EGA Premiere screenings of Druglawed documentary
Live introduction by the film maker Arik Reiss
and Drug law reform panel
Melbourne screening Saturday 5th December
Sydney screening friday 4th december
DRUGLAWED is the documentary that finally clears the smoke around the failed international prohibition of cannabis
Each Screening will have a live introduction by the film maker and a Drug law reform panel - 'From medical to recreational - the road to regulation'.
DRUGLAWED details how New Zealand got rolled up in the US-led Drug War along with 183 other countries. Over the past 100 years the US has forced its fatally flawed model of drug prohibition on almost every country on earth. Four decades since Richard Nixon declared the War On Drugs, 22 million Americans have been arrested for marijuana. Only one country in the world arrests a higher proportion of its population for cannabis: New Zealand. While cannabis has now been legalised in multiple American states, the New Zealand govt remains firmly locked into the international Drug War matrix. Druglawed shows why it is essential to break out and how to do it.
Panel: From Medical to Recreational - The Road to Regulation
The Panel guests include Greg Denham (LEAP), Greg Chipp (Drug Law Reform Australia), Helen Barnacle (Clinical Psychologist), Fiona Patten (Australian Sex Party Victoria MLC), and Arik Reiss (Drug Lawed Producer). The Panel will be facilitated by Nick Wallis (Enpsychedelia).
The focus of the Panel will be on themes brought up in the movie; the concequences of the effects of prohibition on the population, especially Cannabis prohibition

About Entheogenesis Australis:
For a decade Entheogenesis Australis has provided a major meeting place for ethnobotanical enthusiasts and specialists in Australia to share information and celebrate community. The aims of the EGA conference are to address the issues relating to drug use from social, cultural and traditional perspectives. Past conference programs have drawn on covered diverse topics including therapy, biology, pharmacology, psychology, neuroscience, anthropology, botany, visionary art, culture, politics, law and more, to provide a realistic context of the role drugs and altered states play in the modern world.
Altered states of consciousness have long been a fundamental part of human culture, and as our world becomes increasingly fast-paced, alternative modalities are becoming ever more significant and consciously explored. If you’ve ever asked yourself: “has the ‘war on drugs’ created more problems than it has tried to solve?” or “is MDMA really a more dangerous drug than alcohol?” – then EGA is the place for you.
