Letter: Drugs report


by Arnold Jago

News Weekly, October 6, 2001

Sir,

The United Nations International Narcotics Control Board's Report for the year 2000 criticises Australia:

Paragraph 524: "The Board notes with concern that during the 1990s the social acceptance of drugs in Australia remained high with many people vocally in favour of legalising drugs ... The Board notes however that the majority of Australians are not in favour of the legalisation of cannabis ..."

Paragraph 525: "The focus should be on measures to reduce numbers of heroin users. Some States unfortunately challenge Federal Government policy and choose to support policies that run counter to the treaty obligations limiting the use of drugs to medical and scientific purposes, by establishing heroin injecting rooms ...".

The Board's 2001 Report will be even more critical - our pro-drug professors, media "experts", etc., have now been pressuring the Government to give heroin to addicts.

You couldn't get more irresponsible than that.

Arnold Jago,
Mildura, Vic
