Review of Misuse of Drugs Act needed to ensure users not jailed for life

The Greens have today called for a review of the thresholds set out in the Schedules to the Misuse of Drugs Act, to ensure proposed life sentencing for meth traffickers does not unjustly target users.

Spokesperson for Health Alison Xamon MLC said the Greens had a tough approach to drug traffickers and dealers supported the proposed amendment to the Misuse of Drugs Act because it targeted ‘Mr Bigs’ and addressed the drug supply.

“However, the Greens want to ensure there are not unintended consequences from the passage of this legislation,” Ms Xamon said.
