The Price of Freedom If the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is seen as a marathon race, where along the road is Australia currently placed? Halfway? Is the finish line in sight? On 60 Minutes, Tom Steinfort reveals the stark truth that we haven't even begun to raise a sweat. Epidemiologists say we're only about a kilometre into this 42km test of endurance. It means, despite Prime Minister Scott Morrison's understandable bullishness, all the talk of easing lockdown restrictions needs to be considered very carefully. For all our good work so far, complacency about the threat of the virus could lead to many more deaths, and a second wave of COVID-19 in Australia, especially in winter, might easily turn into a wipe-out. Way Out There For decades hallucinogenic, psychedelic or psychoactive drugs like LSD, magic mushrooms and ecstasy have been thought of as an evil and dangerous scourge. In that time there have been enough overdoses, especially among young people keen on experimenting, to validate the view. But an increasing number of doctors and therapists are now suggesting that under strict supervision, these drugs can have a vital therapeutic value, especially in helping sufferers of traumatic stress. As Sarah Abo reports, far from destroying lives, these controversial drugs could in fact be used to save them.
