Saving Lives: Harm Reduction & Overdose Prevention Sites with Marilou Gagnon
Marilou Gagnon is a nurse, a professor, and a tireless harm reduction worker who is part of an inspiring movement in Canada which literally saves lives. In this episode we talk about pop-up overdose prevention sites, a new way of preventing people dying in Canada and Marilou is at the forefront of this new frontier. We also chat about the growing conversation for safe supplies - can Canada initiate a policy whereby those who consume drugs are able to get safe and regulated sources? And if this isn't enough, we also touch upon Canada's history with medical cannabis and the flaws which came with this model. This is truly an enlightening and inspiring episode!
