In this episode, Jade Boyd takes us through her life as a qualitative researcher scientist with British Columbia’s Centre of Substance Use to understand the experiences and challenges of women who use drugs.

This year the provincee of British Columbia legalised possession of 2.5 grams of certain illicit drugs for people 18 years and older. This is part of a three-year pilot in which  MDMA, Cocaine, Methamphetamines, and opioids have been decriminalised in hopes to tamp down on the escalating opioid crisis.
