As growing numbers of women languish in Latin American jails on drug-trafficking charges, their role in organized crime is under the spotlight - as is the prison system that incarcerates them, and the patriarchal society that appears to be failing them.

Last night's Lateline story on peer-naloxone programs.

Ziggi Ivan Santini's curator insight, August 27, 2013 1:58 PM

I think this can set in motion a whole new openness to drug-users in society, something that is vitally important in terms of avoiding that they isolate themselves and escalate the drug-use. Society needs to have a welcoming non-judgmental attitude in order to succesfully be able to offer a better alternative to a destructive lifestyle. This is a start. Additionally, one should keep in mind that before drug-users can be rehabilitated, they need to be alive first.

ReGenUC's comment, August 27, 2013 8:39 PM
We certainly seem to have reached a tipping point for naloxone in Australia. Hopefully, we'll soon see a significant expansion in its availability, with evaluation of its effectiveness in saving Australian lives.

▶ TOXIC TRAIL:  HOW A LANDMARK SUPERFUND CLEANUP PROGRAM LEAVES ITS OWN TOXIC LEGACY.

Below some of the world’s most expensive real estate, in the heart of Silicon Valley, pipes and pumps suck thousands of gallons of contaminated water every hour from vast underground toxic pools.

Giant industrial filters trap droplets of dangerous chemicals at the surface, all in the hope of making the water drinkable again and protecting the workers of tech giants such as Google and Symantec from toxic vapors. Often the original mess is almost untreatable. In Silicon Valley’s case, it would take 700 years of continuous treatment to make the groundwater drinkable. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ng-interactive/2014/mar/-sp-toxic-waste-silicon-valley-trail
