Greg Kasarik, an LSD user pushing for Victorian government regulation of drug

“Far from trying to avoid the law, Mr Kasarik’s preparedness for repeat offending is based on wanting the drug LSD regulated by the state government, so he and others can buy and use it safely.”

An LSD user for a decade, Mr Kasarik has been so open about his”tripping” that he outed himself online, and has five times taken tabs on the steps of Parliament House – each time accompanied by supporters and a sandwich board advertising the fact. It was the fifth time, in April last year, that Mr Kasarik was arrested, and so got to advance his cause before a magistrate. On Tuesday, he told magistrate Paul Smith that the state’s laws around LSD were incompatible with the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities, which promotes freedom of thought, conscience, religion and belief.​
