    In this video press release, Assembly Regulatory Oversight Committee Chairman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer), Vice-Chairman Tim Eustace (D-Bergen) and Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee Chairwoman Cleopatra G. Tucker (D-Essex) discuss a package of three bills that would align New Jersey’s medical marijuana program with legislative intent, making it work better for patients with severe illnesses who rely on it for medical relief. The first bill (A-3726) would add post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to the list of debilitating medical conditions that would qualify a patient to participate in the state’s medical marijuana program. The second bill (A-4286) would revise the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act to authorize an alternative treatment center to transfer to another alternative treatment center any excess inventory of: marijuana seeds, seedlings, or paraphernalia; marijuana plants; or marijuana packaged for use by qualifying patients in any form authorized by law. The third bill (ACR-224) would require the state Department of Health to revise certain regulations concerning New Jersey’s medical marijuana program because they are not consistent with the legislature’s original intent for the law and has placed undue burdens on patients.

                Luceo created a campaign producing on-site photography and video stations that engaged conference-goers in sharing their personal stories related to harm reduction.  Conference-goers were asked to complete branded, fill-in-the-blank styled cards which allowed them to tell key pieces of their stories.  Participants were then photographed in diptych with one half of the diptych showing their hand holding their story and the other half featuring a tight, very personal portrait of their face.  The resulting images were then propagated through HRC’s social media channels. Participants with especially superlative stories were recorded and edited into 30 and 60 second spots.  All generated media was shot in a simple, direct black-and-white style emphasizing the intrinsic humanity and dignity of each person.  Generated media will be filtered through HRC’s channels over the next two years.   A selection of the photographs from the campaign were selected to be exhibited at the 58th Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) at the United Nations in Vienna, Austria.  The exhibited works were printed on translucent backlit material and hung in large format throughout the windowed hallways at the CND.  Exhibited images were paired with relevant quotes from United Nations officials supporting broader adoption of harm reduction practices to international policy.  This will also be used in conjunction with HRC’s conversation surrounding UNGASS.

                  Continuing the Conversation-A Platform to Untangle Effects of Substance Use on HIV: MMSM and Substances Cohort at UCLA Linking Infections, Noting Effects (MASCULINE) Speaker: Pamina M. Gorbach, MHS, DrPH Professor, Department of Epidemiology Fielding School of Public Health Professor, Division of Infectious Diseases David Geffen School of Medicine Substance use has long been recognized as playing a pivotal role in the global HIV epidemic, both by serving to heighten risk for acquiring infection and to drive transmission through and across networks. In this webinar, Dr. Pamina Gorbach will review the known roles of substance use in our local HIV epidemic in Los Angeles, and point to the areas where mechanisms of enhanced transmission are still not fully understood. To address the large gaps in understanding of how substance use interacts with biological, behavioral and social forces, the National Institute on Drug Abuse awarded Dr. Gorbach and her team $7 million in the Fall of 2013 to establish a research program entitled MASCULINE (MSM and Substances Cohort at UCLA Linking Infections Noting Effects). The purpose of the program is to develop the first cohort of minority men who have sex with men (MMSM), to understand the direct interactions between non-injecting substances of abuse, infectious disease acquisition, and HIV progression.
