Thank ACT for making drug laws safer
Please thank the ACT Government for removing criminal sanctions for personal possession of cannabis.
These new laws are not a silver bullet to drug harm - but they are a massive historic step towards taking control of a problem that is currently left to the chaos of a market controlled by criminals and gangs.
These laws make the territory safer for kids, make it easier for people in trouble with drugs to get access to health care, free up police resources to concentrate on big criminals and even make it harder for younger age kids to get hold of cannabis because of proper regulation.
This is a historic day for making the community safer and should be celebrated.
Thank you ACT Government - you have made history.
