New Psychoactive Substances

Talk Adults

Is new always better? Learn more about the world of synthetic drug making, and the hidden risks of refinement.

Why are the new synthetic drugs manufactured in clandestine labs more powerful and potentially dangerous than traditional illicit drugs? Hear from Dr Samuel Banister, a medical chemist from the University of Sydney, to find out how new psychoactive substances work and why they pose a great risk to consumers.

This free event is part of Inspiring Australia’s Talking Science library speaker series.
