The war on drugs and HIV/ AIDS have long acted as accomplices. The two crises  have grown side by side, deeply influencing each other, and in some respects, a bright spot in the clouds that have shadowed HIV is how it has been an impetus of drug policy reform. People living with HIV/AIDS, and their allies, have propelled the passage of state medical marijuana laws and efforts to expand access to sterile syringes and medication assisted treatment. Why has HIV/AIDS been such a compelling rationale for drug policy reform? How has been harmed And how can we contemporaneously push it further and reach our goal of “getting to zero”? We'll hear stories from people living with and working in the HIV community who support harm reduction and safe syringe access.
