Prohibition hasn’t worked. The war on drugs has been an abject failure and the tough of crimes, heavy-handed police tactics pedalled by successive governments is costing lives.
Millions of Australians have used illegal drugs and the majority do so with little harm to themselves or others. Yet almost 36,000 people in NSW are convicted each year for possessing small amounts of drugs including cannabis, ecstasy and cocaine. Meanwhile, people who need help the most are punished instead of being able to access the support services they need.
It’s time for a Rethink of the way we treat people who use drugs.
We’re launching the Greens’ drug law reform campaign in the NSW parliament and we want you to be a part of it.
Join Cate Faehrmann MP alongside key experts soon to be announced to hear about what we can do to move towards an approach to drugs that prioritises harm reduction, not punishment. We’ll talk pill testing, drug decriminalisation and legalisation. Come along to find out how you can join the campaign for drug laws that make sense.
