Authors: Christopher BR Smith

Abstract: This article asserts that anarchist-inspired direct action tactics have played a fundamental role in the development of interventions ostensibly intended to reduce drug-related harm. Drawing from observations collected during the author's participant-observation-based ethnographic fieldwork endeavors in Canada and the U.S., the article interrogates several aspects of harm reduction philosophy and practice, including (1) The establishment of needle and syringe programs, (2) The development of autonomous local, national and international organizations by and for people who use illicit drugs, and (3) Direct drug/service user involvement in harm reduction policies and programs.
