New Drug Laws Just Weeks Away


It’s all systems go for the A.C.T.’s new drug laws, to be introduced at the end of the month.

While there are plenty of arguments for and against the decriminalisation of small quantities of illicit drugs, the A.C.T. Branch of the Australian Medical Association is looking forward to the change…

Association President Walter Abhayaratna says authorities should not delay the introduction and he’s happy with what he’s seen in the plan so far.

From the end of the month, the territory will lessen the penalties against those caught with a small amount of hard drugs and offer diversion programs.

Police fear, Canberra will become Australia’s hard drugs haven.

The Opposition says it’ll overturn the act, if elected.
