  • It’s time for Drug Law Reform in Australia

    Drug Law Reform Australia*is Australia’s newest political force.
    We are not pro-drugs though we support decriminalisation, regulation and harm minimisation of currently illegal drugs. We are calling for the end of the so called “war on drugs”.
    As a political movement, we seek representation in Parliament. We believe the two major parties are incapable of solving this national problem. Their tough on crime rhetoric, trivializes the problem.
    We are different to existing parties in that we do not aspire to government. We exist solely to pursue a policy of drug law reform.
    We believe the current prohibition does not protect our children from illicit drugs or drug addiction. It fuels corruption of our democratic institutions and feeds billions of dollars to criminals and terrorists.
    We aim to contribute to the drug law debate and influence public opinion on all matters relating to Drug Policy.
    We want to stop ordinary Australians being treated like criminals and we want to stop criminals profiting from the illegal drug trade.
    We want to regulate and tax the sale of drugs, so profits are spent on health and rehabilitation services for those affected.
    We are aware of the dangers of excessive drug use but know that drug use cannot be eradicated*through the criminal justice system. It will be curbed by education and the provision of health services.
    We believe the Criminal Law, the Police, the Courts and Jails are not the solution. This “Tough on Crime”*approach has been tried for over 40 years, cost billions of dollars and failed.
    We believe the case to re-evaluate the current drug laws to be self-evident and call for fact and evidence based drug policies.
    We believe that the government must stop making ordinary Australians into criminals.
    There’s a clear lack of leadership on this issue coming from the government and opposition.
    Unlike the major parties, our focus is clear. We do not stand for anything*other than Drug Law Reform.
