Legal highs 'may be linked' to rise in HIV in Glasgow area
For the first time in almost 30 years, new diagnoses of HIV related to drug injecting was at a comparable level among gay and heterosexual men.
Investigations into the outbreak highlighted that some drug users were sharing needles, syringes, spoons and water when preparing and injecting their drugs.
It has also highlighted that there is low awareness of the risks of HIV from doing so. [...] Dr Catriona Milosevic, consultant in public health medicine at NHSGGC, said it was "vitally important" that people who inject drugs do not share or reuse equipment.

Berliner Startup für „bezahlte Dates“: Ohlala sammelt 1,7 Millionen Dollar ein und launcht in New York | Gründerszene
Neben der Frage, wie das Produkt im neuen Markt angenommen wird, könnte die rechtliche Situation schwierig für das Startup werden. In New York ist es verboten, Sex gegen Geld anzubieten. Ohlala bewegt sich also in einer Grauzone. Laut Poppenreiter habe man sich aber auf den Markteintritt mit viel rechtlicher Beratung vorbereitet. So weise man die Nutzer in der Web-App darauf hin, dass sie nicht gegen das Gesetz verstoßen dürften. „Wir wissen nicht, was bei einem Date passiert“, erklärt die Gründerin weiter. „Das ist allein Sache zwischen den beiden Datenden.“ Kalkuliertes Risiko sei wichtig, um voranzukommen, glaubt Poppenreiter. So sagte sie bereits vergangenen Sommer zum Start von Ohlala im Gespräch mit Gründerszene: „Ich will mich sicher nicht mit Großen wie Uber vergleichen. Nur jedes Mal, wenn jemand etwas anders macht als vorher, ist er in einer Grauzone unterwegs. Sonst wäre es ja nichts Neues.“

Listen to sex workers – we can explain what decriminalisation would mean | Niki Adams | Comment is free | theguardian.com
The English Collective of Prostitutes argued that criminalising clients would undermine women’s safety, drive prostitution further underground and sabotage sex workers’ efforts to keep safe by displacing us to remote areas. Others questioned a crackdown on people who are trying to survive in the face of austerity policies which have increased poverty and therefore prostitution. LBGTQ groups called for an end to this “last vestige of Victorian moralism”, asking why some feminists had allied themselves with evangelical Christians who oppose gay marriage, sex outside marriage and abortion. Mactaggart’s justification for attacking “demand” (clients) is that “prostitution is an extreme form of exploitation”. But exploitation is rife in many industries,
