/ The Informer / Health / Need a Rush? Amyl nitrate is finally legal, but good luck getting it


After years of being illegal, amyl nitrate has been legalised since 1 February. Instead of sex shops where it’s been available for years, it will be available in pharmacies.

The situation is confusing and there’s a lot of information in the community. Informer Executive Producer Arion Potts spoke with John Skerrit head of the Therapeutic Goods Administration, which oversees medications in Australia. John explains why this happened and what they’re hoping to achieve.
