What we need are new ideas. We need to reject the status quo. We need to quit listening to those who have been entrusted with these matters for decades. We need a relentless commitment to a bold vision of a nation that has solved addiction. We need innovation, entrepreneurship and risk taking. We need pragmatic, sustainable and demonstrable solutions. We're not going to get these things from the public sector, tired institutions or well intentioned but ill-informed politicians. That's where we come in.
