guess you know,

i needed it.

32. Drug Consumption Rooms with Peter Krykant
Peter Krykant previously used intravenous drugs whilst living homeless in Birmingham. His lived experience has shown him the benefits of drug consumption rooms; to prevent the spread of bloodborne diseases and protect people who use drugs from accidental overdose. Seven weeks ago, Peter set up the first UK drug consumption room which attracted the attention of the BBC and the local police force. Scotland's Lord Advocate and the Chief Constable of Police Scotland has made it clear that such activities violate national law. However, the local police force has not intervened with Peter’s operation. Peter is advocating to expand these services to multiple localities with the inclusion of trained medical professionals at each site. This intervention offers a unique insight to gather observational data on UK intravenous drug use. It could be the stepping stone needed to tackle the increasing number of UK drug-related deaths. https://twitter.com/PeterKrykant (Peter Krykant twitter) https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/info/20006/housing/1499/rough_sleeping (Birmingham rough sleepers’ team) https://drugscience.org.uk/drug-information/methadone/ (Methadone ) https://drugscience.org.uk/drug-information/benzodiazepines/ (Diazepam ) https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/politics/scottish-politics/1160888/analysis-after-two-days-of-drugs-death-conferences-in-glasgow-are-we-any-closer-to-finding-solutions/ (Drug Death summit 27th Feb Scotland 2020 ) https://www.theguardian.com/world/commentisfree/2018/nov/21/fixing-rooms-saving-lives-drug-addicts (Copenhagen Drug Consumption Room) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naloxone (Naloxone ) https://www.gofundme.com/f/overdose-prevention-glasgow (CrowdFunder page ) https://twitter.com/PaulJSweeney/status/1314526053310889984?s=20 (Site 2 – Gazebo ) https://www.scotland.police.uk/about-us/police-scotland/executive-team/chief-constable/ (Scotland's Lord Advocate and the Chief Constable of Police Scotland) http://www.sdf.org.uk/heroin-assisted-treatment-provided-glasgow/ (Heroin assisted-treatment) https://www.recovery.org.uk/methadone-addiction/methadone-addiction-treatment/ (Methadone programmes) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronnie_Cowan_(politician) (Ronnie Cowan) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alison_Thewliss (Alison Thewliss) https://www.changegrowlive.org/ (ChangeGrowLive) https://www.safeconsumptionglasgow.com/ (Safe Consumption Glasgow) Become a Drug Science Community Member: https://www.donate.drugscience.org.uk/ (https://www.donate.drugscience.org.uk/) Twitter: https://twitter.com/ProfDavidNutt (@ProfDavidNutt) https://twitter.com/Drug_Science (@Drug_Science) A https://fascinateproductions.co.uk/ (Fascinate Productions) podcast for Drug Science
