ASK JIRASAK: 12 THINGS YABA USERS SHOULD KNOW
A short film from Thailand – By Jirasak Sripramong
Amphetamine Type Stimulants (ATS), particularly Crystal Methamphetamine (a.k.a Ice) and Yaba are very popular drugs in Asia. The rapid rise in ATS use has panicked governments in the region. They have resorted to war on drugs approaches while they have no clue that this drug isn’t bad, at least not anywhere near to the extent they have been painting it for the public.
“ASK JIRASAK” is an attempt to reduce the panic through sharing of 25 years of lived experiences with Yaba. He gives 12 valuable harm reduction tips to anyone who is planning or have been using Yaba or other ATS. The core idea behind this short film is that, “People are going to use drugs regardless of any deterring factors and ATS is widely available to everyone. If they are going to use it then, at least Jirasak’s experience will reduce harms and even save lives.”
